*I don't own all of these fashions NRFB so I can't say which, if any posters and inserts originally came with it.  Bold listings are those I have used to create this ID page.  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!

Other images of Truly Outrageous (generally unproduced/prototypes/promotional figures) Differences from produced fashion (if any)
The photo used in both the first year Jem catalogue poster and the 1986 Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue -looks accurate enough, I don't see the pocket lines but it is black and hard to tell.
A photo is used in the 1986 German Leaflet (same photo appears in the 1986 Belgium catalogue-definitely seems to be no pocket lines, the collar is a bit higher.
The following sources all use the same photograph
  • 1987 US Hasbro Toy Fair catalogue
  • 2nd year catalogue poster
  • 1987 Rio Fashion card photograph
-looks very much like the produced outfit.
This outfit is shown on the Show Me the Way Video Madness Box front image (same photo used  in the 1987 US Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue Video Madness section) & the Show Me the Way Video Madness Box back image (same image is used on the Second Year Jem Catalogue Poster) -the lapels look shinier than the produced outfit's, I'm not sure but there appear to be no pockets either.
1st Year package illustration (see left) -makes it look kinda shiny, not velvety.
It did appear on the cartoon. The dickie is shown to be purple with a purple bow tie, looks like the jacket pockets were omitted.
