Marx Galaxy Command Playset - Pt 4

There are 16 soft plastic figures in 11 poses and 2 colors, white and a bright neon orange. Unfortunately my camera just couldn't capture that vivid orange color and what you see here is the closest I could get even after editing. The figures are approx 2 1/4" (5.7cm) H. The playset being one of an exploration theme, none of these astronauts carry weapons as was so common in earlier Marx space-themed sets. No, these guys are collecting samples, installing scientific instruments, planting flags, etc. The set is rather apropos for today considering the recent - within the past couple of years - push to finally get people off of this rock and out there into the cosmos exploring again. Great stuff! Enjoy!

Some people believe the guy below is hammering a scientific instrument into the ground. me personally I think he's setting up the mailbox!
