I love Addar Planet of the Apes model kits!

For this Friday's feature, I get kind of personal and explain my love for Planet of the Apes model kits and how they made me the (largely unemployable) man I am today. Join me after the jump!

Arm's Master

I love Rack Toys, I love Space:1999 and of course, Knock Offs. So when all three get together and have a baby, it's a good time for me. Meet Arm's Master, a weirdly named series of toys that stole the molds from both AHI Space:1999 and Star Trek toys (seriously, check out this phaser!).

Seeing as the eagle gun pops right off the card, let's take a look at the art after the jump:

1976 Langley Star Trek Poster Catalog

Unlike today, Langely and Associates was one of those rare places in the mid 70s where you could buy fan merchandise, their catalog was loaded with everything from King Kong posters to a whole selection of 8" by 10" stills from "The Prisoner".

However, the big thing was a wonderful array of Star Trek merchandise, particularly an amazing amount of groovy posters. I've seen some of these in comic book ads but never in full glorious colour, check em out after the jump!

Kusan toys combined household appliances with zoo animals and had a major hit in the 1970s, who says LSD didn't have it's merits?

Bionic Classroom

I was slightly deceived by the title "Bionic Classroom" as a kid, I assumed it would be a playset where Steve and Jaime did cool Bionic things.

Nope, it's just Jaime's work, a school that seems to be located at the airport and judging by the chalkboard, she's blown her cover.....
