Cool Stuff: Planet of the Apes Stuff!
This Frisbee-style flying saucer toy is from AHI, who probably produced more POTA stuff than any other licensee except maybe Mego!
Here's a look at the Topps cards for the Planet of the Apes TV series:
I've discovered on the Planet of the Apes online archive that the POTA coloring and activity books shared a LOT of pages between each other!
I'm not sure why AHI thought Planet of the Apes parachutists made sense... although I suspect they made AHI some bucks!
Half sheet for the first movie!
The awesome Planet of the Apes Fortress from Mego!
There were a few Mix N Mold kits made... I see these turn up about once a month!
"Oil Can" puzzles!
As goofy as these plush figures are, the puppets made by the same company are goofier, somehow!
The classic poster - click to supersize!
Swedish POTA Comic, issue 4!
Target set! I think I've seen this on the eBay just once!
Bubble bottle Zaius!
AHI's Wind-Up Walking Zaius!
And we wrap this up with this classic poster - click to supersize!
Next time... a utility belt, some movie posters, the Rocketeer (just because), and a few superhero toys!
