Just like GI Joe, the Marx range of figures spawned a host of foreign counterparts made under license, and just like Joe, nowhere were those counterparts more weird and wonderful than in the Spanish speaking world. Made under the brand name 'Plastimarx' Mexico produced a unique variant,,,the peach coloured Knight!

While the US/UK gold knight had a tan body Plastimarx thought they'd be different (although they produced the Tan bodied gold knight too!) I'd been scanning Mexican ebay for ages looking for one of these. Adding more 'variant' issues to the chaos is the fact that this one has the Silver Knight Sir Stuart/Sir Rowland head. These peach knights usally come with the cowboy range 'Sheriff Garrett' head.

Re-armoured in some repro armour (Hhis original Plastimarx would have had a greenish tint to the gold but that's another variant issue!)

Here's el caballero de oro

Had the Silver one and Horse back in the Day, Sadly he didn't survive his Quest... As I recall, the straps being moulded and non-forgiving plastic broke making the Armour difficult to fasten after a few times. Mine did double duty as a Johnny West character, so as a kid removing and donning armour he was well loved and played with, but current whereabouts unknown. Thanks for posting, brings back fond memories of Xmas's past.

Were there any trousers to go with this set, or did the Marx Knights go around with there bums showing? Shocked Laughing

They, like the Johnny West figures, came with clothes moulded on the figure. There were accessories that went over it, like the Armour for the Knights, and Chaps and Vests for the Johnny West. There was no nudity in Marx figures that I'm aware of. It was less obvious with my Silver Knight, but it does look that way for the one in these photos, not sure why, perhaps the Mexican variant was cast in a lighter color, as even the North American Gold Knight looked fine. As an aside the Armour is correct in have no coverage on the rear, as a Knight in this type of Armour was on Horseback, and thus never 'exposed'.

The Stony Smith military figure also had molded clothes, but the All-American Fighter (aka Buddy Charlie) was a nude figure with cloth uniforms like Joe and Action Man.
