DVD Volume VI

Volume VI: Return to Glen Dale

Follow the thread of your youth back directly into the heart of the factory that helped shape it. Here is the very place you've seen named on the side of nearly every Marx playset carton. A haunting tour conducted by Marx VIP Mr. Bucky Livingston, former factory GM, in a nostalgic, reflective video for the Marx affectionado. You'll actually go inside both factories and meet the men who ran the machines and flatline; see the park that Marx built. As originally released, this film has none of the "action" of our other movies and is recommended for the dedicated or advanced collector. Approximately 30 min. Stereo / Color.

Bonus 2nd Movie: Son of Return to Glen Dale

Tons of playsets and playset displays! More than a decade after the original film was made, we return to find some great new changes and TONS of plastic. The Official Marx Museum and Kruger Street Museum have been built. Check out the Marx Convention. You'll lick your lips at a fabulous sale with 100's of playsets and see who picks what; tour both museums, and see a presentation on the Marx demonstrator boards by PM's Demo Man George Kroll and bonus "The Foley Tank" chapter with Rick Eber. Wide Screen Approximately 30 min.

Atomics DVD's are broken up with fun events, and in this one collectors’ side trips include a thorough visit to George Kroll’s fabulous collection where we examine the Marx Skyscraper in glorious action, compare Battle of the Little Big Horn and Custer’s Last Stand sets.
Volume XIV: Marx Blue & Gray Sets
Rarely has Atomic tried to “round up”all the sets in a given theme for viewers of their high definition DVDs, but the Marx Blue & Gray sets are all here on one enjoyable DVD. For the first time ever in the hobby, accurate information is available on the exact contents and differences in some of Louis Marx & Co's greatest Civil War sets. From the earliest sets like American Heroes through the first boxed playset, through the Centennial and Giant (smackdown included!) to Heritage and HO sets.

The No. 4658, No. 4759, No. 5959, No. 4744 & 4745. No. 4760, No. 4762, and a mint boxed opening with Rick Eber and Craig Remington of 4744 in what turns out to be the super rare color version. Each of these is handsomely examined, from beautiful , complete displays, or factory demonstrators, some are opened bag by bag so you can see the original intent of the firm. The material moves swiftly, so repeat viewing's are advised!
Four big Bonus Chapters include the complete original recording of the Marx Giant Blue & Gray Record (a Marx Giant set exclusive), a chapter on exact Marx Civil War figure groups, and a deleted chapter, more.

Volume XV: Marx Fort Apache Story


SEE PREVIEW
Atomic's newest DVD, “The Fort Apache Story” is on the warpath! Open the gates to our companion to Fort Apache – The King of Playsets book, and more than 20 select Fort Apache playsets shown in detail. There's the full story of the 60mm sets, the Famous Americans, the Rin Tin Tin sets; even a few obscure sets. Then move on to the "are we or aren't we" transition to the 54mm sets. See gorgeous displays, and a special segment on the Revised 60mm Pioneers -- for once, end that bit of confusion!

Our 15th feature-length DVD is an hour and a half long; like the others theres a ton of fun and Marx history mixed into the firm’s legendary playsets, atomic-era toys, and a definitive look at the Marx Fort Apache Playset in many variations, how they were inspired by the John Wayne movie. We've added views photographed at the real Fort Apache, and look at what they “got right, and got wrong.”
Read the Book - See the Movie

This sparkling new DVD is a companion piece to our new book, “Fort Apache The King of Playsets,” but it’s not the same. There is more information in it, and different information, while we follow the twenty-year timeline of the set and review its many highlights.

The film also introduces Ranger Bob, whose near-comic love of the 60mm figures may tickle some and make others laugh (along the lines of Michael Jordan’s Box Doctor in previous films we have released) plays counterpoint to the “high drama” we present of the Marx playsets.
Plus there are a few other makers’ forts as well, like a side trip to Paragon Miniatures and a visit with Gene Abravaya to see the new Fort Apache. Along for the ride are Rick Eber, Craig Remington, Ron Angleton, Jim Clouse, and interviews with many other collectors who tell their personal stories as the Fort Apache story unfolds before your eyes.

The movie features Marx Fort Apache sets in detail, discusses what they have and don’t have, big changes as they occur (we follow the complete timeline from 1951 - 1970) and their exclusives, boxes, character figures, etc. This new DVD has bonus chapters on the Polka Dot Boxed Indian reinforcements, and all the specific figure groups (45mm, 60mm, and 54mm and Revised 54mm figure groups) which were incorporated into during the famous the playset’s thirty-year timeline).

We are very proud of our newest production, and invite you on an eye-opening adventure into the Old West as we Open the Gates to the Marx Fort Apache's as-yet Untold Story!

So get your raiding / watching parties all set up, because we ship FAST (within an hour or two in most cases) because we are fully staffed and working for you each and every day.

It's bigger, longer, with more fun and information than ever before, but its still just $19.95 plus shipping from your friends at Atomic. Credit cards accepted, of course. Or send checks or just call (719) 634-740 and yell, "OPEN THE GATES!" to Fort Apache the movie!
