Mego's Elastic Batman and Elastic Hulk, neither of which make any sense!

This Planet of the Apes coloring book looks like it's supposed to be based on "Escape from the Planet of the Apes," but I've learned that these books are pretty much a mishmash of stuff!

Here's some "First Spaceship on Venus" stuff:

I can only guess that the movie viewer here and the extension gun above were produced when the license was cheap to get!

  1. Cool stuff. I had a stretch-y dude when I was a kid. Not sure which, though. I seem to recall The Thing, Ben Grimm, but not sure.

    And that Apes coloring book. I am not a big fan of the movies - did they really have a baby? Or did they adopt an Earth ape? Cause all I can think is that they would see an Earth ape child as a 'special boy'. LOL


    Cool stuff, dude!

  3. Wings - Don't recall a stretchy Thing, but you might be thinking of Stretch Monster.

    On the Apes baby -- see Escape From the Planet of the Apes. Zira was pregnant when she and Cornelius arrived on present-day Earth, and swapped their child with a normal chimp. Their child, Caesar, was raised in a circus and eventually led the revolt of the apes.

    Missy -- Which item are you referring to?
