The Only Good Human is a Dead Human!
General Ursus added to the Mego Museum 2021 Galleries
General Ursus joins Caesar in Mego’s wave 13 assortment of characters. Technically Ursus was a figure in the classic Mego Planet of the Apes but this is not exactly a straight reproduction of that figure. Mego took the classic Ursus/Urko (More on that debacle in the classic Mego Planet of the Apes galleries) and added paints and details to make the figure match James Gregory’s Ursus from “Beneath the Planet of the Apes”.

Clearly inspired by the Mego Planet of the Apes action figures, the AHI Action Apeman are some of the boldest knock offs ever produced, I’ll explain why I think that in this video.

This week’s Vintage Mego puts together the giant Mego Planet of the Apes Fortress Playset from 1975 and lets you get a good look at what’s inside.
We also talk about the sales numbers for the Mego Planet of the Apes range and discover that Apes were very popular even after the TV had come and gone.

EE is still listing as a January ship which is best case scenario for me seeing as Christmas is next week…..
Megocipsa lovingly celebrates the pants-less world of Mexican Planet of the Apes figures, I can’t tell you how much I love this line (and wish I could complete my boxed set) Scott, the webmaster has used his design skills to recreate the box art into trading cards, which he produced and gave away.
The site is a lot of fun,

Fun documentary about Planet of the Apes toys, hosted by Elvira, which is always a bonus.
