Odds ‘n Ends > Caesar Ape Figure, Art Asylum News, ToyGuru on the Mighty Spector

  • Out of nowhere comes this super-articulated Caesar from Rise of the Planet of the Apes from Hiya Toys. It’s available for preorder at BBTS for $25. He’ll have alternate heads, hands, and other accessories.
  • I was a bit disappointed in Art Asylum’s early Universal Monsters offerings due to their limited articulation, but it looks like they’ll be making up for that with their upcoming Metaluna Mutant and Phantom of the Opera figures. I’m seeing hip hinges there. The Mutant will come with an Interocitor, which will finally allow me to put those MST3K figures I got with my box sets into some sort of a display.
  • In other Art Asylum news, they revealed pics of their Avengers¬†Hulk, and again, he’s looking great and well-articulated. Even better, due to the Hulk’s imprecise size, he’ll fit in perfectly with other Art Asylum figs or your 6″ Hasbro Avengers¬†figures.
  • There’s something interesting cooking up over at Onell Designs…namely, some sort of new vinyl variable hub-system.
  • MOTUCFigures.com has an interview with Scott Neitlich about the Mighty Spector.
  • On a more personal note, PGPoA recently regained the average number of pageviews/visits it had before Poe’s Great Ennui of 2011 began last spring. I want to thank you all for sticking it out during that dull time. I hope you’ve been enjoying the site more as of late – I know I have. And I’ve got some fun stuff planned ahead. Keep reading!

  • Wow… I obviously hadn't budgeted for them, but I'm gonna have to try and make room for that Caesar and that Hulk. They're both awesome!

    I still need to see Rise of the Planet of the Apes, now that I think about it.

  • Don't worry, Poe. I (and I'm sure many others) check this site probably way more than we should during the day, salivating for more updates!

  • Man,Articulated animals?WHO WOULD BUY THAT?I am compelled to make Caesar wear a tie and pose in an office like those forgotten 80's posters.

    • I got to agree. I loved the movie, and it is reconizable as Caesar. But that just means its a chimp. I mean is it came with a glass of wine, some Prozac and a creepy old lady….or a torn off penis of a NASCAR driver. I mean whatever floats your boat. I mean I guess he can fight my Malloy.

  • Poe, what are these MST3K figures you speak of? You mean the cardboard cut-outs, right? I'd hate to think I missed actual action figures of the series' characters!

    When, oh when, is some clever niche toy company gonna make toys of those guys?!
