I'm Really Excited about my Latest eBaY Score! A Vintage, COMPLETE, MARX JANE WEST! Yes COMPLETE! Most parts Still Attached to Their Sprues! And the Best Part Is, I Got it for Close To Nothing! bounce bounce I did notice that everything Feels Oily. I'm not sure if that's some kind of Chemical Reaction from years of storeadge or what, but i'm gonna' air everything out for a few days and see if THAT Helps. Then i'll gently wash everything with soap and water. Very Happy

PostSubject: Update On My Jane West Set   Latest Ebay Score! Icon_minitimeTue Jun 13, 2017 3:04 am

I went back and Carefully cut the parts away from the sprues and Trimmed them out. While I was doing this I got to thinking about Why These pieces were So Rubbery compared to my Vintage Johnny West pieces? And they were also Coated in some kind of Oily Substance? And I think I figured it out....This Set is a Re-Pop from the Original Marx Molds. eBaY's Full of'em right now. I found a site where some guy was talking about a 50th. Anniversary Johnny West Set that's being produced and he talked about the "Rubbery" Re-Pop Parts compared to the "Stiffer" Original Plastic parts. This would also Explain this Oily Residue on mine. I think it's the Mold Release compound that they use on the Molds. A little Soap and Water fixed that. It's Still a Beautiful Complete Set and at $12.00 + Shipping it's still a Great Deal. cheers

Hi Jack
Thats still a sweet find - I like the Marx figures as they supplemented my Action Man Crew. They also came with a bit of USA "Glamour" to them - I'm talking about the analogue 70's lol! lol!

If you find any more info about a 50th reissues series - Pop a line on the the forum ? cheers cheers

Thanks Rage,

That was really interesting read - I had some dealings with Stewart but hadn't seen the 50th posts on his site .

Its a pity I wasn't active in the hobby around 2000-2005 by the look of things- some really interesting recast/customs being done at the time .

Take care
Steve
