The 2014 SDCC doll is Rockin' Romance Jem with Retro Packaging. A lot of fans are disappointed that RRJ isn’t as “deluxe” as the previous two dolls. I can understand that, but I’m impressed with the retro packaging -- I absolutely love it. I also think this Jem has the must beautiful make-up in the IT collection, and I’m really impressed with the fashion. I have never been a big fan of the 1988 Hasbro Rockin’ Romance dolls because the dress was a light pink (packaged version) and ill-fitting, but these dress is amazing. It has the look and feel of the Sunbow version of this doll.
Another issue people have is that the original was going to be a cheaper doll like Rock’n Curl Jem. But Rock’n Curl Jem’s dress was designed by Girls Soft to be a cheap dress for a cheap doll. Rockin’ Romance Jem was designed by Girls Hard to be a typical “stage fashion” doll -- it just happens that doll had less accessories than the previous 1987 Flash’n Sizzle Jem/Jerrica and 1986 Jem/Jerrica. As a Jem only doll, I don’t feel like the doll or dress was intended to be of lesser quality than of the other dolls planned for the 1988 line.
A small issue with the dolls is mold, it was manufactured during the rainy season in Asia. So she has some mold issues, mine only had very little mold, which brushed off by hand. So I brushed it off and then placed the doll in front of a fan to brush everywhere -- to knock off anything I didn’t see. I’m going to see how that works, to avoid using any harsh chemicals or alcohol based produces. Since she’s now in a dry, mostly temperature/humidity controlled, environment there shouldn’t be a recurrence.
