Additionally, Hasbro will host panels for several of its properties and action figure lines as well as offer for sale several HasbroToyShop.com special edition products made for New York Comic Con convention goers.OMG!!! This is news Ive waited Years for!Hot on the tail of Hasbro's press release (9/8/11) officially marking their presence at next month's New York Comic Con, several standard character trademarks have been registered for the JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS brand at the United States Patent and Trademark Office:
Each have been registered as "Dolls, doll clothing and doll accessories; toy figures and playsets for use therewith". As some of you may know, this is standard practice by Hasbro to secure created, and they have to be used in order to keep the trademarks. This news continues to build upon the anticipation of the reveals from Hasbro at the upcoming New York Comic Con as it could very well mean that Hasbro intends to relaunch the JEM brand much like it has other brands from the '80s. Of particular note is the "MINX" register, which is a character from the later addition of the 3rd band, the Stingers. Members from the Misfits remain absent from this update, but this is just the beginning of Hasbro's venture into this potential relaunch.
