Integrity Toys has previewed the doll Hasbro will be offering at the San Diego Comic Con booth #3329 (July 18-21, 2013) as its Jem and the Holograms exclusive doll: Glitter 'n Gold Jem/Jerrica Benton. Additionally, as an IT Direct exclusive, Glitter 'N Gold Rio Pacheco will be offered as a companion.
Jem uses a new, smiling face sculpt (I think it's really cute, actually!), and she has pink and golden blonde hair (I love it!) with hand-applied lashes. She includes two fashions:
- an evening look, which includes a white satin bodysuit with gold embroidery, gold mesh tights, gold pumps, gold lamé high slit skirt with oversized bow, white faux fur stole with lamé trim, bangle bracelets, and Jemstar earrings
- white pencil skirt and matching pumps, which match the bodysuit for a separate look
Additionally, she includes a stand, a microphone, her Glitter 'N Gold award, and extra posing hands. (The Jerrica Benton doll is sold separately.) The doll uses the Japan skin tone and has a new facial screening with side-glancing eyes.
According to an email from Integrity, the entire production run and sale will be handled by Hasbro, and they will be handling all sales at the SDCC booth. You'll need to be there in person to buy it--any extras will be available for sale online at the Hasbro Toy Shop, but in the past, these dolls have sold out quickly. Interestingly, I don't see an edition size listed.
Integrity is producing a limited edition Glitter 'N Gold Rio Pacheco doll. His cost is $119 plus shipping and handling, and he will be available for the public for sale on July 17, 2013. W Club Members will be giving a priority link starting July 16, 2013. He will be available while quantities last, and will be shipping the week of July 22. Again, I don't see an edition size on this doll, either.
He has rooted purple hair, side glancing blue eyes, and is a Latino skin tone FR:Homme body. He includes a gold jacket, long sleeve shirt and bow tie, plus white pants, shoes and socks. His accessories include a gold watch, record, a white rose for Jem, and champagne bottle and glasses for a toast. Of course, he also includes a stand.
