Interesting!
As far as I know there are no recolors of Cover Girl. Could it be a knock-off or perhaps a custom repaint?
Does she have the stamps/markings?

I'm sure you already know this, but most GI Joe figures have been recolored at least once, and then released as a different version of said figure. There are also variations from countries like Brazil and Argentina, but I don't remember seeing this particular repaint anywhere... sorry.

Could have been a test run (prototype) figure at the time, with it being dated 1982 and all. Covergirl didn't come out until 1983 with the Wolverine if I'm not mistaken. And I haven't seen that variant anywhere either, sorry.
