PostSubject: Marx 1971 Endangered Animal Series   Tue Feb 23, 2016 8:50 pm

Hi folks! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

As you might have noticed, I like to do some research on animal figurines, especially animal figurines that are tiny and cute. But I'm far from an expert when it comes to vintage animal figurines! I only own one composition model and whenever I find any other vintage figurines, I sure have to ask around before I know anything about them Razz

A few days ago I was searching on the art site deviantART for animal figurines, wolves in particular. I found a wonderful wolf collection from a very friendly lady from the USA whom seems to have joined STS a couple of months ago, but unfortunately can't find the time to share something (EDIT: fortunately, our Fallon is now a full-time STS-member!). But about her wolf collection: I noticed a very beautiful red-brownish wolf figurine in a smaller scale. When I asked her about the figurine, she told me the following:

Quote :
The red/brown wolf in the front is a rare vintage 1971 MARX red wolf from a series they did depicting animals that were considered endangered at the time.

Okay, so first of all.. RED WOLF ALERT!!! As far as TAi goes, whe only know the existence of the wonderful larger scaled red wolf mom with two pups. Now it looks like good old Marx made another red wolf! But secondly, a series about endangered/vanishing animal species.. Those are always interesting to me and quite a lot of other people from STS Smile

So I dug a little further. I couldn't find anything about the red wolf and other series members on TAi, so I extended my view Suspect Searching for older eBay auctions, I found a few pictures of figurines from this series (all pictures made by the sellers!):

Eagle

I love the red wolf, because it's hard for me to not-love any wild canids Razz But I'm really in love with the eagle as well: it almost looks like Kaiyodo drunken They're not that big, around 60mm. I found a picture of the giant panda on Worthpoint.com, there you can see how small it is:

That's all the information I can find for now. I'd love to here what you think about it, and even better, if anyone knows (or even owns) more of them! cheers Oh by the way, the seller on eBay (all older auctions) said something about 'series 1'.. This could mean that Marx made several endangered animal series scratch I could try contacting the seller, try if he/she still knows anything about them..

Thanks for reading!

I already found some others affraid Some information at a Marx 1971 red wolf on Worthpoint.com states:

Quote :
After the success of the Marx Animal Kingdom series figures, in 1971 there w as a very scarce series of 10 hand painted vinyl plastic figures known as the VANISHING (Endangered) ANIMALS. This hand painted soft vinyl plastic RED WOLF of Southwestern North America is a figure from the first series, marked 1971, measures 1 and 3/8th inches tall x 2.25 inches long, and is in very good condition with no damage.

I found a Atlantic walrus and ringtailed wallaby (is this even a species? I found 'rock-wallaby' somewhere else) as well, pics will be up in a minute Wink

About the Giant panda:

Quote :
Following the success of the Marx Animal Kingdom series figures of the 1960s, in 1971 there w as a very scarce series of 10 hand painted vinyl plastic figures known as the VANISHING (Endangered) ANIMALS. This GIANT PANDA figure is one of the figures from that series and quite a scarce find. It measures 7/8th inches tall x 1 and 13/16th inches long and is in very good condition with no damage.

Atlantic Walrus

The second series figures are typically in a bronze finish, though I have seen just as many in an unpainted version such as this ATLANTIC WALRUS. Measures 1 and 1/8th inches tall x 1 and 15/16th inches long, and is in very good condition with no damage.

I don't have too much to add, it seems I've found the same information as you. Though, I'd probably never notice it if it was not your researching spirit! Very Happy I love that you always bring so nice things to the forum. I hope Tim sees it, he is a Marx expert, I guess. Very Happy

60mm is probably the scale of the figure and not its size. 60mm means that they fit with a human figure that is 60mm tall. Maybe something around 1:30 scale, I guess.
ringtailed wallaby is the former name of Yellow-footed rock-wallaby (Petrogale xanthopus)

It seems Eric Johns is an autoryity in this matter, try to use this e-mail. Who knows you're lucky. Very Happy

I think not, he seems to be a collector of Wild West, soldiers and other related vintage figures and he created [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] website. Very Happy
There you can find several informations about Marx animals and also links to other websites. I can't check it carefully next days but maybe a good idea is that you ask directly to Marx museum which website is linked there.

Thanks Roger! I'll check out his site and the one of the Marx Museum. I'll share any additional information in this topic. I think I'll contact them, it's always nice to gather more information Smile

Very very interesting Julie!
I have never heard of this series before. I think it must indeed be very rare. The plain colors are very typical for Marx.
It will need addition at TaI since it was not part of the Marx section when I added it originally.

Hi, hi! I see you found the original photos of my Marx red wolf back from when it was up for auction on eBay. I wish I would have bid on the other animals of the series since none of them really went that high in price. But since I didn't know high the wolf would go, I decided not to. The same seller who had the red wolf also had a listing for a 1972 Snow leopard figure. I'm not entirely sure it was a Marx, somewhere in the description it said it was from Germany which leads me to believe it was from a entirely different company. Last I checked, MARX was a US based company...unless they outsourced?
I've occasionally come across other listings for other animals besides the ones mentioned above in the vanishing /endangered  series, there appears to have been more than one series released too.

Welcome onf forum and congratulations for getting that rare Marx red wolf. Will you show it to us? It would be great! Very Happy The only 1972 snow leopard I am aware of is a Marx indeed. It belongs to these World Wildlife Fund series.
I also think it is interesting to share that picture I've found in the Internet with a box of Marx WWF figures.

Very interesting Roger! Sculpting looks like typical Marx, with some being different size versions of older animals they made.

Very interesting Roger! Sculpting looks like typical Marx, with some being different size versions of older animals they made.

Tim, those are all 1st series from 1971, all others we know their existence are 2nd series from 1972. That box also shows that I was probably wrong about 60mm being the scale, they look almost closely the same size so maybe 60 mm is their aproximate size to fit in these windows.
I wanted to list them on TAI but I think I'll let this work for you if you don't mind. Very Happy

Hi, hi! I see you found the original photos of my Marx red wolf back from when it was up for auction on eBay. I wish I would have bid on the other animals of the series since none of them really went that high in price. But since I didn't know high the wolf would go, I decided not to. The same seller who had the red wolf also had a listing for a 1972 Snow leopard figure. I'm not entirely sure it was a Marx, somewhere in the description it said it was from Germany which leads me to believe it was from a entirely different company. Last I checked, MARX was a US based company...unless they outsourced?
I've occasionally come across other listings for other animals besides the ones mentioned above in the vanishing /endangered  series, there appears to have been more than one series released too.

Great to see you found some time to visit STS! cheers I understand your pain for not bidding on the other animals as well, but still, that red wolf would be gold to me drunken

And this box looks very interesting, Roger, thanks for sharing!
