Hasbro package contents listing

Comments/Trivia
  • Roxy was released both years, the packaging and guitar being the main differences between the two.  The 2nd edition box omitted the reference to her bracelets in her contents listing; she came with them anyway.
  • 2nd year Misfits seem to be limited to ones marked "Made in China" - BUT, not all Made In China Roxys are 2nd year dolls.
  • Like Stormer, she was named Rue for a short period of time.
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:
  • China (the doll & fashion on this page are of this type)
  • Hong Kong
  • No Location
  • No markings at all (Juguetes Con Vida, made in Mexico)
  • Made in Spain
To learn more about these body types and slight differences, please see the body variations page.

12 1/2" doll; Caucasian with long white hair with spiky bangs.
  • Roxy, Kimber and Video share the same face mold, which in turn looks like it was adapted from the Dana face mold, from Kenner's Darci doll line.
  • Hair texture and make-up varies, go to the Misfits doll comparison page for more information on that.

stage fashion (shirt);  One-sleeved sheer royal purple.  
  • Can come with shiny eyelash fringe (shown left) or looped cotton threads, the latter seems to be less common.  Both my first and second year (China made) Roxy dolls came with the eyelash fringe.  It could be the cotton version is from Hong Kong dolls.

stage fashion (belt); flexible yellow vinyl, three silver mylar diamond stickers attached.  These stickers were also used on Stormer's shirt.
  • Mexican Roxy's belt did not have the stickers.  But don't assume if your belt has no stickers it's from a Mexican doll- they are easily pulled off.
  • There seems to be a difference between the H-32 and H-22 dolls, in that the H-32 belt is smaller. I've seen the same pattern of stickers on a few other H-32 dolls, but I'm not sure if this was actually mandated by the factory. 

stage fashion (pants); silver lamé with multicoloured shapes pattern, slits on the sides of the "ankles," velcro closure in back.
  • There are many variations of the pattern of these pants; here are three side by side. My first edition Roxy came with the lighter "spray paint" patterned pants -no slits up the sides, slightly coarser lamé; the darker pair on the far right came on a 2nd edition Canadian doll, they also have slits on the sides. 
  • There is also a variant where the waist is elasticized
  • Mexican Roxy's pants are white pleather (not hard to confuse with the usual Roxy pants!)
  • There are many knock-off Jem clothes and other doll outfits out there using this fabric, it seems to have been pretty freely available back in the '80's.


musical instrument;  Plum bass guitar with a gold cord.  First edition doll (top) has an opaque body with a glittery sticker.  Second edition (bottom) has is translucent with sparkles in the plastic.
  • Mexican Roxy's guitar is much darker than both of these.
  • It looks like it's based on the Ibanez Destroyer II guitar.



pumps: Butter yellow straight cuts for 1st edition Roxy (top) and fluorescent yellow for 2nd edition Roxy (bottom). H32-marked Roxy's ("ball wrist" or "Euro" Roxy dolls came with a magenta colour shoe (middle). 


hairpick; My first edition Roxy came with the one on top, second the slightly darker one below.

cassette tape; Black with green lettering on the label.  Titled "Roxy - "Jem Theme," "Click/Clash", "Takin' It All."  Dated 1985. (Both 1st and 2nd edition versions.
bracelets; gold spiked "Misfit" bracelets. PizzazzStormer and Roxy (first and second editions) each came with a pair of these.

figure stand; First edition stand is clear fluorescent yellow (top).  The first editions of PizzazzStormer and Roxy each came with one.  Second Edition stand is milkier.  Clash and the second editions of PizzazzStormer and Roxy each came with one.

Packaging Variants: A listing of the packaging that Roxy 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!

Very early prototype of Roxy (originally named Rue).  From Moggygoddess' photos.
  • Completely different doll style, outfit has various obvious differences but hair and make up are largely the same as that of the produced dolls'.
  • More closely resembles Roxy's first incarnation on the cartoon, as this was a photo that Sunbow would have used as a source.
