The figure -- which has been found in cream, yellow, and chocolate colors -- apparently replaced the usual cowgirl pose included in the group.
It is a bit better sculpted and detailed than the other cowboys in the group, but based on the photos here, the real Annie was more attractive than the Marx Annie.
The photos include Although most collectors are sure these are Marx figures and were never sold in the U.
S., the Plastic Warrior article states that the original owner of the painted figures said they were manufactured in 1957 by an English company called Kenure.
These are made in a nice white soft plastic that shows figure details very well.
And unlike the original vinyl figures, they can stand up!
The seperate mold for the animals survived and somehow ended up in Mexico. with the attractive Marxville Western Ranch House than the the gunslingers and outlaws from the 45mm Cowboy group.
Both Rick Koch and Rich Delbert had a few of them on Ebay in early 2008, all in excellent to mint condition.PFPC stated that the five were found by Gary Linden in a box he obtained in 1983 with remnants of the Marx bankruptcy warehouse sale.Recently, Kent Sprecher has made an inventory listing of the known poses in this group, including 16 cowboys or cowgirls and 7 animals.This 60mm Davy Crockett figure has a square base with Davy's name inscribed on the front and "As Portrayed by Fess Parker" on the back.Dates of birth and death -- which are on the back of other Wild West pedestal figures -- are on the bottom of the base.
The Mexican re-issues I have seen include only the seven animals, not the cowboys or cowgirls.
