Agent Zero MSam's Toybox Homepage

I've started selling some of my toys & collectibles.
See my eBay Store for current listings. Thanks, Sam


The Agent Zero M line of toys from Mattel in the early 1960s made young boys feel like real spys. The toys transformed from everyday-looking objects into weapons, mostly cap guns. First is the Radio Rifle which turns from a simple transistor radio into a cap rifle. No number on the toy, it is dated 1964, and I have seen versions of this toy still sealed in the box sell on eBay for nearly $200.00. Next is the Snap-Shot which turns from a camera into a handgun. Also dated 1964 and with no number on the toy itself. Other toys in the line were a movie camera and knife that turned into guns as well as a belt buckle that has a pop-out derringer. I have also seen the Spy Detector Game released with the Agent Zero M logo on it.

Other spy toys in my collection: FBI Jr. by Nasta, Sixfinger by Topper Toys, Sooper Snooper by Marx. Though they don't make the Agent Zero M toys any more, lots of toys are still available through for your budding counterintelligence officer.
