Marx Play Sets for 1975
Marx is the rolls royce of playsets, having gone from their hey day in the 1950s and 1960s, they still had a little fight left in them by the mid seventies. While miles away from their former glory, they were cranking out a toy that delivered hours of play in a little box.
Commanche Pass utilizes the Western theme which was dwindling in popularity from it's heyday in the 1950s but still quite viable.
The Navarone play set didn't seem to suffer from the anti war toy stance in the early 1970s, in fact, when Marx went under a few years later, Mego even released this set and later retooled it for their Eagle Force line of toys. the Prehistoric mountain playset was new for 1975, dinosaurs never truly go out of style.
I'm surprised to see no science fiction entry this year, that would change.
