Plastic toy solders from 60 s

Post by vwsf » Tue Aug 16, 2016 4:59 pm

When I was a kid in the 60s there were three America soldiers and three German solders that were plastic ( green and gray) that stood about 8 inches tall in different poses.
Does anyone remember these. Any still around?
Would love to see pictures of them again. Thanks
Tom

What you're looking for are Marx 6" army men. They made Americans, Russians, Germans, and Japanese. They're perfect to display with a Marx jeep and artillery piece.

Some have been remade using the original Marx molds. You can find both originals and remakes on e-pay every day. Search Marx Soldiers, Marx Army Men, Marx GI, you'll find them.

Here's a link to some remakes: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Marx-6-Soldiers ... SwyQtV6JvE

And some Germans: http://www.ebay.com/itm/MARX-GERMAN-SOL ... SwuYVWmbbh

Thats not the ones I remember. I was wrong on their size, they must have been 8 inches tall.
And I only remember three different poses for each USA and German soldiers. I saw them again many years ago at Tower PArk, but it didn't register with me till much later what they were.
Thanks
