Review of the rare and classic Marx Playset. The Gallant Men. Wish they had made a "Combat" Playset instead, but nonetheless a great addition to any WW2 collection.

T Cohen's Superior Toys
ABC Combat Playset

Looks like a lot of Marx in it




Note found information on another site Superior toys initially copied lido figures and later Marx but at a smaller scale

Nice finds! That's an interesting site. That Combat Playset is no where near what Marx could have produced, but then again Marx always seemed to push out a Playset for a tv show when that show was either declining or being canceled.

Lots of fun playsets – then and now

Speaking of Gallant, my favorite set was Captain Gallant. I recall Woolworths selling bags of figures from the set so I had quite a foreign legion collection. When I went to college, my younger brother melted most of the figures, dropping the flaming plastic on ant hills.
