Toy Solder Saturday: MARX 54mm FRONTIERSMEN

If you were commanding the defense of the Alamo against Santa Anna's conscripts, or battling to save Fort Apache from rampaging Native Americans, these are the guys you'd want by your side. Marx used them in most of their Alamo sets and some of the forts. 

And no, this guy above is not supposed to be Davy Crockett. It's too dang bad he isn't, because their "Official Davy Crockett as Portrayed by Fess Parker" is a joke. I'll tell that story in a future post, but suffice it to say that with that figure, Marx really screwed the pooch.

More midget warriors HERE.

I agree completely on Davy. Did you forget the standing firing and bugler or run out of room? I'm sure you have them.

They're probably in another box with the later dark blue figures.
