Time for another edition of Cool Stuff, where I share photos of items that were offered on eBay some time back!
I should really send this photo of this very inappropriate Popeye squirt gun to the Fail Blog!
Planet of the Apes... Archery Set??? Anyone recall ever seeing bow and arrows being used in any of the movies or tv series?
When Mego made their Planet of the Apes toys, they couldn't get the rights to use Charlton Heston's image, so they created the Astronaut, whom I believe was a reissued Action Jackson figure!
Nifty banner for the first Planet of the Apes movie, eh?
One of Mego's clever POTA accessories was this Battering Ram!
Another bizarre Apes item is this Doctor Zaius bubble blower!
Here's some of the other Mego POTA figures:
Peter Burke, from the TV series!
A Cornelius bank, manufacturer unknown!
Ursus bank! Or is that Urko?
Mexican Lobby Card!
Galen Poster Puzzle, from Aurora!
And here's an assortment of publicity stills from the first movie:
AHI made this POTA Swim Ring, which you might've guessed from the art style!
UK comics hardback annual!
AHI Dr Zaius paratrooper figure!
And last, but not least... this very cool Planet of the Apes mug!
Next time around: Power Records, Pufnstuf, and more!
Season's greetings from Boris Karloff and the Grinch!
