I have never been a big fan of the original Planet of the Apes movies. In fact, I only watched the original one about two years ago. It was OK, but I just didn't get into it.
However, I loved Rise of the Planet of the Apes. It was done very well and the story seemed very realistic. I am totally psyched about Dawn of the Planet of the Apes which comes out July 11th.
NECA just released the new Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Picked up Caesar and Koba at Toys R Us. Maurice was sold out - have him on preorder though.
I also purchased the Rise of the Planet of the Apes figures released by HIYA Toys in Japan. The scales are about even. Looking forward to an ape army diorama in the near future.
