ONE OF A KIND, made as a prototype for the movie Planet of the Apes, Twentieth Century Fox. Axtell puppets are seen in many T. Church puppet programs use them too! It's best to store him in cool dark place when not in use and to Armor All the latex occasionally.
Gorilla is Very Very Good ++ Collectible Condition. Only one flaw I notice, see pics of hairline.
Or, I would mark it as excellent. Used once at VBS and he looked so real, He terrified the Pre-K kids. A couple kids started howling when he popped up with the other puppets. I should have had the other puppet introduce him as a new friend but I was new.He wouldn't scare older children. Not for Pre K ministry.
Heck, they are scared of Santa and many toys that move. He is clean, without spots or blemishes. He is in condition that he was received from Axtell. He has been in storage ever since, only got him out to take pictures.
Today I noticed that you can see the edge of the starting of his hair. If I were to keep him, I would research what glue would successfully work.
What to do with him is up to you when you receive him. Beautiful Craftsmanship, Never seen anything like him. He was made as a prototype for Planet of the Apes, Twentieth Century Fox. What I think about this puppet..
He looks like he's sitting on my bed laughing at me as I type.. Time caused the flaw in his hairline.I would keep him if I weren't on my way to becoming a minimalist.
