Behold what happens when you’ve had a little much Christmas cheer, and everybody went to bed. Apparently, I really had to have this inflatable Galen from Planet of the Apes, which totally checks out. Everyone needs an inflatable Roddy McDowall, right? Right?
Turns out this was like a series, and I borrowed this image from Hunter’s Planet of the Apes Archive (which is amazing, go there!) to see them all blown up.
We got a General Urko, Doctor Zaius and Galen; sadly no astronauts, but I don’t blame them.
I don’t think I’ll collect them all but this will be going in my Planet of the Apes display.
