Marx was a pioneer in using plastics in toys, and after finding success with his Green Army Men, he expanded the concept to include playsets featuring Cowboys, Space Men, Presidents, cartoon characters and historical conflicts. This photo essay will focus on the plastic people, and how they mutated into the modern action figure.
