Nutty Mads..........

Yeah I know, its like did I stumble into some dorky toy blog? Wheres the motorcycle stuff? Well it's Christmas time, and these are toys I still buy! I think they're cool as hell and alot of people have never seen anything like em.

(yeah if you wanna buy me a gift these two would be good ones)

These figures were originally released by Marx in 1963-64 for about 15 cents each. These freaky lowbrow creatures were released in nearly as many different colors as their are figures. They feature crazy characters in bizzaro poses cast in great detail. The figures mostly range between 4 and 6 inches tall.

The color of the figures impacts the price nearly as much as condition with the blue, maroon and bright red figures being especially popular. You can find common figures in good shape for $10-$15. The harder to find figures in rare colors can bring over $100.

Like many of the popular Marx six-inch figures, Nutty Mads were reissued in the 1970s and 80s but these are not worth nearly as much. A cool gift idea for fans of Lowbrow Art!
