G.I.Joe, 12 inch dolls by Hasbro, 1964 -1976
Here is a link to the Canadian Industrial Design for the original G.I.Joe doll. It was registered by Hassenfeld Bros. and Hasbro Industries Canada in 1964:
Although the "status" says that the registration is in the public domain it's a bit misleading. Even though the industrial design is now in the public domain the doll itself is most likely still protected by copyright.

G.I.Joe: Hall of Fame, 12 inch dolls by Hasbro, 1991-1994
Among the three G.I.Joe dolls shown above are two of the first four figures to be offered in this collection in 1991: Stalker (centre) and Snake Eyes (on the right). The figure wearing the silver mask is Destro (on the left) was offered in 1992. I bought these second hand as a set and am missing some of the accessories. Below is a look at Destro's face and his two piece mask.
Here's a front view of Dr. X's face with his giant sized evil moustache and red laser eye!
And last, a closer look at Dr.X's "robotic hand"!!!
Planet of the Apes / Beneath the Planet of the Apes, 12 inch dolls by Hasbro, 1998
This is General Ursus from Hasbro's Planet of the Apes 12 inch doll series. He's missing his helmet and rifle. Hasbro initially released three dolls in this series including Ursus, Dr. Zaius and Cornelius. They were all sold in boxes with identical artwork. The only exception is that the box for Ursus said Beneath the Planet of the Apes on the front, while the other two boxes just said Planet of the Apes. These were released at the same time as Hasbro's 12 dolls based on Universal Studios Monsters, which included Frankenstein, Mummy, Wolfman, Bride of Frankenstein and Phantom of the Opera, all of which were packaged in the same type of window box as the Planet of the Apes dolls only with different artwork. The Apes and Monsters dolls were marketed together as part of Hasbro's Signature Series.
Shortly afterwards a second series of Planet of the Apes 12 inch dolls were released. This set included Zira, Taylor, a Gorilla Soldier wearing an orange and red outfit, and a Gorilla Sergeant wearing a black outfit with a silver stripe detail. If I'm not mistaken, the two Gorilla dolls had the same head as Ursus. These 12 inch dolls were sold in clear plastic tubes, as were a second series of Universal Studios Monsters. The Monsters set included Son of Dracula, Creature from the Black Lagoon (this one is a large size action figure rather than a doll), the Invisible Man, and a more detailed Mummy titled The Mummy's Tomb.
In 2001 Hasbro made a third series of Planet of the Apes 12 inch dolls. This set was based on the new Planet of the Apes movie by Tim Burton and included three dolls: Major Leo Davidson, Attar (the Gorilla) and for the last Hasbro made an unusual choice to include the female character, Daena.

This character is Firefly. I really like the face expression on this one.
This is Storm Shadow. He has a fabric sash around his waist.
