In 1974, a company by the name of The ADDAR Plastics Co managed to snag the license for a series of plastic model kits based upon the Planet of the Apes franchise. I haven't managed to find out very much about the Addar Company itself, other than it was the short-lived brainchild of an ex-Aurora employee by the name of Abe Shikes. They produced kits including Evel Knievel, Jaws , and the Scene in a Bottle line, but today ADDAR are mostly remembered for their Apes kit line, in which they emulated the style of the AURORA figure kits with character sculpts on dioramic bases. Sadly, Addar never enjoyed true success and soon went into liquidation. ADDAR's second wave of Apes kits featured three kit-in-a-bottle dioramas, which appear to have reached the stores both home and abroad, but in far fewer numbers.Even back in the'70s, these three kits would have been hard to find. Each of the dioramas (Cornfield Round up, Jail Wagon, and Tree house) featured a small 1/32nd-scale plastic kit of the main focus of attention, along with a number of cardboard cut-out figures that were all, once assembled and painted, housed inside a plastic bottle. It was an interesting idea, but executed in a somewhat underwhelming and lacklustre manner, but they remain fun items nonetheless. This piece has been opened and the box shows wear. The contents look to be 100% complete and un-assembled, although a corner on one of the bottle halves is broken (see pictures).
