1963 Marx Company Commander Playset Factory Sealed Box

1963 Marx Company Commander Playset Factory Sealed Box

This is the No.4938 "Company Commander" Combat Line playset by Marx. It was stored since new and only recently discovered in the attic of the original owner. Amazingly it's still factory sealed on both endflaps. The toy has never been removed from the box since it was originally packed nearly 50 years ago. Just as important; the box is in beautiful near mint condition!

Inside are six combat toys.

  • Automatic pull-back reciprocating machine gun includes turret with three separate legs (tripod). Approx. 23" long. Colored two-tone camo-green with adjustable sharp shooter sight, recoiling red barrel tip, and staccato noise. Thumb control allows for single shot or automatic fire. Mechanical action requires no batteries.
  • .45 Caliber Cap Pistol uses realistic pull-back barrel mechanism. 8" long.
  • Eight (8) red plastic bullets which load into the pistol grip and eject through barrel with actual synchronized firing of exploding caps.
  • Holster with ammo pouch, 9" tall, 3" wide. Uses buckle clip and tabs to attach to holster belt.
  • Holster belt 24" long, adjustable. Secure holster/ammo pouch.
  • Exploding Grenade 4" tall with removable metal pin. Rotating base permits individual cap insertion. Like a real grenade the pin must be removed to engage the cap.

The brilliant colored box is printed in orange, dark yellow, olive green, black, and white. Two panels show a GI machine gunner and GI with gun and grenade. Catalog number, list of contents, and Marx logo are printed on these panels as well. Two opposite panels have the toy name "pseudo"-stenciled in black and orange on white and olive green background.

The box holds a die-cut cardboard insert printed with multiple schematic instructions showing machine gun assembly, pistol loading and firing, and grenade loading and operation.
