The last year of production for the sparkle blue Jem was 2004 I believe. You will not find any online retailers that have any new ones left in stock. However, one shows up for sale on www.jemsite.com or on online auction sites every couple of weeks. When they were discontinued, most retailers sold them off at $999 USD. However, in perfect condition these often go for $1500 because they are so sought after.

I have one, and I love it.

Everyone would like to have it. But my favourite JEM is still the Blue Floral pattern.

GAK are well known for not updating their inventory for many months at a time so the only way to check if they still sell those is to give them a call.
Rockers on Denmark street still have a 2002 model (lo-pro edge) on the wall selling for £1699 and considering the price I'd say it's a NOS.
