This was the very last year of the Integrity Toys doll line, ever, sadly as far as anyone knows! Many Jem fans have gotten so many of their Jem doll dreams come true, and many completists had a hard time keeping up with affording this high quality line and were quite satisfied the line was ending for that reason. Integrity Toys had promised Jem fans four last releases this year, and they turned out to be Zipper x2, bride Kimber, a studio playset, and Sophisticated Lady Jem/Jerrica.

But Jem fans had also been asking IT for another release of Aja and Shana aswell as Jem in the last outfit she was seen in the cartoon, so IT announced they would do one last extra release of these three things.

All in all this line lasted more years than the original Hasbro line, it included more characters, more releases of Jem herself, more high quality fashions and accessories. But it included less fashions and less playsets. Of course there were still many individual wishes left, fashions and characters from both the original doll line and the cartoon. And some of the things we fans still wished for, was a Synergy playset in her computer form, a Rockin' Roadster, the Starlight Girls, official dolls of Jacqui/Howard/Jeff/Jamie, and a bunch of more fashion looks from the cartoon and 80's doll line.

What we did get, sold in hundreds of each release, so it was definitely successful in many senses, especially considering this is 30+ years after the original line and considering the prices of these high quality dolls. I don't know what it takes to be worth it for IT, but many fans certainly hope for a continuation in the future, especially if Hasbro doesn't release anything for the Jem brand themselves, perhaps Hasbro could make it more affordable for other doll companies.

  • Zipper (Blond) 14094A
    Very little is known about the mysterious and shady character simply known as "Zipper", other than the fact that he always gets the job done, no matter the cost. A fan of shady deals, Zipper is totally unscrupulous and goes to great lengths to fulfill his assignments for Eric Raymond and The Misfits. Anything for a dollar and to scare Jerrica Benton and her friends to quit the industry! With his extensive criminal background, Zipper knows when it's time to "blend in" and can change his hair color or disguise himself at will to fulfill any "special" assignment!

    Before Jem collectors knew Zipper was released, some saw the 2015 IT Color Infusion fashion Wild One as Zipper's, and thought maybe Zipper himself would never appear. Then some Graphix dolls were shipped by mistake with a Zipper box, which was big hint. Well IT gave us some very clever official clues even: "No one will get arrested because if the next character gets too hands on, usually things get a little "explosive"... ".

    IT crossed some bounderies with this doll. Kinda the same feeling most Jem fans probably had when Danielle suddenly appeared as a doll, before other more expected characters. But Zipper had been among the top most requested characters at this point. Even more than Howard Sands, Jacqui Benton, or Jeff Wright. Happy to see it really happened, and with two hair colors even.

    What a clever way to comment on the fact that Zipper got another haircolor after the first five episodes, in IT'S description of him.

    He got a brand new head sculpt even! I guess felt IT felt they had no head sculpt that did this badguy justice, and wanted to avoid the situation with the Eric Raymond doll. And they went in the right direction with it, he looks tough, but still I can't say it exactly resembles him. I'm not usually a superfan of flocked hair mixed with regular hair, but for that part this looks very good.

    His outfit looks great, that's Zipper! He even has his logo on the back of the jacket, these are the kind of details that make Jem fans fall in love with IT for real. Still I don't think they went all in with his jacket, not including any studs/spikes on the shoulders. Whenever IT makes a decision like that, I assume it's to appeal to none none-Jem IT-collectors aswell, although I guess they thought the big logo on the back wouldn't bother them.

    The second outfit fits his badguy image and was the second most worn by him in the cartoon, and he even got the ropes included here. Logical characteristic choice for Zipper, although it wasn't a very representative choice for a line like this. Even Zipper had more interesting and colorful outfits, like the one in "Hot Time In Hawaii".

    Where are all the cool accessories we could had gotten, at least in cardboard? Well I'm happy with what we got. Some collectors were unhappy with the choice of releasing Zipper at all though. Since this was so close to the end of the line. Some only wanted re-releases of things we saw in the 80's line and even unreleased things from that line. Then this doll appeared with a brand new head sculpt, and sold out faster than probably any other Jem doll ever! Perhaps partly because he was sold in low editions of each haircolor, and because some none Jem fans, other IT collectors, helped make this new sculpt sell out. But still it was quite a statement from cartoon fans who had not gotten anywhere near as much as the doll fans from IT's collection had. Zipper was only the 8th cartoon-based doll released for this line of 58 dolls in total! Sure the 80's line was great, but with the cartoon so closely connected I can't see how some collectors can be such a huge fan of the 80's doll line and not adore the cartoon aswell.

