Everything we know about Mego’s plans for Planet of the Apes


Last night, in a Mego Ambassadors live stream, Marty Abrams himself announced in a pre-recorded message that Mego had signed a deal for the Planet of the Apes license.

This brings a lot of joy to a large percentage of Mego collectors who have lobbied for a return to the forbidden zone since the company reappeared at the toy aisles in 2018.

While details are still coming together, here is what we currently know:

  • The license includes not only 8″ figures but the 14″ format as well.
  • Mego President Joel Rosenzweig has stated they Mego plan to go deep into character selection
  • Unlike the previous attempt by Diamond Select Toys a decade earlier, Mego seems to have more choices than just the first movie.
  • It is not known if the TV series is included at this time.

Details and reveals are sure to follow. Stay tuned Mego Maniacs!
