#160: Jem is my name!

Today on the Toy Power Podcast, we are joined by a special guest and fellow SA collector Damien. He’s a rare breed of collector who manages to keep his passion for one line and one line only: the 80’s classic Jem and the Holograms! It was a time of flashing earrings, shoulder pads and face-paint so Damien takes us through the brand from conception at Hasbro to production. What famous show (beyond on her own) was Jem attached too? Was she even called Jem to begin with? We love figures with multiple accessories, but Jem takes it to another level with a staggering amount of outfits in a dizzying amount of colours. But is it all about the fashion, or the music? Or the Keytar?? Learn about the 80s corporate espionage and subterfuge that was Jem vs Barbie – it was big big money, so much so, one former employee banked some serious coin: and it might not be who you think! Can you have a love-triangle with two people? Hey, it was the 80s… We also get to peek at some seriously rare product – stuff you will literally never see again! Like many other 80s brands, is there a big reboot in the works? Then it’s a quick round of Reading Watching Playing featuring Netflix, ABC Kids and a a book that reads to its author? Frank then ends the show with a special announcement that bodes well for the future of Toy Power…