    Also people were worried IT had used as much as two of the remaining spots for the last announced spots of this line, by making two Zippers. But it turned out IT counted this officially as one release. There were also debates about Zipper's haircolor once we saw the result, which some thought was supposed to be more towards red, due to some screwed up Rhino DVD releases that messed with the colors, or atleast yellow.

    This and the blackhaired Zipper, is definitely the rarest of all dolls in this line. Skintone FR White. Edition of 200 dolls of this blond version of Zipper. This was an IT Direct exclusive. Price was $130.

    Cartoon:
    This character was created by Christy Marx. Yes he had blonde hair in the cartoon (first 5 episodes), unless you are referring to the Rhino DVD or some other miscolored version where it might look red. Yellow would had been fine too. Although he had brown eyes with his blonde hair in the cartoon, rather than the blue on this doll.

    Can't go wrong with an outfit like this. First sight tells us that is our guy! But fact is there are some differences. Jacket is black leather yes, but it's a whole other design almost, with pockets, no "waistbelt" at bottom, it looks more slim, and has no studs/spikes on the shoulders. Also, I always wondered why IT, even when they did exact matches, would pose a clothing wrong, like in their promotional pictures where Zipper is only seen with a closed jacket in all pictures, while he never closed it in the cartoon. I've seen so many occasions of this in this line, so I'm almost thinking the people who design these dolls are not the same who pose them for pictures, atleast not always. Great job on the Zipper logo on the back of the jacket. And great detail with the back pockets on the pants. Zipper's shirt is supposed to be light gray, rather than white.

    Zipper had brown shoes with his main outfit, which IT could had known if they had checked this site even more frequently, which is the only site with a Zipper fashion guide. But atleast the black shoes matched his burglar outfit better and looks good with his leather jacket aswell.

    Second outfit was alot brighter in color in the cartoon. And it had no belly pocket. And rope was brown.

  • Zipper (Jet Black) 14094B
    Very little is known about the mysterious and shady character simply known as "Zipper", other than the fact that he always gets the job done, no matter the cost.

Anything for a dollar and to scare Jerrica Benton and her friends to quit the industry! With his extensive criminal background, Zipper knows when it's time to "blend in" and can change his hair color or disguise himself at will to fulfill any "special" assignment!

    Read the description and contents of the blonde Zipper doll, same things go here mostly, since they share verything except for the haircolor and a letter in the product number. I prefer Zipper as blonde, but I prefer the outcome of this doll because this headsculpt looks better to me with black hair. Apparently most buyers agreed and bought a blackhaired Zipper.

    What could be better than getting Zipper, but getting two versions of him at once? Well, as an IT collector you might feel they could had included the blackhaired head at the same price though, with the quick switch feature, not forcing us completists to buy two dolls. But if that would have raised the price, then atleast we got the option to choose when they released them one by one.

  • 14093
    Seen here wearing the dress that she wore on that faithful day when she almost got married (much to her sister and friends' dismay) in the JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS™ episode titled "And The Winner Is?", KIMBER BENTON™ looks ravishing as a rock 'n roll bride!

    What a special thing to get a wedding doll for the Jem line, going in a completely different direction which we haven't seen alot of in this line with all its rockstar outfits, and they really went over the top with a big dress to give us that glamorous fairytale wedding feeling.

    To get that hairdo from the cartoon, this doll actually got slightly less hair than the other Kimber releases. So I suggest keeping it in it's original hairdo, especially since its hair is cut in an unusual way that only fits this hairdo, and you will get very different lengths. Same thing as for some other dolls in this line like Rockin' Romance Jem and I think Danielle.

    Although many wanted Kimber in this outfit, by now we had already gotten two previous Kimber dolls (plus an extra head), but only one of Aja, Shana, and Raya. But IT later added another Aja and Shana as the very last release of this line with their Glitter 'n Gold fashions, and even including an extra matching fashion each with them for Raya and Kimber with them for completion. I for one don't think there were too many Kimbers, since there were countless more releases of Jem herself.

