*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 Outta My Way (generally unproduced/prototypes/promotional figures) Differences from produced fashion (if any)
first year Jem catalogue poster and the 1986 Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue (same photo) doesn't have a hairbow or socks; the shoes are shown to be royal purple straight edged pumps.

1986 German Leaflet (same photo appears in the 1986 Belgium catalogue)is radically different, the dress itself being mostly white with a sparse floral pattern, the tights look like a paler yellow, the hairbow also has a lot of white in it.  The shoes are either absent or appear to be straight cut pumps.
