We are offering several vintage hand-made prototypes / samples from the Marx Toy Company Engineering Department. The Company changed hands several times, until its assets were finally liquidated in 1980.
Chuck hung onto his collection until he passed away. The item(s) being offered here, is from the collection of Chuck Saults. Description - MARX PROTOTYPE BLONDIE & DAGWOOD COMIC FAMILY MOLDS & FIGURES - The figures are not a machine molded plastic figures. They are hand made / sculpted works of art, by the professional designers/artists who worked at the Marx Toy Company in the 1960's. The five figures are made of plasticine, and the partial molds made of plaster.
When completed, these figures would be used to create the steel injection molds for mass production. Look closely at the photos. The figures are much more detailed than the mass produced plastic figures. I assume this is because some of the detail is lost when you go from handmade to mass production.
