GI Joe Clone 1960s Marx Stony Smith Old Store Stock Pants Jacket Buddy Charlie
Listing is for a GI Joe Clone 1960s Marx Stony Smith Old Store Stock Pants Jacket Buddy Charlie.
This is an outfit for the 1960's GI Joe clone by Louis Marx. Most GI Joe knock offs were put out by small, low end companies. This is the rare exception as Marx was a very large toy company that had been around decades before Hasbro had even begun. Marx originally tried to compete with Joe with Stony Smith - the Paratrooper. But Stony was different from Joe in that his "clothes" were simply molded and part of his "body". These didn't sell well at all and all 4 Buddy Charlie servicemen are incredibly scarce to find today!
It's strange that Marx also marketed this clothes set - as, previously mentioned, Stony ceame with molded clothes. They didn't make too many of them - they're pretty scarce today.
