While they didn't have any prototypes on display for the line... they did announce at SDCC that they have secured the license for Planet of the Apes. Both the Classic Films and the modern Rise and Dawn. Which is awesome sauce. They said they plan to treat it like their Alien and Predator lines.

There will be two different lines running at the same time. One Classic. One Modern.

They said that they don't have Charlton Heston's likeness rights at the moment... but are working on it. Frankly, I can give or take getting Taylor or other humans in the line. I want some damn dirty apes. From both film series.

Hopefully 70's Era Clothing Cornelius and Zira will be near the top of the list. :D

Plus a bit of a tease of the Dawn of POTA Caesar that I realized I hadn't posted yet.

They revealed it in a video from the feet to the head. But thankfully a few people have put together a pic.

The Dawn figures are intended to hit the month before the Classic figures. More at Toy Fair!
