A small set with a wind up gyro space ship + astronauts, aliens and a few accessories. The figures and accessories were all in one mold and run in both green and orange colors.

The Space patrol figures were made in tan and shades of redbrown/orange. They are made of rubber like vinyl. The mold had one each of the two aliens and two women and two each of the 8 men. Sets that had only 10 figures would then not get one of the aliens and one of the women.

This mold contained 20 cavities and has the figures known as "Rex Mars" or "generic" space figures. There were two of the figure "floating in space", and one each of the other 12 humans and 6 aliens/robots. Playsets would have multiples of this grouping depending upon size. Most of these figures exist with and without bases (the mold was altered). In early sets they were usually made in blue or yellow rubber like vinyl. In later years they were made of soft plastic in blue, silver, cream, metallic blue and a variety of other colors.

54 and 60mm Figures
First Series 54mm Silver Astronauts
This mold was made in 1961. PL-1120 had 16 cavities that included two different 2pc "bell" suits + 12 figures in 9 poses with three of the poses in duplicate. The seated figure was also used in the space capsule mold (PL-1119) and the pointing astronaut was put into the revised ground crew mold about 1960.

The Apollo astronauts are also called the "60mm" astronauts although they are more like 58mm in scale. They were made in white and bright orange. The mold PL-1503 had 34 cavities making two "sets" of 17 pieces as seen above. There were two different rockets, a small thin box and 14 figures in 12 poses in each "set". One duplicate was the man walking with ring hand as it took two of this pose to "carry" the thin box. Based on what we have seen the other duplicate is the figure with the hammer. As the mold made two sets the second duplicate could be different between the two 17 piece sets. This was the last playset figure mold Marx made and these figures were not put into playsets as complete 17 piece sets so it is difficult to determine the mold contents. Six of the poses were also made (PL-1500) in the 6 inch scale, usually in white.

Like many of their figure molds the Marx ground crew mold had 16 cavities. The original mold made in 1959 had two each of six poses and one each of four poses (see photo above). In 1961 the mold was revised (thanks to Rusty Kern of PLAYSET MAGAZINE for the date information) and one of the two figures "holding gloves up" was replaced with a fully suited astronaut pointing (see picture below). We have seen the later mold shot figures including the astronaut in all the colors except metallic blue (this pose is also included in the silver astronaut mold and a smaller version in the Disneyland playset figure mold).
