Speculation

1986 "Mystery Man" Who is He/She Craig Phillips? What's Up with Jetta??//Jetta vs. Graphix!! Do The Stingers Fit In ?? Factory Sealed Bag Fashions

The pages is just speculation, it is not meant to be taken as fact. Some facts are used, but the facts used may not support the view point on this page. This page is just for fun, and may become obsolete as we found out more of what Hasbro/Sunbow was working on.

Update: And the reason Jetta was not on the box is because she was not available in all locations.

2017 Update: there is no way the two dolls were switched, Graphix was designed along with the 1988 Pizzazz doll, same designer. So she wasn't designed until early 1987 or at the earliest very late in 1986 -- after Jetta would have been in production.

What's Up with Jetta??//Jetta vs. Graphix!!

Jetta was the New Misfit for 1987. But ...
  • Jetta was not pictured on the back of the 1987 Misfit boxes ... not even her own.

    the back of the 1987 Misfit doll box ... No Jetta

  • Jetta is the only band member that does not have a stand that matches the rest of her band.
  • Jetta's cassette tape is black with white lettering, the other Misfit tapes are black with florescent green lettering.
  • Her copyright is ©1987 while most of the other 1987 dolls where copyright ©1986 ... only the Starlight Girls and Synergy are copyrighted ©1987.
  • As far as Stock Numbers it goes Clash #4207, Danse #4208, Video #4209, Raya #4210, then the Starlight Girls: Ashley, #4211, Krissie #4212, Banee #4213 , then finally Jetta #4214 ... which implies she was the very last doll to be added for 1987, or at least after the Starlight Girls.
  • She was not sold in as many countries as the rest of the New Holograms and Clash.
  • Jetta is not included in the commercial for the Video Madness(s). Clash is with the rest of the Misfits and Danse, Video and also Raya are with Jem.

    youtube.com thanks minceatron
  • The description from the 1987 Hasbro Toy catalog does not match with a saxophone player. "Clash jams JEM’s® concert with her distortion modulator while Jetta™ loves to zap the color out of JEM’s music videos!"

It seems as if Hasbro either decided on Jetta, or decided to being out another Misfit doll at the very last minute. Her catalog description does make scene if you think about the fact that she does not have any color to her make-up, hair, fashion, stand, and cassette tape. But, it also seem to imply that she was an artist, or in video production ... not a saxophone player.

I do have to say on Jetta's behalf ... Jetta and Raya where revealed to the show's head write at the same time. That is the only thing that suggests that Hasbro was developing Jetta long with the rest of the new items for 1987. But the original instrument for Jetta was going to be another guitar -- written in the script for Talent Search. The guitar was later changed to a saxophone before the cartoon was animated.

 
This is where me speculation begins ...
 
Update: While I have not discovered any information on when either Graphix or Jetta were created, alternative versions or anything else that would suggest that the two dolls were switched. In April 2011, I found out from a former Hasbro employee that Graphix’s instrument was a “Video Distorter.” It seems more than a little too coincidental that Jetta’s description in the 1987 Hasbro Toy Fair catalog is “Jetta’s loves to zap the color out of JEM’s music videos!”
 

What seems odd to me, Graphix was to come out in 1988 as a graphic artist. A graphic artist is not the same as a video production person, but much closer to it then a sax player. I have to wonder if Graphix was planned as the new Misfit for 1987, then Jetta came out instead.

  • If you look at her prototype picture, sent to Sunbow, Graphix produced with more quality and detail then the rest of the 1988 dolls in both make-up and hair. This makes me think she was much farther along in production then the rest of the 1988 dolls shown to Sunbow. At this point, even the dolls that where show in the Pre-Toy Fair Catalog do not not look as produced as Graphix.
  • Her stand is yellow, like the rest of the 1986/1987 Misfits ... Graphix did not have to be a Misfit stand, she also could have had a Stinger stand or could have had one of her own.
  • Graphix's outfit has a shirt with a high collar and matching tights, both white with a pattern, plus a skirt. It is basically the same idea as Raya's outfit except for Raya's jacket, belt and bow-tie. Also the red of Graphix's skirt would be the negative color to Raya's aque green skirt. Graphix seems more like a nemesis to Raya then Jetta is.

Could the Jetta doll fit into the new look of the Stingers or as be a graphic artist?

  • Jetta like the Stingers are mostly black and one other color.
  • Jetta's make-up looks more like paint painted on with a paint brush then the make-up.
    1st: the line has the same width from lower left to upper right.
    2nd: the edges look uneven, as if you where painting and pulled the brush off the wall without coming to a complete stop.

If it was a choose between Jetta and Graphix for the 1987 doll, maybe Hasbro was leaning more toward the Stingers. Jetta almost seems to be a predecessor to the Stingers ... compared to the rest of the dolls. Hasbro might have decided to release Jetta just to see how a black and white doll -- less Outrageous -- would sell or be excepted by the public.

One thing for sure Danse, Video, and Clash where worked into the show long before Jetta and Raya. Sunbow received information about Jetta and Raya from Hasbro at the same time. Jetta and Raya where introduced on the show in the same episode.

So, why if Jetta is not pictured on the Misfit box, is Raya pictured on the Holograms box? And why does Graphix seem almost produced in he prototype pictures?
