Please see the photos for details. Produced from 1966 to 1968, Mike Hazard was Louis Marx & Co. S answer to James Bond 007.
He wasn't actually a double agent; Marx just thought that sounded good. He was the classic secret agent armed to the teeth and then some. Standing 12 tall and made from a dark blue poly-plastic, Mike can be identified by his unique head with brown hair and a face showing a grin. Mike came with really cool spy accessories, which were molded in black poly-plastic and mixed flesh or tan colored soft vinyl.
It is common with these vintage action figures to be missing some of the 62 accessories.

Trench Knife for case (1). Cloth Trench coat W/ Belt (2).Was started by Louis Marx in 1921 with his brother, David. They used equipment bought from Ferdinand Strauss, who was a former employer of Louis.
They adopted mass production for the toys and in 1940s to the 1950s Marx introduced play sets that featured figures, animals, buildings, furniture, trees and wagons. The play sets had themes like military bases, an airport, a farm or gas station. Among the most popular and earliest concept was the American Civil War and Wild West play set. The popularity continued up to the 1970s. A new method known as molding technique was introduced in the manufacturing of the toys and accessories of the play sets.A figure was created and it was to be used to make a strong metal mold, then plastic or hot vinyl was poured in the mold and given time to cool off. The end product was a figure that resembled exactly the original. The earlier figures were sculpted crudely with no close attention to detail, but they improved later as they stared using soft plastic that would produce realistic figures. Lithographed and pressed steel were the materials used to make buildings.
Smaller accessories were made using hard plastic but at times with soft plastic. The Marx play sets did not have paint; they came with the color of the raw material that produced them. They mixed the raw material into different shades of red, blue, gray, brown, yellow plus an off-white that they called ivory. It was not able to maintain and run the business as Marx did.
