Havoc, Super Agent, was the only doll in this sadly shortlived 1970's toy line, may look familiar to doll collectors - that's the same head sculpt as the Mary Quant Daisy doll, both made by Model Toys Ltd. However, all 9" of Havoc came on a more articulated body with neck, shoulder, elbow, wrist, waist, hip and knee joints... very much like Horsman Toys' PoliceWoman doll over in the USA, a resemblance that carries over to the artwork and packaging.

VARIATIONS;

(i) We'll start off with perhaps the most major Havoc variant I've ever seen. Many thanks to Lady Pirkko in Finland for this amazing find. And yes, that is a GREEN bodysuit!

(i) Some Havoc dolls lacked elbow and wrist joints (which brings up a parallel with Mego and their 8" WGSH girls). If you want to upgrade from the stiff armed version and don't mind a slightly paler skin colour Horsman's Policewoman does use the same articulated body as Havoc... and she can be picked up somewhat cheaper than a Havoc too!

(ii) Other than unexpected green, Havoc's jumpsuit also seems to have come in a variety of blue hues - from so-dark-it's-nearly-black to fairly light.

  Havoc was merely a codename, the girl behind the alias remained - as far as I know - unnamed but worked as a newspaper reporter... possibly on the Daily News, prop copies of which appear in some of the adventure packs?

  Perhaps if the Havoc toys had been a success we'd have seen her enemy; the notorious Dr Grizzle of the wonderfully acronymed S.M.O.G.G. (Spying, Murder, Outrage and Gold-Grabbing) given plastic form.
