The now-lustrous film franchise got its beginnings with French author Pierre Boulle’s 1963 novel La Planète des Singes, which depicted a race of intelligent apes who battled with humans over control of the world. Sound crazy? It was just crazy enough for the evolved-primate world to fall in love with it over decades and decades.
Now, NECA has finally released the second wave of Planet of the Apes seven-inch figurines, featuring a brand-new version of Dr. Zaius (pictured below), General Ursus and Dr. Zira. Zaius is outfitted in a long overcoat, coming with cane and scroll accessories to complete his scholarly aesthetic. General Ursus comes with a pistol and holster to put it in, quite fitting for the leader of the Gorilla Army. The genius psychologist-vet Dr. Zira brings her trusty notepad and pencil with her, just like in the 1968 movie. All three of the figures are true to their on-screen form. Don’t miss out on the chance to round out your Planet of the Apes collection with them!
