Marx Repo Military Flatcar Load - Armored Car Dk Blu HP

Let's start our look at the repo Marx Military Flatcar loads made by Marx of Miami, the Jay Horowitz incarnation of Marx during the late '80s - '90s. I have several repos of the Marx Military Flatcar Loads but only one complete opened set (I have another set still in an unopened bag as part of a playset). This group is in a darker blue plastic than the original. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

Original Marx (L), Repo (R)

Throughout the set you can see degradation in mold quality. Compare the grill on the repo (L) to the original (R)

Flash (excess plastic oozing out from between mold halves) on the fender of the repo (L). This is something one would probably not have seen on an original from the '50s
