Jem and the Holograms - Techrat

Here is my de-boxing of Jem and the Holograms Techrat, and my review. 
First let me say that I never , ever watched the cartoon, in the 80's of Jem and the Holograms, nor collected the items- I was a teenager getting ready for college at that time. I still find the characters slightly funny and fun, but am more in tune with the Katy Keene and Archie, comic book characters than Jem & the Holograms. But Techrat was so cool I just could not pass up on him. 



First off, he comes in one of the over the top boxes with a domed type Jem and the Holograms box, sorry I didn't get better pics. His outfit is a pair of black belted pants, orange shirt with stand up color, definitely 80's, blue sweater vest, red satin coat, belted, and white scarf, black socks, and black high top sneakers. Hint: Those sneakers are killer to get on- I did not put my socks on because I was afraid they would stain his feet and were impossible to put on with the socks too. He also comes with another head and the quick switch feature, as well as his stand and his computer and various stickers for the screen and keyboard. This doll really, really rocks as far as accessories. Get another body and you have two hommes in one. 











I love his outfit and after all the problems to get those shoes on, it isn't coming off anytime soon! Those sneakers were a problem to get on and don't stay tied very well. I love his weird hairstyle and it makes him look like Count Dracula's weird son. lol. 

Here are some photos of him kicking back...





 Hope you enjoyed the pics!

Congrats on getting Techrat! Was he a 2014 club exclusive? I wasn't a member then and I don't remember him being offered in 2015. His clothes are really nice and I do like his hair.

Love it!! He is so cool too and like you, I didn't follow the cartoon; I was raising babies. LOL
FYI...I have pinned a few of your pics to mr Pinterest page "Diorama Lovers Dream"
Keep up the great work!

thank you both! Phyllis, Techrat was a 2014 exclusive. Bnova, I have never been a Jem and the HOlograms fan- the hair is too wild, the weird makeup on the faces, but some of the dolls are really great. I still have the Countess who everyone says looks like Paris Hilton which simply makes me shudder. I have never deboxed her. When you join the W club you always get a Jem exclusive somewhere along the way and I don't think we have had a Jem exclusive doll yet, for 2015. I would have to go back into my files. Our 2nd exclusive has been unveiled for this year just yesterday. Glad you pinned some pics of him too!

He is magnificently 1980s! And he looks very happy with his computer and his sneakers.

I LOVE the Declan sculpt, I believe the long haired head would look gorgeous with a ponytail....
