The Genesis of the Mego Soldier Ape Figure

Today, we have not one but two different stages of prototypes for the Mego Planet of the Apes Characters.

These original samples have been rumoured to exist for years and now we finally have beautiful full colour shots of the very first Mego Planet of the Apes characters.

Not only do we have the original hand made prototype but an early factory test shot of the Soldier Ape (or as early advertising states "General Ursus")

Also, don't forget to register for this year's Megomeet convention, which is being held this June 5 & 6th in Wheeling WV. Admission is $20 and a dealer table (which includes admission) is $32. It's the only all Mego event of it's kind. Click here to register.
