Incredible as it sounds Marx made three sets of Robin Hood character figures within a few years of each other. The rarest set (60mm) was designed for the special "Richard Green" TV Robin Hood series with the characters looking like the actors in the show. Then another "standard" 60mm set of five figures was made followed shortly by a six figure (with added Minstrel) 54mm set. The 60mm sets were always (I think) made in a pale green and four of the 60mm merrymen were place in the same mold. The 54mm figures were made in cream for playsets and silver for bagged sets. Possibly made in tan for the Canadian market.
