I am a sucker for action figures of primates – one day I’ll have to gather up all of the gorillas I’ve managed to acquire and take some pictures. Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the last movie installment in 2011, had some nicely articulated action figures of Caesar and Koba from a company called Hiya, but at the time they seemed a little expensive… a couple of years of price creep later and they don’t seem that way now.
But with NECA picking up the license for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, chances are we’ll see great sculpt, although I’m worried we might see a little bit less on the articulation side. I’ll just have to squint at that Sneak Peek video to try to see some more.
