Classic Toy of the Day!
This knight and steed were offered, among other Marx action figures, in the 1969 Sears Wish Book! As with all the Marx action figures (like the better-known Best of the West, featuring Johnny West) were molded with some clothing already on them (like most action figures these days), but they were a full 12 inches tall, and came with other accessories and clothing that could be put on the figure... such as this knight's armor.
The line must've been very successful, as it lasted from the late 60s or so through the 70s, and maybe even into the early 80s before it came to an end!
