Doll Name Stormer
Stock # (US) #4205/#4010 Asst. 
Hasbro package contents listing 12 1/2" doll with stage fashion, musical instrument, pumps, hairpick, cassette tape, two bracelets and figure stand. 
  • Stormer was released both years, the packaging and guitar being the main differences between the two. 
  • 2nd year Misfits seem to be limited to ones marked "Made in China" - BUT, not all Made In China Stormers are 2nd year dolls. 
  • She had been named Roxy and Rue at various points in development. 
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 
  • Hong Kong 
  • No Location
  • No markings at all (Juguetes Con Vida, made in Mexico)
  • Made in Spain
*doll shown in this guide is Hong Kong made, but the box information and outfit are Chinese. 
To learn more about these body types and slight differences, please see the body variations page.

12 1/2" doll; Caucasian doll with long curly dark blue hair. 

stage fashion (one-shouldered tank top); a plum spandex trimmed with a wavy-hemmed velveteen zebra print. Sewn to her shirt are four black mylar "claws" and a small square silver mylar sticker (like those on Roxy's belt) goes on her waist. It velcros up the side. 
  • These claws are also very easily damaged and are often found broken off or missing completely. The sticker as well, is just a very thin sticker, and is almost never found on a loose Stormer. 
  • Pizzazz's dress uses these fabrics as well. 

stage fashion (skirt); Elasticized-waist black satin-like mini with a slit up the front. 
  • Stormer's skirt can be different, the stitching is different, & some are stretchy & some not. & some are longer & shorter, & some have a variation of slits. This could be related to factory/edition differences (China or Hong Kong)

stage fashion (tights);  Black closed-weave fishnet tights. 

stage fashion (flower); Plastic hair flower. 
  • difficult to find these on loose dolls. 

musical instrumentYellow 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. 
  • This unique body design is copied from a real guitar, the short-lived (1983-1986) Roland G-707, which combined aspects of an electric guitar and synthesizer.  Very '80's!  Incidentally, the Stormer doll is usually shown holding the guitar upside down. The "handle" is meant to be on the top, not the bottom. 
  • Mexican Stormer came with a greener version of the 2nd edition guitar. 

pumps: straight cut dark red-violet pumps, came with my H-22/China-made 1st edition doll.
  • H32 marked dolls come with yellow shoes (specifically French and Dutch dolls have had them, possibly other versions and editions too)

cassette tape; Black with green lettering on the label. Titled "Stormer"- comes with the songs "Jem Theme," "Winning is Everything", "Music Is Magic."

hairpick; Dark Pink
two bracelets; gold spiked "Misfit" bracelets.  Pizzazz, Stormer and Roxy (first and second editions) came with these.

figure stand; First edition stand is clear fluorescent yellow (top). The first editions of Pizzazz, Stormer and Roxy each came with one. Second Edition stand is milkier. Clash and the second editions of Pizzazz, Stormer and Roxy each came with one. 
  • One 2nd edition Stormer with the lace tights came with a first edition stand.

Packaging Variants: A listing of the packaging that Stormer 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!

  • No flower
  • Lips are darker (look red)
  • No claws on shirt (can't tell if the diamond sticker is there or not)
  • Only wearing one bracelet
1987 US Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue Looks pretty much how the produced doll looks, I can't see any obvious differences.
1987 France/UK Toy Fair Catalogue (French Shown) She is wearing yellow shoes, her hair looks like the curlier variation.
Stormer in Topolino Magazine  Issue 1602, August 10, 1986 (the very first Jem ad that ran)
The Misfits in Topolino Magazine Issue 1606, September 7, 1986 Missing her hair flower.
1986 German leaflet The decal is missing from her guitar
Her hair flower is white!
Lip colour looks a bit darker.
Very early prototype of Stormer (originally named Roxy). From Moggygoddess' photos.
  • Completely different doll style, outfit and make up has various obvious differences. 
  • More closely resembles Stormer's first incarnation on the cartoon, as this was a photo that Sunbow would have used as a source. 
Youtube Video links, same prototype doll seems to be in the following:
She is shown with a white hair flower, the zebra print on her top looks more sparse, has the silver sticker on her skirt, only has one bracelet.
