My Little Pony

Hasbro - My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic - DJ Pon-3 - Comic-Con 2013 - SDCC ExclusivesA fan favorite who first appeared in the first season of Friendship is Magic on the Hub Network, DJ Pon-3 ($49.99) makes her debut with a Comic-Con exclusive — and a shiny one at that. In addition to a musical note as her “cutie mark,” her sunglasses and unicorn horn are embellished with Swarovski crystal elements that tie into the year’s theme of the Crystal Empire.

Even DJ Pon-3‘s special packaging lights up, says Hasbro’s Donna Tobin, senior vice president, global brand marketing for My Little Pony. “Everything about her offering really enhances her character.”

Hasbro hosts a panel at Comic-Con featuring voice talent from the show, previews a fall line of toys at its booth and offers a poll where fans can elect their favorite pony from the “mane six” — Twilight Sparkle, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Rainbow Dash and Applejack — and record testimonials at a video booth before the vote goes live at Hubworld.com/vote4ponies on July 22.+++

Jem and the Holograms

Hasbro - Jem and the Holograms - Glitter-n-Gold - Comic-Con 2013 - SDCC ExclusivesJem, the pink-haired ’80s cartoon rocker, made a “truly outrageous” return to pop culture last summer at Comic-Con with a high-end collectible figure from Hasbro and Integrity Toys. She sold out quickly, so Jem’s coming back glammed out with a special “Glitter N’ Gold” figure ($140) that’s a nod to a version from her original era. This time, though, she comes with more detail, a better and more realistic sculpt, and accessories including an extra dress and a record trophy.

Marvel Legends

Hasbro - Marvel Legends - Comic-Con 2013 - SDCC Exclusives - Luke Cage - Crossbones - Ghost - Moonstone - Judith ChambersHasbro - Marvel Legends - Comic-Con 2013 - SDCC Exclusives - Box - Packaging - Luke Cage - Crossbones - Ghost - Moonstone - Judith ChambersThe Hasbro team was excited by the idea of doing a Thunderbolts set ($89.99) of 6-inch figures inspired by the comic-book art of Kev Walker and based on the Marvel team of superpowered anti-heroes — Avengers member Luke Cage and the reformed super-criminals Crossbones, Ghost, Moonstone and Judith Chambers — that work for the government.

G.I. Joe/Transformers

Hasbro - G.I. Joe - Transformers - Box - Packaging - Baroness - Ravage - Snake Eyes - Autobot Blaster - Skystriker - Jetfire - Vamp - Hound - Bludgeon Samurai RobotThis year’s G.I. Joe/Transformers exclusive ($99.99) is the third and final installment in a special series of annual mash-ups.

Paying homage to a G.I. Joe/Transformers comic-book miniseries in the ’80s, the set includes a Skystriker in the colors of the Autobot Jetfire and a G.I. Joe V.A.M.P. vehicle retooled to reflect Hound, a cult favorite whose original automobile form was that of an Army Jeep.

To pair with the vehicles, the set stars the Cobra femme fatale Baroness with the Decepticon character Ravage, G.I. Joe ninja Snake Eyes with an Autobot logo on his outfit, the Autobot Blaster in his boom-box form and his tapes, and a robotic samurai warrior with a skeleton head in the colors of the Decepticon Bludgeon.

Integrity Toys in collaboration with Hasbro Announce JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS Collectible Fashion Dolls

First of the High-End Collectible Fashion Doll Line Based on the 1980s Animated Series Available at the 2012 Comic-Con International in San Diego

Integrity Toys, Inc., under license from Hasbro, Inc., today announced a brand-new series of high-end collectible fashion dolls based on the 1980’s ground breaking animated series JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS, launching at 2012 Comic-Con International in San Diego.

Inspired by the “TRULY OUTRAGEOUS” characters created by Hasbro over two decades ago and cherished by fans and collectors alike ever since, this nostalgic retro doll line is designed to pay homage to both the animated series and its original companion doll line, originally marketed from 1985 to 1987. Created for fans by fans of the rock ‘n shock pink haired pop-culture icon and her outrageous world, this classic commemorative line will feature the high-end details, quality accessories and ultra-limited edition sizes that fans of Integrity Toys have come to appreciate through the years.

This first doll in this exciting commemorative collection will be JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS Special Edition Doll: HOLLYWOOD JEM, one of the most requested animated-based looks. This doll will be available for purchase at the HasbroToyShop booth #3329 during Comic-Con International in San Diego at an approximate retail price of $125 and following the convention, at www.HasbroToyShop.com.

The dolls, created by noted collectible manufacturer Integrity Toys, will mark the debut of a newly sculpted fully articulated body and likeness of the rock star wearing a high-end costume, delivered in collector grade packaging. Future additions to the line will be announced in the months following Comic-Con International in San Diego via a dedicated web page located at http://integritytoys.com/jemandtheholograms, which has been created to bring fans all the latest information about the Classic JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS collectible line moving forward.

“As children of the 80’s ourselves, working on this project with the Hasbro team was a dream come true for our entire team. JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS has been a major influence for us,” says Alain Tremblay, marketing director of Integrity Toys, Inc.

“We wanted to remain true to the spirit of the original doll line, while paying homage to the animated series, which is something that we as JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS fans always wanted through the years,” says Vaughn Sawyers, Integrity’s head designer.

JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS made a noted return on television in 2011 airing on The HUB TV Network in the U.S., followed by the much anticipated release of a sleek DVD box set last fall that features all 65 episodes of the original animated series. “We wanted to pay homage to the characters and offer collectible dolls to fans that would showcase the essence of their favorite characters. We admire the high quality dolls produced by Integrity Toys, so this relationship made perfect sense,” says Bryony Bouyer, Senior Vice President, Global Franchise Development for Hasbro.
