Hi, I've just finished a scratchbuild of the ship from the first two Apes films. (A slightly different version appears in the third film and the tv show). The model is 30 cm long and made from plasticard and milliput.
Saw a modern flick called Primal Force last night about angry baboons. It was dire but I appreciated the aping around.
It reminded me of a much older horror flick called Primal Rage, again about cross gorillas.
Do you remember Primal Rage from the 1988?
There was a range of carded action figures and boxed vehicles too I think but theses came out in the mid-90's so may not have anything to do with the film. the movie was a horror film and not really for kids! I may have sold a few of these figures and weapons over the years. Hard to say. The plastic parts of many action figure ranges all looked the same in the 90's!

I suppose Jurassic Park and Congo boosted this whole sub-genre of toys as crazed apes and armoured dinosaurs suddenly appeared in many ranges like Primal Rage and Dino Riders TV ad courtesy of You Tube and Cadillacs and Dinosaurs. TV ad courtesy of You Tube again.
