||Differences from produced doll (if any)
Glitter 'n Gold Jem (with Rio) in the 1987 US Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue
and 2nd year catalogue poster appears to be a touched up version of the
Glitter 'n Gold box back photo (or perhaps the reverse is true) So all
of the above is true, plus:
# The eyeshadow is shown to be even darker! It no longer seems to be sparkly.
The doll(s) shown on the side panel of the Glitter 'n Gold Jem box (the
seated one of Jerrica is also seen on the 2nd year catalogue poster)
# Again, very dark eyeshadow and eyebrows compared to the produced doll.
# The starcaps are nearly red, very dark.
# The hairpick is shown to be shiny gold
# The sunglasses are not mirror-finish, ditto the
bracelets. The bracelets are also those skinny zig-zags that
never got made.
Glitter 'n Gold Jem models the Glitter 'n Gold Fashions (The same
photos are used for the 1987 US Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue, the 1987
France/UK Toy Fair Catalogue, the Second Year Jem Catalogue Poster and
the Second Year package art)
# Again, very dark eye makeup.

# Looks a lot more like the produced doll, make up is still on the dark side.

# Glitter 'n Gold Jem's hair is very strangely styled, but otherwise looks the same as the produced doll's.
# Eye make up is on the dark side
# Glitter 'n Gold Jerrica wears smaller gold bracelets that I've
never seen before, her hair is also quite lacquered down and unusual
looking to me.
# Various accessories are not shown but text states that they are included.
# Same doll is shown driving the Glitter 'n Gold Roadster.

||Glitter 'n Gold Jem on her box back
- Shows very dark/large
eyebrows (even the darkest eye-browed dolls I've seen aren't this
dark), and the eyeshadow appears to be glittery.
- She has pink star caps (some produced dolls had clear ones)
- the tights look to be a tighter weave, no zig-zag pattern is apparent on them.
- She's not wearing bracelets.
|Prototypes (from Hasbro employees, etc)
||There is a Glitter 'n Gold Jem commercial, which also shows her with dark make up.

- As usual the pink in the hair is much darker than it is on the doll,
the eye make up is fairly sedate though- more like the produced dolls.
- Shows skinny bracelets.

does not have a hairbow, the bodysuit design is different, the tights
are darker, the bracelets are shown to be cuff-style, the collar on her
bodysuit looks more like a necklace. I don't think she is ever
shown with the white Jerrica skirt or sandals on the cartoon. Her
hair is shown to be completely pink.
