Mattel Timeless Treasures: The Wicked Witch
Generally, vinyl dolls seem to bear a much closer resemblance to their celebrity counterparts than the porcelain versions do. However, Mattel surprisingly proved to be the exception to the rule when they released their Timeless Treasures series of Wizard of Oz dolls. Fitting into the 12" Barbie scale, it's even more amazing to see the accuracy of the sculpt. Few Wicked Witch/Margaret Hamilton sculpts look as good as this one.
Even the broom is accurate to the one used in the movie.
You can almost hear her saying, "I'll get you, my pretty!"
Compared to most other Oz dolls that typically deflate in value, these have held up fairly well on the resale market.
