What have we here? Apparently, Kenner was thinking about a Planet of the Apes line of action figures to coincide with the Tim Burton atrocity of 2001 — huh? This prototype figure is being offered at auction and it’s not too shabby — kind of a superhero/He-Man ape.
Of course, Hasbro ended up releasing a line of figures for the Burton movie that were pretty awful, while Kenner made 12″ dolls based on the original PotA movies. This prototype makes me wonder what could have been — the world could always use a few more apes.
