At this past weekend's Motor City Comic Con, I made the aquaintence of toy dealer Bob Serna, who had the most Planet of the Apes toys I've ever seen available for sale in one place. I spent the majority of my cash with Bob and I'll probably be going back for more shortly, here are some highlights. Above is a "Monkey Shines' flash light by Larami.
These "Gorilla Glasses" may also be by Larami and really show you what a true licensing juggernaut Planet of the Apes really was, it's the movie that likely showed George Lucas how much cash he could really make.
Larami's Ape Rifle
Apes Pinball, I love the header card on this thing...
Interplanetary Ape Phones?
A carded Azrak Hamway Ape Water Pistol was possibly one of the rarest items on display.
AHI's Zaius on horseback is a classic piece of POTA merchandise.
Now, onto what I picked up:
I've mocked the Azrak hamway Palnet of the Apes Helicopter for years but deep down, I've always wanted one, why? Because it's stupidly delicious and maybe a little bit because of this:
It's a little monkey pilot! Nice attention to detail AHI...
I don't know who made this cool little punch o'ball but for some reason I had to have it, maybe it's the reuse of the Addar model kit artwork, hmmmmm.
Anyway, I guess I collect Planet of the Apes again.....
