Comments/Trivia -Like Raya, Synergy seems to only come on the "knobby wrist"-style body. 
-She is one of the rarest dolls to find, especially with her drum set.
Produced Variants So far, I know of dolls marked on their backs with one of the following places of manufacture, and there are slight variations among them:

12 1/2" doll; Bubble gum pink wavy long hair, Hispanic skin tone. 
  • Her hair is really two colours mixed together, a bubble gum pink and a slightly lighter/yellower pink.  
  • She has really sparse eyebrows (just an editorial note ;)
  • Shares her face mold with Pizzazz.

stage fashion (shirt); White thick cotton with a high collar, floral print, rolled up sleeves.  It velcros completely open in the back, a mint lamé bow tie is attached at the neck. 

stage fashion (belt); made of clear yellow plastic with silver glitter glued on at the back.  The belt "buckle" is a sewn on square of hot pink lamé (matches vest). Velcro fastener.
-These belts have a glittery adhesive on them that sometimes "melts" and gets goo all over the doll's clothes, so use them with caution!

stage fashion (skirt); turquoise lamé (matches bow tie) velcros in the back, slit on the side.

stage fashion (vest); lamé, mostly hot pink with turquoise trim around arms and around waist.  The collars are made of hot pink stretch sparkle fabric, the same material as Danse's pants. 
stage fashion (tights); white stretch tights with floral pattern (similar to that on her shirt). Elasticized waist.
stage fashion (earrings); Gold plastic hoops.
  • I have been told of a Canadian version with fluorescent yellow hoops instead of gold.

drums; Asymmetrical pair of hexagons, attach to a plastic pole that in turn fits into her figure stand base.

2 drumsticks; hot pink plastic.

pumps; Fluorescent yellow (slightly transparent) scalloped-Edged Pumps. 
hairpick: Bright fluorescent yellow. 
  • I haven't seen this colour with any other doll.

cassette tape; White with pink letters.  Says "Raya- JEM Theme, "Love Unites Us," "There's a Melody Playin'"
figure stand; Raya's drums are basically useless without this stand which is slightly longer and has a hole in the front.  It is slightly less clear than the first year stands.

Packaging Variants: A listing of the packaging that Raya 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!

1987 US Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue   # Has fluorescent yellow earrings
  # Belt doesn't look stitched and is much more densely packed with sparkles

1987 France/UK Toy Fair Catalogue (French Shown) # Has fluorescent yellow earrings, belt doesn't look stitched and is much more densely packed with sparkles
  # The drums (stand especially) are different, the base of the stand looks like a Jem mic stand base.
Raya on the back of the 2nd year hologram boxes (same photo appears on the 2nd year catalogue poster)
# Like the other photos, has fluorescent yellow earrings, belt is unstitched and a different texture, and her stand is not holding up the drums (They appear to be glued to the floor)
