Last year, during the convention if I remember correctly, Integrity Toys announced that 2017 would be the last year for their JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS™ collection. So the company has been working with Hasbro to release some of the most requested collectibles from the poll that IT ran in the Club last year. The first one is an obscure character that isn't instantly appelaing as a doll release (no matter how important or not he was in the series): Zipper, Erich Raymond's henchman.
The doll is being offered in not one, but two hair color variations, addressing the concern that fans have always had about him: should he be made with blond or jet black hair since he was seen with both hair colors in the show. He's not released as a quickswitch doll (which would have been the obvious solution) but as two nearly identical dolls, different only in their hair colour. Which means double the money if you want both. Which is a boon for the company but a bummer for fans.
W Club members get a priority opportunity to buy both versions before the general public. Each member will be allowed to purchase these figures starting today, while non-members will be able to get any remaining dolls from Monday, March 20th, noon ET, through IT Direct.

Seen here in doll form for the very first time, Zipper is a 12.5-inch fully articulated fashion figure with a combination of rooted and flocked hair. Available in either blond (to match his earlier look in the TV series) or jet black hair color versions (matching the look he had for rest of the duration of the show), he comes dressed in his signature biker look composed a faux-leather jacket embroidered with his name on the back, jeans, t-shirt and boots. Zipper also comes complete with his thief outfit, which consists of a track suit with a hoodie and something that looks like a rope, plus a pair of extra hands. I wonder why his body is classified as FR Homme 1.0 when he has interchangeable hands, ergo it should be 1.5. A doll stand and a certificate of authenticity are also included with each version of the figure. THE BLOND AND JET BLACK VERSIONS OF THIS FIGURE ARE SOLD SEPARATELY. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only.
