I have been a Mark for Marx toys since I was a kid and had the Disney line of Marx toys. The solid plastic construction and solid bold colors have always stood out in my mind. A little later on in my art career and toy collecting I stumbled across the whole line of Marx figures. As a huge horror fan I gravitate toward the universal monsters set, and saw the campus cuties line in process. A few years later I decided to revisit the Marx figures when I found a single campus cuties figures at an antique store.
I knew I wanted to make a line of these toys when I discovered the wonderful world of Mexican bootleg Marx toys, I purchased a huge run of these figures and set to work. As a horror guy, my usual genre (if it isn’t political commentary), I knew I wanted to combine the sex appeal of these figures with a horror element, knowing the golden age and universal monsters had already been tackled by Marx, I wanted to hit my love of the slashers era. To keep the sex appeal I knew a head swap would be my focus. I cast the heads of a few neca figures including the Toony terrors line, these would be my slasher heads. Now it was just a matter of arrange, glue, paint, and package. Easy peasy. Lastly the name for the figure line came easy, horror, slasher movies, and the final girls, Scream Queens it is.
