    Got my Misfits yesterday from Fantastic Plastic Toys (thanks Mark)! I didn't really have the time or space to bust them out completely, but I opened them up and looked at them in the box, and they were beautiful (I <3 Stormer SO much). I've never bought dolls before, so these gals were a great first experience. Hopefully I'll be able to unbox them and get the full experience this weekend.

    I can honestly say the Misfits are the best dolls Integrity has ever made, they are simply stunning and from all the ones I have seen virtually flawless.

    They really did listen to the fans after the Holograms came out and I can only imagine what the Stingers might look like if they decide to release them

    I got in the Misfits I ordered for my sister's Christmas gifts today. I can my tendrils on Aja, Kimber and Shanna but Jem, Jerrica and Rio are another matter altogether..

    Opened up Pizzaz tonight before company came over. She's great. My stand was a tiny bit looser than past figure stands, but works just fine. I also was going a bit insane getting the ribbon on her leg to stay up and on! But other than that, she's REALLY cool. She looks so bad ass! I love the darker chrome of her mic stand. Can't wait to open up the rest tomorrow.

    Seems they live up to the hype and then some. Can't wait for them to turn up in the post. Gees Iam having some good luck lately first I read that my fav horror actor is coming to Oz Comic Con (please for reals this time) my new car is finally arrived at the car dealership (had to wait as the colour I wanted was in limited supply and more of them needed to be built) and now this. Feels

    My Misfits have arrived today! Any other Australians here who ordered them get theirs yet?

    I'm still waiting for mine. I suspect they're waiting for me at the post office. I've bought The Misfits dolls just so I can have the whole IT collection but Jem & The Holograms are my favorite band

    What does everyone think of the SDCC exclusive GnG Jem and Rio? I think they're lovely but Iam not interested in them.

    They look nice, but for the cost, I'll be skipping variants. The Hollywood Jem was an exception for because she launched the line. To be honest, I love all the ones I have (all so far) but I'm thinking I'll get the Stingers and then be done (unless they make Astral) and I might even skip Clash and Raya, if they make them.

    I would like to be able to get a GnG Jem, but there's no way I'm paying scalper prices. I've read some people saying that they don't think prices will be so crazy this year, but it seems to me that it will possibly be worse unless the production numbers are significantly increased from Hollywood Jem (which honestly is pretty likely I guess). GnG is the most iconic Jem variant and I would guess the most deluxe type release Integrity will end up making. I would think if there are people that want to have just one doll from this line, this would be a good one. Of course, I've seen even die hard Jem fans say that they weren't that impressed and thought they were going to pass, so who knows. And maybe it's just me, but I know a lot of people just need a Jem, period, (like me) and throwing a GnG Jem into a collection to round out your Holograms seems kinda weird to me. You can't have Fancy Pants Jem hanging out with It's Ok for Everyday Kimber. That's just....no. And speaking of things that are "just...no": GnG Rio.

    What about Jetta?! Skipping Clash is dubious, but skipping Jetta is unacceptable!

    The Hasbro SDCC exclusives are crazy. You have to be in line hours in advance just to get a ticket to come back to their booth later in the day to actually purchase the exclusives. The line moves really slow because they usually have 10-12 exclusives if not more. They have a handicap line which loads of people try to take advantage of. Sometimes exclusives will sell out on Thursday and they have no more for the rest of the convention. It is a real bear trying to secure their items. It makes me appreciate the Mattel preorder immensely.

    Me - 3 out of 10

    That sounds like a ringing endorsement.

    Its pretty neat, the added item they are giving with the doll is cool. But compared to the SDCC GnG JEM its lackluster

    I just hope it's not an original character as I decided not to join the club. A variant, I can live with.

    For me, if the SDCC exclusive is a 9/10, the W Club exclusive is 8/10. Pleasantly surprised by both.

    When will it be made public? Or are you even allowed to say that?

    I gotta say, I have no idea what it would be. It seems like it would have to be a variant, but I'm not sure what would fill that slot well. Having yet another Jem that's an exclusive would seem somewhat bizarre to me. I can't really think of another character that's already been released that would be a particularly great candidate for a variant. Maybe the unreleased '88 Pizzazz? I suppose it could be a character that only appeared in the cartoon like Eric, Techrat, Craig, or Jacqui, but I don't think that would go over well...

    I thought maybe someone like American Beauty Jem - it's a Jem variant again, but it's of a variant that was never released in the old line, IIRC. Could make sense for an exclusive - prized by the core collectors but not essential to more casual collectors.



    I just can't imagine it being a new character. And I'm not sure who else it'd be, unless it was a Glitter N' Gold variant of one of the other characters (they all had G N' G fashions in the cartoon, I think, but only Jem and Rio were made.)

    Yeah, you're probably right. Either that or Rockin' Romance. It just seems weird to me to have the titular character so chronically difficult to obtain.

    But for all I know, they've got a half dozen more Jems in the pipeline. /shrug
