Marx PL Book Analysis

As I go through the PL Pages, I try to look for little clues or facts that seem interesting to me. I capture these in a section on the PL Book Viewer I call 'Analytical Comments'. Not every page has these comments and I add to them as I learn more from other sources.

This page shows all the comments I've made about a particular PL item. Scroll through to learn more...

Girl from UNCLE
* There is also a hand written question (?) mark next to the entry '2 knives' in the mold contains section. This may indicate that there's been a type-O on the PL page (there never were any knives in the set) or that the figure was supposed to have some sort of knife that never made it into production. I believe the former - just a typing mistake.

Mold Contains list shows 2 Keys but the actual sample shows 3 keys. Either a typO in the mold contains list or a last minute change to the actual mold. Simplest solution is that it is just a typO on this PL page.

PL-1242-B 2057C Black Scout Head Jed Gibson

Although the head mold for Jed was received by Glen Dale in Feb. 1975, the accessory molds were not received until after April. So Jed likely hit the production line in May or June of 1975.

PL-1242C 5062 Johnny West Quick Draw Head & Hands Johnny West QD
Johnny West QD
Following the PL Sequence numbers of this PL (PL 1242) it can be assumed that this QD head was made almost 2 months after the Jed Gibson head. This would make the QD versions of Johnny and Sam the last 12 figures designed by Marx.

Stony Smith
Since this has an Erie, PA mold number it is my belief that Stony was first produced in Erie, PA and then the molds were either duplicated for the Glen Dale plant or more likely, shipped, to Glen Dale for normal production.

Looking at the sequence of PL numbers written on the page, it would indicate that Stony was made first, and then the PL 1242-A or -1 was created for Daniel Boone and then PL 1242B was created for Jed Gibson. So, we can assume that Stony was actually the first 12 inch figure produced by Marx.

Stony Smith
Since this has an Erie, PA mold number it is my belief that Stony was first produced in Erie, PA and then the molds were either duplicated for the Glen Dale plant or more likely, shipped, to Glen Dale for normal production.

The fact that this mold contains "2 extra parachute releases" may explain why there seems to be more of these pieces than actual parachutes since each stony figure got this accessory set but only the paratrooper versions got the parachutes.

PL-1244-2 Stony Figure Access. Dup. Mold Stony Smith
Stony Smith
No mold contains list.

No indication of why a duplicate mold was needed. But since this PL page does not mention the original Erie mold number it might mean that this mold was the Glen Dale set and that Stony was made in both Erie, PA and Glen Dale, WV for a time.

Stony Smith
Since this has an Erie, PA mold number it is my belief that Stony was first produced in Erie, PA and then the molds were either duplicated for the Glen Dale plant or more likely, shipped, to Glen Dale for normal production.

Since this mold also has the parachute releases like PL-1243 it means that this little accessory was produced in doubles unless Marx blocked them off during production. So did the paratrooper versions of Stony actually have two parachute harness buckles??

PL-1255 2058 Articulated Stoney Smith Stony Smith
Stony Smith
This PL Page would indicate that the articulated Stony (originally called Stoney) was made in Glen Dale and was put into production after March 1965 by the dates on the pictures. So the order of figure production may be
Non-articulated Stony
Daniel Boone
Articulated Stony (which could be the first figure to use the new elbow and knee joints)

See the full PL Page

PL-1256 Erie Stony Fig. Mold no 19938 Stony on Maneuvers Equipment Stony Smith
Stony Smith
This was likely a boxed set that did not have the figure, just the 'Field Equipment' needed for Stony.

See the full PL Page

PL-1266-1 Articulated Cowboy (Erie X9400) Johnny West
Johnny West
There's a lot of information on this page.

1. Johnny was made after March of 1965 so the order of figures would be: Nonarticulated Stony, Daniel Boone, Articulated Stony and then Johnny West (both articulated Stony and Johnny have dates in March but since the picture is dated May, I believe Johnny came after the articulated stony).

2. The arms and legs were changed in 1970 indicating when the mold was changed to allow for the clevis pins in shoulders and rivets in hips.

3. Some new mold was made for Canada in 1973 but never shipped. Was this a new design or just a duplicate mold??

4. Since this has an Erie, PA mold number it is my belief that this set was first produced in Erie, PA and then the molds were either duplicated for the Glen Dale plant or more likely, shipped, to Glen Dale for normal production.

5. The PL numbers indicated on this page 1266, 1266-1, 1266-2, 1266-3 indicate that there were actually 4 Johnny West body molds made over time.

See the full PL Page

PL-1266-2 Articulated Cowboy Body (Erie X9400) Johnny West

PL-1266-2A Item no 5062 QD Johnny West Access. Johnny West QD
Johnny West QD
Stars added to Johnny West sets in June 1973, Best of the West half way through production.

