I know I’m gonna buy Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. YOU know you;re gonna buy Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. And now we all know where to buy it– Target has listed an exclusive edition of the Blu Ray, which will include a specially packaged Planet of the Apes Classic Gorilla Soldier by NECA!
The only info thus far is the Target listing, but it appears to be the same (awesome) figure from POTA Classics Series One, but packed on a cool retro card that retains the look and feel of the old school Mego doll Apes from the 70s. I kind of love it.
What I love even more is the price– $24 gets you the Blu Ray of Dawn PLUS the Gorilla… That’s an excellent deal, especially for a legitimately great toy and an even better movie!
I do think it would have been cool for NECA to tweak this Apes’ paint deco to replicate the brown jumpsuit of the original Mego toy, but regardless, he’s a great figure, and it’s such an awesome idea to include a soldier builder in this bundle instead of an extra Caesar or something most of us already have!
