The Marx 60mm pirates were made as part of their Warriors of the World line. They were usually made in hard plastic and factory painted. They were given "names" and sold individually in small boxes with a card to describe the person's history. They were also sold in groups in larger boxes.
Vintage 1950s soft plastic unpainted pirates
These are same figures as the Warrior of the World pirates, but made in unpainted soft plastic and sold individually from store counter top displays. They can be found in waxy cream, flat cream, brown, redbrown, yellow and light blue. The brown and red brown seem harder to find.

The Marx 54mm Pirates
Marx made 13 54mm pirates for a Treasure Island playset that never went into production. Twelve of the poses were eventually made in hard plastic and factory painted and sold in small boxed sets. Rare test shots of all 13 poses in white soft plastic have surfaced. The mold cavity for the 13th pirate (captain holding pistols at chest) surfaced in the 1990s and he was reissued with some other Marx figures by Glencoe.

The Marx 54mm Colonial mold had 12 cavities with three marching, two standing shooting and one each of the other seven foot poses. Playsets would then have multiples of this grouping depending upon size. The mounted figure was made in a separate mold and can often be found in playsets in a very different blue color than the foot poses. The flag bearer in the above photo is a recast from Mexico and is in a very darker color than the rest which are in original light blue. MAY NEED A GOOD CLEANING.

NONE - Heritage Battle of the Alamo circa 1972-74.
SORRY SOLD - 1996 Commemorative 160 year anniversary RECAST Alamo playset by the NewMarx company. These were always a surprise as you never knew what they had on hand for their Alamo sets. They once used BMC Mexicans when they could not get resupplied with Marx recasts. So this set had some issues that I corrected when I opened it. It was missing the 8 pegs to hold the ledges and I supplied Heritage era dark brown ones. Tin chapel, gate with doors, six no hole walls, two walls with holes & two ledges. The figures were a bit of a mess so I put in a better mix. There are 37 Mexicans in all shako & round "Presidio" hat poses and 31 Texicans including both the 45mm & 60mm Crocketts. All 9 Boonesborough pioneers in gray, all 10 45mm Cavalry/pioneers in light gray (+3 darker gray shooters) and the 3 available Ft Apache/Alamo pioneers in silver + man chopping wood and woman with buckets who can be Mrs. Dickerson. Also added were two more cannons for a total of four and six more 54mm horses (two with saddles added) for a total of ten. A set of 60mm bucking rearing horses came with the set and are included but they are too big for the figures (one has a broken leg). A set of outdoor accessories, 2 cacti, flag pole (with paper flag) and ladders + all the paperwork.
