PLANET OF THE APES METAL LUNCHBOX from Aladdin Industries 1974. This very rare R-7 embossed lunchkit is based on the short-lived 14-epsiode TV series on CBS. Storyline: Based on the original 1968 POTA movie - Hurled 1,100 years into the future, astronauts Alan Virdon and Pete Burke find themselves in a society where humans are subservient to super-intelligent apes.Their situation is made more bearable by Galen (played here by Roddy McDowall), a young sympathetic chimp who comes to question whether humans are, indeed, an inferior species. Another artistic masterpiece by AL art director Elmer Lehnhardt with his awesome use of color and characters. This is some truly incredible artwork! One of our all-time favorite TV-based kits and a hard one to find in this condition. Simply a must-have for any fan of this ongoing sci-fi franchise! Condition: Box is complete and correct (including the original wire thermos holder). Box has no blemishes to the raised areas so typical with these vintage embossed boxes on front panel with a few scratches on flat portion of front - with a few tiny blemishes on back. Nice clean rim panels all around. Light rim wear on front - a tad heavier on back - with tiny dimples on lower right corner of back panel. Inside is very clean overall - with no prior ownership markings.
Box in overall Excellent plus C-8.5 condition. Thermos decals are clean overall with minor rubbings in overall Excellent C-8 condition.
