GUNS OF NAVARONE ~ MARX PLAYSET!

GUNS OF NAVARONE ~ MARX PLAYSET!

WHEN DAN LUFT COMMENTED ON MY GUNS OF NAVARONE FORGOTTEN BOOKS POST, HE MENTIONED HE HAD A FRIEND WHO HAD MARX'S GUNS OF NAVARONE PLAYSET . . .

I WAS SURPRISED THE GUNS OF NAVARONE HAD BEEN POPULAR ENOUGH TO SPAWN A PLAYSET, BUT A QUICK CHECK OF THE INTERNET SHOWED LOTS OF ENTRIES ON E-BAY AND VARIOUS OTHER AUCTION SITES.

THE SHEER SIZE OF THE PLAYSET, HOWEVER, MAKES IT SOMETHING OF A WHITE ELEPHANT COLLECTIBLE WHEN IT COMES TO STORAGE . . .

I had one and foolishly sold it about 20 years ago. It's a great set and its size doesn't diminish its collectability. I believe the mountain was also used in an Iwo Jima set.
