First off let me warn you this is a pic heavy post!
O.M.G. I completely love this doll. She far surpassed what I was expecting and her facemold and screening is so soft and beeeeyoootiful! I haven’t peeked at Jerrica, Rio or my new Giselle yet, but the plan is to debox 1 doll a day for the next 4 days with Giselle on the final day. Group shots will be had at some point as I pull out my HJ Jem. Also someone asked for a group shot of the NF girls together, so I’ll shoot Giselle, the twins and Erin together as well. Lots to look forward to!
So let’s delve into Synergy! Some of you are totally not Jem fans, so here’s a little write-up courtesy of wiki so you know who her character is:
An extraordinarily sophisticated holographic computer designed to be the ultimate audio/visual entertainment synthesizer. Synergy was created by Emmett Benton, and is in many ways considered to be his life’s work. Synergy can generate holographic images that are extremely lifelike and synched to accompanying sound-effects; rendering them flawlessly convincing, despite the fact that they aren’t solid. Synergy’s artificial intelligence, appearance, and voice are all based on the likeness of Emmett’s late wife Jacqui. Synergy was intended to be a surrogate mentor, friend, and maternal figure to Jerrica and Kimber. She manifests herself physically as a hologram in the form of a light purple-skinned woman with dark purple hair and eyes, when she chooses to physically interact; and communicates with Jem remotely via a pair of star-shaped earrings.
And here is her original cartoon incarnation:
First let’s check out the fun packaging! It’s a fun shaped box – not a true rectangle because a portion is cut off, and then inside a panel hides the accessories in it’s own space.
And so now we move onto the doll! IT did such a great job capturing the look while making her gorgeous at the same time. Perfectly recreated the outfit and I love the sparkle they gave it when choosing the fabric.
The boots and gloves are great too. Actually the gloves are attached to the hands and are interchangeable to “normal” hands. The boots are a great shiny pink with purple trim and because IT is using the CI body, that means she can stand on her own! yay! I have to admit there is something to their big feet, LOL. Our other girls teeter on their tiny feet! And I had to take a shot of the classic symbol that represents Synergy.
She also comes with some little accessories. A gift box to Jerrica which opens and holds the Jem star earrings perfectly! So cute! Plus a master tape and some miniature screen shots that are accurate to the cartoon. (excuse the less than clear shots, I was too lazy to swap out my macro lens at that point, LOL)
And I wanted to do a closer shot of her eyes! I always wondered how they’d do her “blank” eyes like the cartoon without it looking really strange and I have to admit they nailed it! There’s a slight hint of a shadowy pupil in there but the rest is just silver and it came out beautifully!
And finally some additional shots for you to ogle… I love her facemold and cheekbones and that squarish jaw so so much!
And my favorite shot from the bunch…
