Let's see, there was more Planet of the Apes stuff to show, wasn't there?
Ah, Mego's Fortress, which was probably reused for at least one other action figure line (although I can't think of which one it was off the top of my head)... or maybe it was a redress of an older Action Jackson thing. Or maybe I'm mixing this up with the treehouse?
Here's some of the Planet of the Apes models, assembled and painted by modelers much more talented than I am!
I love pieces of memorabilia like this one, which was designed to promote the first movie. Never mind that it would be anachronistic (given that the Ape civilization didn't seem to be using the printing press in any form)... it's cool!
These "oil can" puzzles were also sold in standard boxes, too!
Planet of the Apes plate - beautiful!
Here's the back of the box for the plush Planet of the Apes figures... it's not my imagination, right? It's a line art version of the artwork for the model kits, isn't it?
Not a lot of resemblance there to their cinematic counterparts, is there?
The licensors got a lot of mileage of that "family portrait" picture from Escape from the Planet of the Apes, didn't they? Here's a cool radio it was used on!
Here's the Multiple Toymakers target set... not sure why they thought you'd want to shoot Cornelius or Zira!
I would've loved to win a copy of this item, just to read what it has to say!
And here's a half-sheet UK poster for the first movie!
And just for something completely different, here's a paperback novel based on one of my favorite TV shows of all time, The Prisoner!
