*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 Winning Is Everything (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 -has a mylar diamond on the stomach, and it's missing the leg scarf.  Otherwise looks pretty much like the produced one.
Looks a bit darker blue than the produced fashion; has a silver mylar diamond on the stomach, and it's missing the leg scarf.

First Year Package Art illustration looks pretty darn close to the produced fashion.
Illustrations; Hasbro Promotional art
It was featured on the cartoon. It's significantly darker blue than the produced fashion. The hat is also shown to be shiny/sparkly, there are lots of bracelets, a different design on the stomach, and the shoes are navy, not pink! I like Pizzazz's "Jemstar" earrings too!
