Doll Name Clash
Stock # (US) #4207
Hasbro package contents listing 12 1/2" doll with stage fashion, pretend distortion modulator and headset, two bracelets, hairpick, pumps, cassette tape and figure stand.
Comments/Trivia The doll and the cartoon character have very little to do with each other; the doll had a "distortion modulator" (sounds like a Techrat invention!) that would jam Synergy's signals. The cartoon character was more of a groupie/spy character. 
Produced VariantsSo far, I know of dolls marked on their backs with one of the following places of manufacture, and there are slight variations among them:
  • China 
  • No Location*
*I only know of one no location, but every other Clash I've seen has had Made In China markings. To learn more about these body types and slight differences, please see the body variations page.

12 1/2" doll: Caucasian doll with plum hair. If you look closely you can see pink interspersed throughout her hair, in some dolls the pink ratio is a lot higher than others. The hair is cut short in the front and it's long in the back, not quite the rat-tail from the cartoon but it is two different lengths. 
  • She can be found with the back of her head being painted, but bald, with no punch holes as opposed to the scalp paint only being under where the hair has been rooted. (Jetta also has this variation)
  • Her hair length and ratio of purple to pink can vary a lot - see a photo of three different Clash hair lengths. 
  • Her skintone can also vary. The one on the left with short hair is considerably paler than the one on the right with extra long hair. See a photo
  • JettaClash & Danse share the same face mold, which in turn looks like it was adapted from the Erica face mold from Kenner's Darci doll line. 

stage fashion: Made up of 4 pieces itemized below.
stage fashion part 1, dress: Sleeveless mini, black base with metallic threads woven in, mostly green with yellow and pink stripes. Velcros in the back.
stage fashion part 2, belt: thick foil-type material, hot pink, glittery blue sticker "buckle", velcros in front.
stage fashion part 3, jacket: chartreuse faux-fur bolero with an aqua blue lamé collar. 
  • There is a variation, where the inner-right side of the lamé collar is a darker, more green aqua colour, possibly factory error as I've only heard of one so far! (Photo)
stage fashion part 4, tights: hot pink, elasticized waist with a zig-zag silver metallic pattern. 
  • Rock N' Curl Jem's tights are similar, but noticeably a brighter pink compared to Clash's.  The size difference may just be related to stretching. (Compare)

pretend distortion modulator: (and I expected a REAL distortion modulator!) pink jaggedy plastic thing with a sticker decal on front. 
  • The strap colour can range in intensity from yellow. There is also a green one. 

and headset: Fluorescent yellow.   
  • Mine (shown) is a pale pastel yellow, but looks as though it may have discoloured/faded (the colouring is a bit mottled).  I'm not sure if having it in her hair does this. 

two bracelets: Red to pink coloured metallic, zig-zag shaped.   
hairpick: fuchsia.

Pumps: One of many shades of pink, scalloped shoes. 
  • Distinguishable by its thick edges, and darker colour. For more on how to tell these shoes apart from similar Jem shoes, please visit the Jem shoe guide. 
Cassette: Same colour scheme as the first year Misfits tapes, dated 1986. Long Jem theme, no instruments on vocal track for the instrumental side. Side A "Clash- "JEM theme", "I Am A Giant:, "You Oughta See The View From Here" 
Side B "Clash- Instrumental"
figure stand: fluorescent yellow, milkier than the first year Misfit stands. 

Box, liner and inserts not previously noted in Hasbro's box contents above. *not all fashions came with the same posters and inserts, this is a listing of what I got personally with the doll listed on this page.
Box: 2nd Year diagonal Misfits box, US. 
Box Liner: burgundy (see more on Box Liners)

Packaging Variants: A listing of the packaging that Clash can be found in, that I know of, so far! You may also find it interesting to find out what "H-22", "H-32", and "H-44" means. Anything in Italics I haven't actually seen but have good reason to believe exists. If you have any photos or information/corrections to share, I'd love to hear about it!

Source Differences from produced doll (if any)
1987 US Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue, (same photo appears on the 2nd year catalogue poster)
  • The graphic on her distortion modulator is different, it has a different cord (green satin)
  • The hair still looks more asymmetrical than the produced dolls' but not quite as crazy as the quarterly media guide photo. 
  • Her eye make up is also a bit darker, but not quite as dark as that shown on the box back, the quarterly media guide. 
Video Madness Welcome To The Jungle front of box photograph
  • asymmetrical hairstyle
  • She is wearing thinner, non-foil bracelets. 
  • Make up (especially the eyebrows) appears much dark
  • Tights look thicker/less zig-zaggy patterned than her produced ones.

Illustrations: Cartoon  Clash most closely resembles "The New Clash", which was a model sheet revision used in the Glitter and Gold episode. The make-up is mirrored in some scenes. Most notably the legs are bare on the cartoon; the doll wore pink tights. As far as I know, Clash is never shown on the cartoon with her distortion modulator and/or headphones. The bracelets on the cartoon are shown to have "jingles" in them; the doll merely got pink zig zag bracelets. The doll did not have earrings. There is no buckle shown on the cartoon version of the belt. 
Illustrations: Clash early model sheet Where to begin - well, her jacket is sort of the same, otherwise she is nearly unrecognizable. Thanks to Walter for sharing this surprising find!

Integrity Toys dollHasbro Clash has long purple hair. The Integrity doll came with three separate heads (!) the closest to the Hasbro version being the purple haired head. It has slightly shorter purple hair, but also has a rat tail; it is curly and the bangs are not quite as spiked. The make up on the Hasbro doll is much paler and is generally speaking "flipped" from the way it is normally shown on the cartoon and on the IT doll. The IT doll doesn't have a distortion modulator or headphones. The IT doll has the bracelet cymbals that the character wore on the cartoon -the Hasbro doll only has pink zig-zag plastic bracelets. The jacket is fairly similar, as is the dress shape but the metallic threads running through the Hasbro version are gone and the shimmer is reproduced by microsequins instead. The Hasbro doll has much darker and sparklier tights and her shoes are pink. The belt on the IT doll looks much more like the first iteration of Clash - but the Hasbro belt looks somewhat more like the "New Clash" design. Hasbro Clash doll doesn't have earrings.
