Vintage Mego 9: Planet of the Apes Forbidden Zone Trap

This week is all about one of my favourite Mego Playsets, the amazing Forbidden Zone Trap from the Planet of the Apes line.

We give a history of the set, it’s many fun features and also talk about whether the gift set may or may not exist.

For more information on the Planet of the Apes line, please visit the Mego Museum gallery page:
