As you might already know, we're a pretty obsessive group here at ComicsAlliance, and one of our biggest obsessions is Jem and the Holograms
, the truly outrageous story of a glam band built on a secret identities and bizarre adventures. Naturally, we were all pretty stoked when Integrity Toys launched their new series of pricey Jem collector dolls
, although to be honest, that first wave felt a little lacking. Sure, Jerrica and her alter-ego are a must, but Rio and Synergy? C'mon. This ain't amateur night.
Now, though, things are picking up, as Integrity has announced Series 2
, featuring Kimber, Aja and Shana
, finally giving us that Holograms reunion tour we've been so desperately wanting. Check out pictures of the new wave below!
The second wave includes Kimber
, (keytar, backing vocals, sibling rivalry), Aja
(lead guitar, concern for orphans) and Shana
(drums, guitar, aspirations of a career in fashion that are frequently made moot by the fact that the band has a sentient hologram-projecting computer). Unfortunately, the Misfits have yet to be released, which means you can't re-enact all the subtext of "The Bands Break UP" with Kimber and Stormer, but one assumes that'll be the focus of a third wave.
The dolls are set to retail for the (truly outrageous) price of $119 each, shipping in late March or early April. That's a hefty fee, but what price is too high for this much glamour, glitter, fashion and fame?