    Wedding dresses is like a department of their own, unrelated to the music themed outfits in this cartoon. So when doing a doll like this, the dress should be done almost exactly like the original it's based on to atleast give us the feeling this isn't just a wedding look we're buying, or I guess it should be supported by something like an official wedding release of Jeff or many accessories. This doll is kind of a match though with both the already released Jeff (Ollie) doll, Sean, and even has a connection to the Award Night Jem doll whose outfit first appeared in the same episode. So I guess you could say IT already covered that.

    This release a quite large box for one doll. Perhaps it was originally even going to come with an extra doll like Jeff, or an extra outfit like a Holograms' bridesmaid dress? Or Permanent Wave? Since it didn't include such extras, I wouldn't had mind if this doll had been pushed into a much smaller box, because it would easily fit, and cut alot of shipping costs. But despite even having a large box, it came with few accessories unlike what we're used to in this line.

    This is the first Kimber without stagemakeup, which looks very good on her and it's almost surprising they didn't already give her this makeup for her previous release. And this is also the first Kimber to have the Japan skin tone, while all the previous ones were FR White.

    For probably the first time for this line, a doll leaked in its package and everything (I never even knew at the time), as a seller posted it on ebay for 350$ and with as much as 11 pictures. Jem fans didn't know if it was real or not. The seller was in Rhode Island, and is a woman who has said to be a former Hasbro employee. My guess is that Hasbro was given some dolls when they were just produced from IT, and they ended up with a person who just wanted to sell it, with no bad intentions of revealing anything in advance probably. This same seller also sold other IT Jem dolls, although I don't think they were leaked before their release. Like a Lindsey, Zipper blond, Graphix, Raya, 4 Rock 'N Royalty Riot, 3 Designing Woman Pizzazz, 6 Bands Break Up Kimber, 2 Bands Break Up Stormer, Shana, 2 Danse, 2 Sean, Twilight In Paris Jem/Jerrica, Regine. So I think it's safe to say IT shipped atleast 6 of each doll to Hasbro for approval before officially anouncing them to the public.

    Edition of 400 dolls. Price was $130. IT Direct exclusive.

    Interpretations:
    Cartoon:
    This look was introduced in the episode "Hollywood Jem Part Two And The Winner Is...", when Kimber was about to marry Jeff Wright. The similarities are obvious, it's a white wedding dress, and they even took notice of many specific details for starters anyway, even if some of they ended up being shaped slightly differently. The leaves on the roses are missing on the doll. The veil is much shorter than in the cartoon. This doll didn't get the garter (and nothing blue infact) as seen in the cartoon. And no wedding ring. Which was a shame because it was made a big deal of in the cartoon story and even song. I guess the dress cost alot to make with all that fabric. Kimber has a slightly different hairstyle in the cartoon with no sidehair hanging down.

    Was never released, although rumors say there were plans.

  • Sophisticated Lady Jem Duo-doll Gift Set 14096
    Pragmatic music executive JERRICA BENTON and the glamorous JEM are fully articulated dolls with fully rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes. Dressed to impress as always, JERRICA wears an 80s inspired two-piece ensemble in complementary shades of purple and lavender, offset with a bright pink hat, neck scarf and scarf belt. She also completes the look with faux-suede booties, a dark purple bracelet and her signature JEMSTAR earrings, which allow her to turn into the fantastic JEM! Once transformed into JEM, she wears a truly outrageous two-piece skirt suit with strategically placed embroidery details that add all of the glamour that she needs for those exciting interviews and special appearances! JEM also wears a matching embroidered hat, a beautiful necklace and some killer pumps to complete her fantastic look! Two individual doll stands and a certificate of authenticity are also included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only.

    For this Jem look, many fans were pretty certain it would be either this look, or the 1986 doll fashion Up & Rockin' which some preferred. But I think most preferred this, although the coloring is quite predictable for the Jem dolls in this line by now, where 2/3 fashions have had very pink/violet colors.

    Unlike the IT releases "Twilight In Paris" and "Who Is He Kissing", this set has the original Hasbro fashion name. I guess IT found nothing iconic in the cartoon to rename this fashion into. I guess "Jealousy" would be the only other option.

