We can't throw Roy away!!

These old broken and toxic looking Marx toys sold for a dollar apiece.

Broken hands, ugly dark stains of vinyl... but, some replacement Mego hands and some homemade paper hats, and new saddles, and Roy and Trigger are ready to ride the range again.

I had one of these in 1960.  Kids broke the fingers trying to put Roy's gun in his hand.  Brittle and fragile vinyl, like playing with a polystyrene model...  The accessories were a soft rubber vinyl that caused the body vinyl to stain and melt... ugh...

Happy Trails to you!
