Back in the 1950-70s, the Sears Wish Book contained a range of playsets from Marx Toys. Many remember those pages fondly – and remember the excitement of finding a playset under the Christmas tree. Marx is no longer in business, but we carry recasts of their figures as well as models from many other manufacturers. Inspired by Marx, we’ve produced a huge variety of our own playsets for over thirty years. We offer painted versions of playsets in addition to unpainted ones. They don’t cost $7.95 as they did in the 1950’s, but our playsets offer great value.
Here’s a selection of our most popular playsets for 2016:

Expeditionary Force of Singapore has released a new set of Ancient Persian Immortals, their first Persians with interchangeable weapons. These figures arrive with weapons cast separately. They can be easily changed between figures, allowing for greater flexibility, and minimizing the bending that can occur when weapons and arms are cast in one piece. Expeditionary Force has already produced ten Persian sets, including a first version Immortals set. Including color variations, we now have 90 sets of Expeditionary Force listed on our website – an incredible number from this young company.
