A trio of Marx plastic toy soldiers from the 1960s. We have an American with Thompson submachine gun and grenade. A Russian Sniper and wrapping it up a Japanese officer with binoculars. The Russian and American are missing the tips of their firearms but I got a good price on the trio so all good. The Japanese is the best of the lot anyway with good animation and excellent detail. Note the binocular strap hanging down. Kids took their toy seriously back then.
The American is not marked on the base and could be an MPC knock off or could be Marx. Unfortunately for collectors not all Marx pieces are marked Marx and some reproductions are marked. Sometimes you just have to guess.
