More Mall Appearances: Planet of the Apes meets Star Wars!

Planet of the apes store appearance for mego

A Mego fan sent in this rare shot of a Planet of the Apes store appearance in the mid seventies, note the Mego Apes Play sets and the Addar model kits in the foreground.

Darth Vader appearance

Erik sent in this great early 80's Vader appearance, I love that Iron On Empire shirt! Only as a kid was it cool to wear the shirt of the band you're going to see..

I love that Darth Vader is clutching the kid's throat in his hand. What happened, Lord Vader -- force choke wasn't working that day?

Speaking of the iron-on shirt, do they still do that these days? I had so many iron-on shirts in the 70s, and they were all awesome: John Denver, Shaun Cassidy and "Keep on Truckin'" to name but a few.
