THis is information I found from another collector on this set. Marx first issued its 54mm scale Untouchables Playsets in 1961, appearing in both the Sears and Wards catalogs of that year.
The sets were numbered #4675 and #4676, but the contents seem to have been exactly or almost identical. This set, of course, was one of several that Marx based on popular television programs, relying on the program itself to provide sufficient marketing to sell the set. The playset box even featured a picture of the program's star, Robert Stack. The set itself had two character figures, one of Eliot Ness (again in the likeness of Stack) and Al Capone, both in cream.
The Untouchables television program debuted in the Fall of 1959 and ran for four years. Besides the character figures, the set included six "good guys", ten "bad guys", and two innocent civilians.
The figures came in either blue or gray, with sets having the "good guys" and civilians in one of the two colors and the "bad guys" in the other color. The good guys included policemen and Federal agents, and the bad guys varied from a stereotype tommy gun shooter to a gun moll. The civilians are a truck driver with his hands up and a guy lying on the ground, apparently dead. All are nicely detailed and imaginative.
The set came with two tin litho buildings and a variety of small accessories, including two tin litho gangster-era friction cars. While some of the accessories were borrowed or copied from previous playsets (such as fencing and telephone poles), several were made specifically for this set and never used in any other. The tin buildings used the same metal stamping as those in some other sets, but had all-new lithography.
As it seems to have often happened, due to planning time required to get a playset on the market, Marx was late in getting its Untouchable playsets to the public. Playset Magazine Issue 29 features the sets and notes that the company didn't release'The Untouchables' until around the time complaints against the show were mounting.
By the following year, the show had dropped to number 41 in the TV ratings and went off the air the next year. Yeah, but I bet a lot of kids were glad to have it, TV show or no. However, this must have shortened playset production, and it is a hard set to find today.
