WONDER WOMAN: 12" QUEEN HIPPOLYTE MEGO DOLL - 1976
released by Mego Corp., item #73500/5

"All Hail the Amazing Amazon! Wonder Woman's Super Mom QUEEN HIPPOLYTE" This is the 12.5" doll version of Queen Hippolyte, very loosely based on the likeness of actress Cloris Leachman. The skin was a natural tone, with blond rooted hair. The hair was kept in place by a thin clear cellophane band.

The doll wore a white nearly see-through sleeveless dress with low-cut neckline and green trim on the bodice. A long green cape with a white stripe on the outside bottom was attached to the shoulders of the dress by two brass buckles. The doll also wore a pair of white open-toed high-heel shoes. Packed in the box was a white plastic doll stand with two ankle-gripping columns.

The box noted 1976 DC Comics Inc.

Package measurements were 14" tall by 12" wide, with a 6" wide box to contain the figure and outfit. The box opened at top and bottom. The package flap included three comic-style pictures of Wonder Woman (by Dick Giordano), as well as a photo of Lynda Carter in her 1942 outfit, with hands on her hips. Oddly, she was only wearing one bracelet!

The package back features photos of the 12" doll assortment, with Wonder Woman and Diana Prince in prototype form (note the brown eyes instead of the doll's blue eyes, and the rounded bodice instead of pointed). Also pictured are the production versions of Nubia, Queen Hippolyte, and Steve Trevor.

Released 1976. Recommended for children over 3

Note that in the television series, the Queen was never named, except to be called "Queen Mother."
