Planet of the Apes. It’s pretty tough to find people who aren’t either completely obsessed with or mildly interested in the Earth takeover story. Well, MEGO knew that and so did everybody else who didn’t have any licensing rights, but did have stockrooms of plastics and fabrics.
These knockoff and bootleg MEGO figures make the heart go pitter-pat. Their dazzling audacious looks have charms unspeakable. Enjoy the copies of the copies. The folks at WorldMEGO can’t stop staring at the whacked out primates. And the terrific people of MEGOMuseum never miss an Ape.

BIG THANKS to MEGOhead, Paul Stevens for providing the next four photos. After comparing the Astro Apes with their MEGO inspirations, you can see his Astro Ape lineups. You have some fine taste there, friend!
