We are offering several vintage hand-made prototypes / samples from the Marx Toy Company Engineering Department. The Company changed hands several times, until its assets were finally liquidated in 1980. Chuck hung onto his collection until he passed away. The item(s) being offered here, is from the collection of Chuck Saults. Description - MARX PROTOTYPE FRONTIERSMAN WITH RIFLE FIGURE - This 6-inch Tall (155mm) figure is not a machine molded plastic figure.
It is a hand made / sculpted work of art, by the professional designers/artists who work at the Marx Toy Company in the 1960's. It is sculpted in a modelling medium, called plasticine.
When completed, this figure would be used to create the steel injection molds for mass production. Look closely at the photos.This figure is much more detailed than the mass produced plastic figures. I assume this is because some of the detail is lost when you go from handmade to mass production.
