Unproduced Dolls [1988]

In 1988, Hasbro had a new range of Jem dolls and fashions planned but unfortunately they never went any further than the prototypes. There would have been two new Jem dolls and four new Holograms dolls (including two new band member). Hasbro stopped production of these dolls because of financial problems, profits on these dolls were down and Hasbro had to cut back on the amount of toy lines.
