Mego Peter Burke Planet of the Apes


Peter Burke (item # 50900/9) ( assortment # 50902) packed 5 per case

The two humans created for the second set of Planet of the Apes figures are based very closely on the television series actors. Mego made terrific representations of James Naughton, who played Peter Burke, and Ron Harper, as Alan Virdon. Like all of the figures in Mego's POTA line, these characters are found on both Type 1 (metal joint) and Type 2 (plastic joint) bodies. Burke and Virdon wear identical terrycloth pants and the same brown or burgundy moccasins worn by both Cornelius and Galen. Peter Burke wears a brown stretchy pullover shirt and a burlap vest.
