  • Released in 1974, Mego’s Planet of the Apes toys followed their very successful line of World’s Greatest figures. The Apes toys were a series of eight-inch plastic figures based on the characters from the feature films, and released in time to promote the upcoming television series. They created toys for the characters Cornelius, Zira and Dr. Zaius. Mego wasn’t able to secure the rights to the likeness of Charlton Heston, so they created a generic astronaut figure instead. Also available were generic soldier apes, each with a slightly different costume. You could purchase apes decked out in Navy, Brown, Silver or “Lizard” (a scaly, shiny material). These soldiers also had bandoliers and rifles with arm straps.

    The truly great packaging was only available to those darn kids in theU.K. Palitoy (of course) bought the license to market Mego Planet of the Apes toysin the U.K. and the packaging for their figures was the best by far. Wow.
