Product Description

The set comes with full circular Roman arena consisting of 8 curved and 5 straight seating sections plus the Imperial Box section with 6 ornate columns. The arena when assembled will measure 38" x 22". Also included are 54 standards, 8 penants, 5 straight railings, 8 gates, 24 locking pins, 50 figures of Romans and citizens, royalty, gladiators, 4 lions and tigers, 1 donkey, 3 chariots, plus 25 assorted accessories. Over 150 pieces in total. Note: Parts are made from original Marx molds that were made in 1959 for the blockbuster movie tie in set that was all the rage in 1959. These reissue pieces were made almost 20 years ago in slightly stiffer plastic. We have taken great pains to assemble these limited number of sets in almost the exact way Marx did in 1959, but there might be a small crack or tip broken just due to age. If there are any, we can not replace them because there are no more of these available.

I received the play set as pictured - all white arena pieces. I have several other Ben Hur sets from other retailers where the pieces are mismatched or in red. I prefer these sections to be in a stone white or gray color for realism - and that's what I received. These reissue sets do not contain Ben Hur, the Emperor, or the Empress but you can supplement them with other figures or spend quite a bit to get them elsewhere. My play set didn't have a box featuring the Ben Hur artwork but a reused box from another Marx play set "Gold Rush". I saw that as an immediate bonus as now I plan to use that box and collect the pieces to fill that great Marx set. I own several play sets from Classic Toy Soldiers and the quality of the products and service you receive are unmatched in this hobby. Thank you again CTS!

This is a cool reissue of the original Marx Ben Hur playset from 1959. Unlike a lot of playset reissues that substitute items from other brands, this set is entirely cast from original Marx molds. Further, unlike other sets, this one includes about 98% of the original playset contents. You get four chariots, horses, two sets of all of the original playset figures, the Roman accessory set, Arab tent and accessories, and the arena. Unlike the original set, which gave you about 1/4 the arena, the reissue gives enough sections to make the whole structure. The only concession to time, is that over the years the molds for the set's original movie character figures are lost, so the reissue lacks Ben Hur, the Emperor and Empress, which came in the 1959 original playset. The colors of some of the plastic parts are not true to the original, but are not bad either. My set had a white and grey arena with a couple of blue box seating sections, and all of the Roman flags and standards came in nice metallic bronze and silver plastic. The set isn't as garrish and bright as the photo shows. Note that these reissues are really aimed at adult collectors. The Ben Hur chariots are fragile and would not hold up to much rough play. Likewise the arena is made up of a lot of very small parts. Given that buying individual original figures from the set can run you $2 to $40 each, the set itself is a very good deal in the end.

Other than the box the toys were packed in which could be misleading this play set is an exact replica of the original Ben Hur product and I would highly recommend it!