    That embroidery on Jem's outfit is stunning, but still with the risk of sounding totally negative, the embroidery aswell as the choice of fabric makes Jem look a little older, almost like a lady (yes I know that's part of the name of this). Although I like the embroidery in itself, I would had done without it, and with the correct cartoon colors instead. Either way, Jem looks like a classy businesswoman, such a cocky outfit.

    For the very first time in this line, IT changes the haircolor of Jem to actual pink instead of peach! I know it's rude of me to call the previous dolls' hair peach, but it kinda was! I hadn't even realized this change from the promotional pictures, until much later when I finally opened my doll box. Not only that, the hair is a different type of material, nylon rather than the previous saran. This particular color is called "kitten pink". Jem fans definitely prefer this haircolor!

    In a way this is the ultimate Jem IT doll, with a nice combination of a known Jem look, well made, great recognizable makeup, full hair in a very nice color.

    IT must have looked at the model cels of these fashions. Because IT photographed their dolls in very similar poses. Very likely they referred to this very site, since both model cels were available here colored, and especially the detail of Jem having a purse, because that is only ever seen once in this cartoon and this is the only site where it's mentioned at all (not even the doll came with the purse). And as for one of the other poses IT did for the Jem doll, where Jem is holding up her hands, that must be based on a certain screen capture that is floating around the net.

    Skintone Japan. Edition of 400 sets. Price was $175. IT had a limit of only one set to be purchased by each W Club member the first day. Although this set of dolls was posted for sale on ebay before it was for sale for W Club members, by someone who got ahold of one probably through Hasbro.

    In time for this release, we had been told it was the very last release of IT in their Jem line, but they did reveal before they started selling this set that they had some more suprises coming up. Had they not informed us in time, I bet this set would had sold out crazy fast, but it's a very honest thing to do to share that info with us in advance.

    Cartoon:
    For the first time it's a good match for haircolor, rather than the previous peach ones, well perhaps the cartoon had even brighter pink, but this is close enough.

    I'm happy IT went with this color and shape of the outfit rather than the Hasbro look. But nontheless let's mention the differences. The embroidery on the collar and lapels is a new thing, and had a darker purple color in the cartoon rather than the reddish color it gets here. I feel it's a slight bit of a shame that the red and purple don't quite go well together, so I prefer the cartoon color, but it's not bad.

    IT added a bowtie on the back of the shoes, which I can't recall from the cartoon. They even did that necklace especially for this design, which I really appreciate, and maybe they found the look of it from this site, since it's the only site that pictures it on the internet, and same thing with the purse which Jem seldom even carried with this outfit. That top on the IT doll was not in the cartoon, a nice extra though. They made Jem's hair full like in the cartoon, but a little bit curly. Brown eyebrows instead of blue.

    80's line:
    Obviously not nearly the same colors on any part of the fashion, since IT went with the cartoon look. The Hasbro doll has sandals instead of pumps. Hat is totally different in shape. By coincidence the necklace which IT based on the cartoon necklace, also resembles the necklace in shape that came with the Hasbro doll fashion, but on the other hand that shape wasn't specific for only this Hasbro fashion. IT doll came with no glasses. The top underneath the jacket didn't originally didn't come with the Hasbro doll.

  • Sophisticated Lady Jerrica Benton Duo-doll Gift Set 14096
    Pragmatic music executive JERRICA BENTON and the glamorous JEM are fully articulated dolls with fully rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes. Dressed to impress as always, JERRICA wears an 80s inspired two-piece ensemble in complementary shades of purple and lavender, offset with a bright pink hat, neck scarf and scarf belt. She also completes the look with faux-suede booties, a dark purple bracelet and her signature JEMSTAR earrings, which allow her to turn into the fantastic JEM! Once transformed into JEM, she wears a truly outrageous two-piece skirt suit with strategically placed embroidery details that add all of the glamour that she needs for those exciting interviews and special appearances! JEM also wears a matching embroidered hat, a beautiful necklace and some killer pumps to complete her fantastic look! Two individual doll stands and a certificate of authenticity are also included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only.

