G.I. Joe, Transformers, and Jem and the Holograms were all Sunbow cartoons. Some shared voice actors and company staff. Shared music. There's even one character that graces all 3 cartoon series ... Hector Ramirez, a news reporter in all 3 series: http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Hector_Ramirez_(G1)

Some of the Jem characters were used as crowd fillers in Transformers "B.O.T."

Heck, there's a poster of Jem that even makes a surprise appearance in Masterforce!

What's that thing attached to her crotch? Is HTS trying to compete with Amiami? Will Counterpunch be buying Jem for his girlie fig collection? Enquiring minds want to know...

I didnt know they were in B.O.T. Im going to have to pop in the DVD. I guess that puts Jem in the "G1 cameo appearance" catagory with Battle Beasts and an aging Cobra Commander.


And that crotch pincher looks pretty painful...

And, according to Vector Prime in the AllSpark Almanac II book, the Jem cartoon (along with G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, C.O.P.S., and Inhumanoids) is canon to the American G1 cartoon continuity. :-B

Just curious, has Jem been ongoing or is this one of those blast-from-the-past deals?

Blast from the past. I think this is the first new Jem product, aside from the DVDs, in over two decades.

The stand is the traditional Integrity toy stand that's used with countless high end fashion dolls. This is the first of a new line by integrity.

Wow. Jem. I remember when my sister used to dress up like her. Strange times, the '80's.

I will admit that I watched every episode of Jem on the Hub. It's not that piss of a show.

Loving the interesting new direction this Transformers fansite is taking with front page news about Jem...!! ;)
Maybe Michael Bay should include her and the Holograms in the new movie!
Imagine the Human Alliance figure they could throw up with that one!?

At the very least I've got to get Terrocon Cliffjumper. I was going to get the Takara version, but this looks way better in my opinion. I'll make an attempt at getting Bruticus, but it won't bother me too much if I can't get this version.

Also, I find it funny just how careful they are to not use Derpy's name in that press release. I guess after Derpygate they just decided to not ever use her name again.

I was contemplating getting the helicarrier but it's really just a plank with guns. Jem is a steal $125 since most integrity fashion dolls go for $175+

Wait, Jem is $125? WTF? And we were bitching about Bruticus' price?

I don't really get the purpose of the helicarrier. It's a floating platform for superheroes that can fly? Do their legs or arms get tired from flying and they need to stop and rest mid-air?

Yeah but I am not going to give my 8 year old a $150 doll to play with.. I see what she does with the dolls she has already. My wife or older daughter could appreciate it though.

Not sure if you saw a little film called The Avengers. It wasn't wildly successful or promoted much, so I'd understand. In it, there's a whole team of...wait for it...superheroes, right? And 2 of them can fly. Okay, a couple of them can fly planes, but no-one ever gets tired flapping their arms whilst flying a plane in films.

Oh yeah, they're definitely not toys.

Maria Hill is not Black Widow.

And I'm sorry but why has this been front paged? Seibertron said he wanted the site to get back to focusing on official Transformers products, which is fair enough. But how do official JEM and Avengers products fall into that catagory? Rather double standards don't you think? Or is this actually a Hasbro fansite?

I'm guessing he thought that those of us who have interest in the other SDCC stuff would appreciate it. I don't happen to be one of those people, but if I were, I'd certainly appreciate the gesture. But that's just my take, I wouldn't worry about it so much. :)

This is, like, the one and only time Jem, Avengers, and the like are ever going to be anywhere near the front page, and they're all tied to the same convention. It's not like Seibertron is suddenly reporting every little story even remotely relevant to anything Hasbro.

Well the Jem universe and the Transfomers universe are already crossed over. http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Jem

It's at least as Transformers related as Marvel Crossovers or Mosaics, let alone 3rd party stuff. It's not like every single Jem release (if there is more than this one) would be covered here, but this is something of a special occasion.

I would never have known Jem had a link to transformers. It is interesting to know and I do like oddball G1 triva. But front paging it this month was kind of bad timing.
