Integrity Toys 3rd reveal for 2013: The Stingers from Jem & The Holograms

Second line to be revealed by Integrity Toys (and a giddy Alain) was another instalment of the Jem franchise: The Stingers. This is a much anticipated release by Jem collectors and fans, as the Stingers dolls were never produced in the original Hasbro line up. Let's see the three dolls, which come with the usual attention to detail and accessories shown in previous dolls of this line.


Item #14036
Rory "RIOT" Llewelyn™ 
The JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS™ Collection 
Suggested Retail Price: $119.00
Estimated Ship Date: September 2013 
Shipper Dimensions (Including Shipper): 15.5" X 9.5" X 3"


Rory "RIOT" Llewelyn™ is a 12.5"-inch fully articulated male vinyl fashion figure with fully rooted hair. RIOT comes dressed with his signature 80's on-stage look which is composed of a long bright yellow frock coat with black and red embroidery, a neo-romantic ruffled shirt, skin tight black pants and his white boots. RIOT also comes complete with his signature guitar, guitar strap, amp cord, microphone, miniature Stingers album with sleeve, alternate set of hands, a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. For adult collectors 14 and up only.


The lapels have micro-sequins, as do the pants. He's sporting an earring too. He looks like the child of David Lee Roth and David Coverdale.


Item #14037
Ingrid "MINX" Kruger™
The JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS™ Collection
Suggested Retail Price: $119.00
Estimated Ship Date: September 2013
Shipper Dimensions (Including Shipper): 15.5" X 9.5" X 3"


Ingrid "MINX" Kruger™ is a 12"-inch fully articulated vinyl fashion doll with rooted blond hair and hand applied eyelashes. MINX is dressed in her on-stage costume, which consists of a star studded bra top, ultra-tight pants, boots and her signature over sized hat and jewellery. MINX also includes her special keyboard synthesizer, amp cable, miniature sheet music, alternate set of hands, a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. The synthesizer requires minor assembly; instructions are provided. For adult collectors 14 and up only.


I beet this one goes first, if only for the detailed synthesizer! She could easily be Madonna (in her Like A Virgin period) with a few alterations. The sculpt looks suspiciously like the old Ayumi one (although all Jem dolls have original unique sculpts).


Item #14038 
Phoebe "RAPTURE" Ashe™ 
The JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS™ Collection 
Suggested Retail Price: $119.00 
Estimated Ship Date: September 2013
Shipper Dimensions (Including Shipper): 15.5" X 9.5" X 3"


Phoebe "RAPTURE" Ashe™ is a 12"-inch fully articulated vinyl fashion doll with rooted blond hair and hand applied eyelashes. RAPTURE is dressed in her unique on-stage costume, which consists of a high-contrast black and yellow top with a matching skirt, black fishnet stockings and gauntlet and high-heeled pumps. RAPTURE also includes her signature black and gold guitar, guitar strap amp cable, a miniature "love potion" recipe, alternate set of hands, a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. For adult collectors 14 and up only.


Some said she reminds them of the original Vanessa. I think her face is a bit wide for that, but she looks more like Anja. These dolls do not have weird flashy markings on the face like most of the Jem line does, so they can be redressed easily and fit in with other fashion lines. Be careful with what you put on them though, the body is unique to them and Color Infusion line so not all clothes are an easy match.
