US VIKINGS 1970 - 1972
The Brave Vikings, Erik and Odin, were introduced by Marx in 1970. They were introduced as an
accompaniment to the Noble Knights and I guess meant to be an adversary. Historically that concept is
obviously very silly, however to a young boy, the knights now had something to fight - great!
ODIN THE VIKING CHIEFTAIN
Odin has a caramel coloured body with reddish brown hair and a full beard. His accessories (22) consist
of black hard plastic weapons and helmets and cream coloured clothes. He came in an MOD type box and
contained a Viking instruction sheet.
Boxed Odin's are quite hard to find especially with all their accessories intact. The most common problems
are the bow is usually broken as is the strap on the horn and quiver. The cord on the cloak is also very easy
to break when it is taken off the figure. (Be careful when you pull the cloak over the head).
