NECA is getting ready to unleash the Planet of the Apes, and the next step is boxing them up– literally. The toymakers revealed the package art for their modern POTA toys– based on this summer’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes– on Twitter this week. I have to say, I love this look!
The blister card is no huge surprise, but it does a nice job of showing off the figure, while the red biohazard graphics offset with the steely greys and blacks of the card art. It works, both as dynamic artwork and thematically for the movie, one that I am truly excited for.
Also of note– the Caesar inside this package does not include his skeletal warpaint… Most likely he’s just an unpainted sample, but it adds further fuel to the fire that I really hope NECA releases a non-warpainted version of our main monkey at some point in this line.
Look for the first wave of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes figures to hit late May.
