Christmas Morning, 1962: Marx’s Operation Moon Base

Found photos of a very influential Marx set I talked about in a different Christmas morning shot. There were space exploration-themed playsets before Operation Moon Base, but this is the one that stuck. Molds from Moon Base would be re-used in different Marx sets (including 1979’s Galaxy Command) for nearly 20 years.

The playset format perfected by Marx dominated until Kenner met Star Wars.
