The Marx 60mm pirates were made in Hong Kongas part of their Warriors of the World line and in Germany as part of their German Masterpiece 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. At least two molds were made, one with slightly larger figures than the other.

The Marx 54mm Pirates

Marx made 13 54mm pirates for a Treasure Island playset that never went into production. It was then proposed to make a generic pirate cove playset but it was never made either. 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.

For some reason Marx made only four US poses for their Mexican War set. For the Warriors of the World series the marching man was done in three different paint schemes with different names and the man with paper and shooter were each done twice. Oddly the crouching man was not included in the Warriors of the Worlds series.

AMERICAN CIVIL WAR FIGURES AND ITEMS
60mm Civil War Figures
The Marx 60mm American Civil War figures were first made in unpainted rubber like vinyl and then in soft plastic and sold as counter display / bin toys individually and in boxed AMERICAN HEROs sets. Earliest figures do not have bases but like other early figures bases were added for stability. The molds were then sent to the Charmore Germany factory where the figures were made in painted hard plastic as part of the German Masterpiece series. The molds then moved to Hong Kong where the foot poses were again made in painted hard plastic and sold as "Warriors of the World" Reissues have been made.
The Union figures have a variety of paint schemes.

Some of the Marx miniature American Civil War figures were also sold on small blister cars as Tiny Traders. On tghe back of each card was a painted picture of the figure and his given "name". Picture courtesy Christopher Wallentine.

The Union figure mold had 16 cavities and held four marching figures, two each running, lying shooting and advancing with rifle at waist and one each of the other six poses. A playset would have between one and four groups of these 16 figures. This means of course that 25% of all Union figures were marching.

This mold also had 16 cavities and contained; four marchers, two each of the kneeling shooting, running, and yelling poses and one each of the other six poses. So each playset would have between one and four groups of 16 Confederates depending upon size. Like the Union figures 25% of all Confederates were marchers.
