NECA is really challenging me on my classic Planet of the Apes love. As we’re getting baby-prepped round these parts, I’m trying to think of where I can cut back a little. These packaged shots of Classic Planet of the Apes Series 1 prove that NECA is out to get me. They’re gorgeous! And if the quality of the recent Predators & Aliens figures is any indication, these will be some of the best POTA figures ever. I already feel their fingers in my wallet.
NECA has been revealing these packaged shots on their Twitter account every Monday under the #mondaymonkey hashtah, but last Monday, they upped the ante with our first look at Zira from Series 2! There does appear to be some soft goods mixed in there, which I’m not a fan of, but I’ve got to see the whole figure! How long til SDCC again?

Classic Planet of the Apes Figures?”
I might be more interested IF I could have a chance at finding these without driving an hour and a half… >_>
I tend to get NECA online anymore. They do show up at the TRU here, but it’s random.
Do you not have a direct market comic shop near you? They can order these through Diamond.
Yeah these look really great, gonna get em all. And just FYI, you have the tag backwards; it’s #monkeymonday. 🙂
lol I was debating last night and should’ve just looked it up. It was late! I’ll fix it.
Well, the classic Mego figures relied heavily on soft goods and those still up to time! Granted, I am biased in favor of soft goods but still, I can see NECA scoring yet another huge hit with these.
Congratulations on the baby-prep!:D
Thanks, we’re at 7 months… getting close…
Even though my HT shelf is growing, I’m still biased against soft goods on the little guys. It’s a necessary evil in some situations and I think this is one, so there’s that!
Super excited! Preordered a long time ago.
I’m looking forward to who else rounds out wave 2!
I’ve got the Dawn of the PotA figures from Neca, and they’re some of the best monkey figures ever. I’m really looking forward to getting classic Apes figures.
I’ve seen those, but been unable to pull the trigger.
If you do, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. They’re some fantastically made figures. Whether you love the new films or not, they’re very well made primate figures. With weapons. Except Maurice, he’s just got a book that he can’t hold.
I haven’t picked them up either. I’ll probably have to get the Koba with rifle figure when he comes out, though.
