    The Return of JEM- 2012

    PAWTUCKET, R.I. - SEPTEMBER 8, 2011 - For the first time at New York Comic Con, Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) will attend the convention at the Javits Convention Center in New York City from October 13-16 to present many of its iconic brands and meet with fans. Hasbro will have a significant booth presence featuring current and upcoming products from its TRANSFORMERS, G.I. JOE, JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS and KRE-O brands and BEYBLADE, MARVEL and STAR WARS lines. 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.
    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:

    JERRICA BENTON

    RIO PACHECO

    AJA LEITH

    SHANA ELMSFORD

    KIMBER BENTON

    MINX

    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.

    Happy for Jem fans. Its good when any 80s brand makes a comeback. Any word on a new cartoon series? Or is it just toys for now?

    Just toys at the moment, and no real word on wether its a 'Re Imagining' and Up Dating, or a Anniversary Collectors 'masterpiece' line (Im hoping its this!).

    Though The show has been a hit since it started Syndication, and the recent release of the DVDs has had an impact.

    I personally wonder if Hasbro have pitched Jem as an answer to Mattels Monster High. which I actually thought they would do when Bratz were huge!

    Mattel dont Play nice though, so expect a relaunch of Barbie and the rockers next year! (now with Hat)

    If they can be made as cool as the Monster High line, the return of Jem could be awesome.

    Is there anything in there that actually says they're making anything?

    It sounds to me like they're keeping trademarks alive and maybe considering something new.

    Over at Jemcon we have been keeping track of all the 'TM' registrations for years, but this is the 1st time Hasbro has ever mentioned Jem in a Press release.

    Especially placing the property next to its other Big hitters Joe and TF!

    and the Names registered are quite Random, usually they just re register Every character from the vintage line! this is specific!

    We just hafta wait until NYTF!

    BUT BUT...how can she be truly outrageous in today's world?

    ...oh wait, kids today brought the 80's back for some reason, so I guess she can continue unabated.

    THAT IS AWESOME!!! Hasbro does their toy lines justice some times. Is this a one shot? (grumbles away that hasbro should have gotten thundercats)

    I hope not too! I only paid $50 for my Joan Jett. I'm not paying that much for Jem.

    Though I'd really like a nice Jetta.

    I think the "regular" line will be $50-75 given the company that makes them past history

    Whoa that looks AMAZING.

    Here's a link to their website:
    http://integritytoys.com/jemandtheho...lywood-jem.php

    Lots more cool pics of Jem here:
    http://integritytoys.com/jemandtheho...lywood-jem.php

    Her face looks a bit more severe than I'd imagine Jem would, but maybe that's more in keeping with the original doll's look? Anyway, she looks great. But since they are calling these "high end" dolls... I'm thinking the regular releases won't be MUCH cheaper.

    Which is a bummer. I would have done $50 each... but $100+ is pushing it for me. Still... tempted... but not sure I need a Hollywood Jem. I'd probably just get the regular edition when she comes out.

    Hasbro throws down the gauntlet. Mattel needs to reply in kind with a SDCC She-Ra based on her doll outfit and rooted hair next year.

    -Alt rooted hair head with Filmation tiara, removable to see Adora's hairstyle beneath.
    -Doll sword and shield
    -leaner doll/model body and limbs
    -crystal castle box with working "light hope"
    -Kowl "PoP" flocked yellow toy deco

    Mattel...watch Jem!
