1979 Sears Christmas Catalog: Marx Play Sets and The Incredible Hulk Play Case



I think this is the last year the major catalogs sold Marx playsets, thanks to Kenner’s revolutionary Star Wars toy line. The Iwo Jima Jungle Mountain looks exactly the same as Navarone, except that Navarone is a grey-blue.

The Hulk Play Case looks even lamer and junkier than the Buck Rogers one I had. These cases were made of vinyl, and the attachments were cardboard.

I like how they used Godzilla’s foot to demonstrate elastic Superman.