    This doll was released in a set with the above Jem doll. Also Jerrica got another haircolor, more yellow. Which is nice for variation, even if not completely necessary. Kinda funny when you think of how characters like Video, Lindsey and Danse (partly) which are known for their yellow hair, were released with blonde hair in this line, and then comes this Jerrica doll with kinda yellow hair although Jerrica is known for her bright blonde hair. I think I like this Jerrica's hair the best of all though, it looks so full.

    This is the fourth Jerrica doll of IT, if you count the head included with Twilight In Paris Jem. First Jerrica doll for two years! And first ever with a smiling head sculpt, which is actually Jem's main head sculpt, which many fans wanted for completion since Jem had already been released in both her own and Jerrica's face sculpt.

    As for the fashion, it has to be said, why this fashion for Jerrica? Obviously since it kinda matches the style and colors of the Jem fashion. But the way I see it, there were several Jerrica outfits that could be a good match and more wanted by fans like... this, or atleast this or really this or even this. All of which were as visible in the cartoon, or much more so even than the chosen outfit. But then again both of these outfits were worn in the episode "In Stitches", so I guess IT saw a match there. Especially since this is the outfit Jerrica is wearing underneath the Jem outfit when the hologram temporarily disappears on the airplane. Seems to be a favorite episode of IT really, since they released as much as seven (!!!) fashions for their line from this episode, and that's on top of the original doll outfits. Or does IT know something we don't about this fashion? Was it an original Hasbro plan? Jerrica does have a hat with it after all, which she did in the 80's line to cover the pink hair, and she rarely wore a hat in the cartoon with cartoon-only fashions. It's a very nice look for Jerrica either way, colorwise and as a match for the Jem outfit. It offers us collectors alot of pieces of fabric, and feels like a full outfit. Skintone Japan. Edition of 400 sets. Price was $175.

    It's easy to see it's the same fashion, very recognizable shapes and colors, although many Jem fans are probably not very familiar with this look. The pink is perhaps a slightly different nuance. The IT hat looks bigger. The collar looks fuller on the doll. The IT skirt could had been a tiny bit longer. Biggest difference is the shape of the shoes. IT made the bracelet more detailed.

  • This is Farewell 140??

    While she wore this costume multiple times during the course of the hit 80's cartoon show, this outfit is mainly remembered as the one she wore in the very last scene of the very last episode of the show titled "A Father Should Be" as she waved goodbye to her us viewers.

    So this is the last we ever see Jem wear, and it's even the most worn fashion in the entire cartoon except for her main pink outfit! There are even theories that this outfit was infact a planned Hasbro outfit. Still, there are a large number fashions from the cartoon I would rather had represented the last we ever saw of Jem in this line, since they all appeared after this chosen outfit. Skin tone Japan. Price was $130.

  • 140??
    AJA LEITH is the most rockin' and rollin' HOLOGRAM.

    I hope this outfit turns out to have pink colors, unlike the art used in IT promotion which incorrectly looks almost red. I would had preferred Aja's last outfit to be "She Makes An Impression" from the 80's doll line, or A-5 you know the white and red one which she wears more than any other in the cartoon (except for her main outfit). But I guess some fans prefer outfits they can match with existing IT doll releases to pose on shelves.

  • 140??
    SHANA ELMSFORD is well known for her design talents and for all of the truly outrageous looks she created for her friends and band members, THE HOLOGRAMS!

    I guess we needed another Shana, since we got three Kimbers. Some have wanted this outfit in particular, but in itself it's not very appealing to me. Many Jem collectors seem to prefer matching fashions for the entire group rather than cool individual ones, for posing them in their shelves. IT probably thought this would make people want these to complete the Jem and Rio GNG look.

    To me the whole GNG look had lots of ruffles, an 80's thing that to me spells old-fashioned or downright clown-outfit. But I hope IT makes it look magical, and give it the same shimmering fabric as the GNG Jem.

    I hope the doll itself is not all too similar to the first one, because I like variation when I buy a whole other doll.

    What a smart idea of IT to include a bonus outfit for another character, so they don't have to release a fifth Kimber. Jem fans really would had liked a second Raya though.

    This, and the other two dolls announced at the same time, were the last IT ever released, as far as we know anyway, and all three were the first that ever required a deposit to be paid before we even saw any prototype of the dolls. And the number of dolls manufactured was based directly on the number of pre-orders that they received.
