Well, Hot Toys just got the license, and they are producing Cosbaby versions. We already have Kubricks. Apparently there is strong foreign geek support for this line, so who knows? I am content with my handful of Kubricks, personally.

Unfortunately 'foreign geek' support isn't that strong for the Minimate line though! ;) Why is that do you suppose?

Of course, you can't all have populaces with tastes as refined as that of Americans whatdoyoudo.gif (we need this "smiley" icon!). By "foreign geek" I was mostly referring to Japan/China. Supposedly the Japanese love them some Planet of the Apes. In the U.S., there were some MEGO Apes re-released recently, I think, and Sideshow did a line a few years ago, but apart from that, I don't get the impression that there is a lot of domestic support for this stuff. But, maybe I'm wrong. I'm not a kid of the 60s/70s, so I can't properly gauge the nostalgic support for this kind of thing.

It's a very small niche-community, but they are very passionate. Too bad, really, as I truly believe (of course I'm a biased child of the 70's! :P ) that it is definitely in the top-5 sci-fi classics. As much as I'd love some Ape'mates, it would probably be a hard sell in the States. I'm hoping that HotToys does something with the license for their "snap-kits" as I've always dreamed of some 1:18 Apes. Speaking of which, Palisades Toys had these in the planning stage just before they went under...I'm still bummed! *ahem* That's your cue to chime-in MisterPL!! :lol:

I just went through the whole POTA saga on bluray (thanks to netflix) so it's been on my mind lately, lol. I don't know if a whole line would be necessary, but a box set of Zira, Cornelius, Zaias, Caeser, Aldo, Taylor and Nova might be nice.

What, no soldiers?!? Swap Aldo for Ursus (definitely more iconic "the only good human, is a dead human!") and I'd be down. Of course then I'd be crying that I don't have Brent, the Mutants, Orangutan council, Lucius, Julius, McDonald, etc., etc...

You're not alone. Planet of the Apes was the first movie franchise I fell in love with. I even watched the cartoon and TV series. Naturally I collected the Mego figures and the Treehouse. Those were good times.

 

It's safe to say I'd gladly add any and all Planet of the Apes Minimates to my collection.
