The Lone Ranger Rides Again!
By Euphrates
Lone Ranger FigureThere have been many great Lone Ranger toys made over the last few decades, but the focus of this article is on one of my favorites - the Gabriel/Hubley/Marx line of action figures released in 1973.

You will see the packaging, which is quite attractive, marked Gabriel, Hubley or more commonly Marx. Apparently, the Gabriel/Hubley line was sold in the states. Later, Marx took over the line overseas. You can still find a bunch of this stuff MOC/MIB in southwest Europe

One of the best things about The Lone Ranger Rides Again! line is that despite its age, collecting these figures and accessories is still very affordable. The figures boxed or carded can still be had for $40-$100. Of all the figures, The Lone Ranger, Tonto and Butch Cavendish are the easiest to find. You can get them loose and complete for about $25. The rest of the figures, especially Tex Dawson and El Lobo, are much harder to find but still can be had for about $100. The colorful Adventure Sets can still be found boxed or carded for around $25-$50.

I'm including a list of all of the figures and accessories below. You can find more information in Tom Heaton's book
