This week I'm obsessed with... Jem and the Hologram action figures!

You can tell you're getting old when companies start preying on your generation's nostalgia by coming out with high-priced merchandise for all your past favourite movies, music and of course, tv shows.

All of course because this is the point in our lives that we have the money to allow us to wallow in our childhood memories and buy expensive homages to it!

There was a lack of tv in my house growing up so I didn't catch the show in the mid 80's when it first ran but I have fond memories of coming home at lunch from university to eat my Kraft Dinner with no milk or butter (who can afford such luxuries in university?!) - but I didn't care because I had Jem, all those crazy Hologram girls and of course the Misfits!

Of course the truly outrageous thing about her this time might be the price...

The dolls will set you back $125 each and will be available November 17th at Holt Renfrew. They must be expecting lots of interest because there is a limit of 1 character per customer.


Jem, Synergy and Jerrica - I think they could have done better with Jerrica's outfit, she looks like a candy striper!
Rio - Jerrica's boyfriend who not only looks like a douche but looking back at it, kinda is one considering he didn't realize that Jerrica (who he dated) and Jem (who he lusted after) were the same person!

  2. I want these...but what is up with them being so skinny? My Jem had normal appendages and didn't look like she had an eating disorder.
