SIR GORDON 1968 - 1972


Sir Gordon was first released in 1968. He came in a Castle style box with 56 accessories that included a full suit of armour, his weapons, a green feather plume, a stained wooden flagpole and blue and yellow paper banner. His body is a green/brown colour with brown hair and beard. Marx created a new head mould for Gordon that was used later in Canada for one of the Dangerous Dan figures.

In 1970 Marx upgraded these figures putting rivets in the shoulders and re boxing them in MOD style boxes in line with the rest of the Johnny West figure range. The instruction sheet was also changed.


Points to note about Sir Gordon.

The gold armour varies in colour. From a darkish dull gold to bright gold and finally a kind of honey coloured gold. His hair and beard can also vary from very dark brown to light brown.

SIR STUART 1968 - 1972


Sir Stuart was first released in 1968. He came in a Castle style box with 56 accessories that included a full suit of armour, his weapons, a red feather plume, a stained wooded flagpole and a red and yellow paper banner. His body is a light grey colour with black hair and goatee beard. Marx created a new head mould for Stuart that was later used for other figures such as Sam Cobra, Dangerous Dan and several Mexican Viking figures.

In 1970 Marx upgraded these figures putting rivets in the shoulders and re boxing them in MOD style boxes in line with the rest of the Johnny West figure range. The instruction sheet was also changed.


Points to note about Sir Stuart.

Unlike Sir Gordon, Stuart's armour is fairly constant in colour and his hair is always black.
