My friend and co worker brought this piece into work for me to check out wondering if I had any information on it. I'd never even seen one before and an online hunt also produced nothing. Does anybody know anything more about this? I was guessing that perhaps it was released as a non licensed bad guy for Marx's The Girl From Uncle Doll. Or maybe something before that came out? If any of you know anything about it at all let me know. Otherwise enjoy the pics of what seems to be a pretty unusual piece of spy figure history haha:

Face looks a lot like an original Barbie by Mattel from the 1960s. How tall is she?

That's an amazing find. I would almost think it was an April Fools posting if it wasn't August! WOW.

She is very similar to Barbie facially and roughly the same scale. I believe the box is dated as 1967 and the body markings seem like they are from the Marx Bonnie doll.

Before seeing it and just hearing the description I was wondering if it was some sort of sales mock up. It does appear to be a fully production piece thhough as far as I can tell. Marx toys are a bit out ot my knowlege base though, so I thought someone here would be likely to know something about it haha The racially diverse face masks are a really unusual element for sure.

Interesting find, she doesn't use the same body as The Girl from UNCLE, which looks solid and has articulated joints and moulded / painted hair.

I suggest an e-mail to The Vintage Toy Room, they publish the Marx encylopedia, but they don't mention Copperhead on their site.