So the mold for Sheriff Garrett body was created in April and the Johnny West hard accessory set was modified in June by adding the stars, indicating that Sheriff Garrett went into production in June or July of 1973.

This also indicates when the Best of the West Johnny version had the stars added to the set - June of 1973.

See the full PL Page

PL-1266-2A Item no 5062 QD Johnny West Legs, Arms etc Johnny West QD
Johnny West QD
This would indicate that the original molds were used for the QD version of Johnny by blocking off the torso section of the mold. And then PL-1602 was created for the new body and arms in May of 1975.

PL-1266-2 Johnny West Cowboy Art. fig. Body Johnny West
Johnny West
Actually the 3rd Johnny West body mold made. First two would have been 1266 and 1266-1. No PL-1266 page has been seen but the 1266-1 page indicates a Erie, PA mold number. So this may be the mold used exclusively by Glen Dale.

PL-1266-2 J Jesse James Art. Fig. Body Jesse James
Jesse James
First PL mention of the new Jesse James figure. Unknown date but clearly shows that the torso and lower legs were the changes made. So Jesse would have used the same upper legs and arms as Johnny West.

At the end of April 1973 Sheriff Garrett was to use the same mold.

Still trying to determine what is meant by 'Core Pins'. Could these be seperate mold parts that were inserted to create the hollow cavities for the neck post, arm and hip springs???

Typo in mold contains should say 1 Left Arm Upper instead of Lower.

Buddy Charlie is born 22 May 1965! Originally for Erie, PA production. This figure was originally issued in a cellophane bag with a backing card calling him Stony Smith. Possibly because of a disconnect between producing the figure and the Buddy Charlie or All American Fighter boxes.

Three molds were necessary for Buddy, see PL-1270 and PL-1271 for the other body parts

Comments on this page indicate that Chief Cherokee got clevis pins on October 2nd, 1970 but Fighting Eagle did not get them until March 26, 1973. This should mean that all 'flesh / red' colored arms do not have clevis pins and that some 'carmal / darker' arms don not have clevis pins.... I have to verify this and try to figure out why it took Marx so long to change this mold.

PL-1274 Indian w access (Erie X9600) Fighting Eagle
Fighting Eagle
PL 1274 is for Chief Cherokee originally made in Erie, PA (see Erie part number reference).
PL 1274-A is for Fighting Eagle.

Fighting Eagle got clevis pins on March 26th, 1973.

Interesting possibility indicated by the hand written note: It seems that Fighting Eagle may have been conceived with the Cherokee torso but then it was decided to give him a 'New' body with bare chest. The other possibility of this note is that the writer is just highlighting that this is a new type of indian body - being bare chested... Hmmm...

Fighting Eagle
This PL Page states the changes made to the Chief Cherokee PL (PL-1274) in order to produce Fighting Eagle. The use of NEW threw me for a while but I believe it just means that this is a new set of parts for Fighting Eagle as compared to Chief Cherokee. I had originally thought that it might mean that F.E. was issued with the cherokee torso and then changed.

Maybe that is why the first UK Fighting Eagle's used the Cherokee bodies - easier than getting the new molds from the US for the Bare Chested version.

Since this has an Erie, PA mold number it is my belief that Chief Cherokee was first produced in Erie, PA and then the molds were either duplicated for the Glen Dale plant or more likely, shipped, to Glen Dale for normal production.

I believe the figure production went:
Stony - Non-articulated leg
Daniel Boone
Stony - Articulated leg
Johnny West
Chief Cherokee
Buddy Charlie
Then production was moved to Glen Dale, WV

PL-1276 Erie x9600 Inidan Accss Cherokee, Geronimo, Fighting Eagle
Cherokee, Geronimo, Fighting Eagle
In order to issue Chief Cherokee, 4 molds were needed:
1. Body mold - PL-1274 (5 April, 1965)
2. Soft Acc Mold - PL-1275 (after 29 March, 1965)
3. Hard Acc Mold - this PL-1276 (23 April, 1965)
4. Head/Hand mold - PL-1277 (after 12 March, 1965)
so Chief Cherokee could not have been produced until 23 April 1965. Likely a few weeks after, so Chief Cherokee is likely to have been first issued in May of 1965.

Headband not molded on geronimo head. I have seen a molded Geronimo head with the headband as part of the sculpt. This was obviously changed to having a seperate accessory headband. Maybe because none of the other head accessories (feathered headdress, buffalo horn headdress, feathered headband and ceremonial mask) would fit the sculpt with the headband.

This one has me confused. The order dates show 1966 but QD Sam was not conceived until after 1972. This may be the original James West mold but with new inserts for the original cavities. PL1348 or PL 1348A (if exist) may shed more light on this puzzle. This also indicates that the leg molds were changed for regular Sam when QD Sam was issued. Because of the torso change the legs had to be modified but they used them for the regular Sam too.
