VINTAGE 1974 PLANET OF THE APES VILLAGE PLAYSET. 1974 MEGO Planet of the Apes VILLAGE Play Set...
The condition is Used from a smoke-free home! I can find NO rips in the plastic... The top side of the case doesn't want to stay straight... Probably from storage, so the snap doesn't want to stay closed.
The Village needs to be cleaned but it's just residue sand/dirt... Nothing disgusting like mold or mouse droppings! All the fold down/fold up secret doors are in working order with their latches. The original table is included.
Closed case measures 15" x 11" x 5 1/2" at the bottom and 3" at the top. I do have Mego Planet of the Apes action figures in another listing. From "Collectible of the Week"... One terrific and much beloved Mego Planet of the Apes toy from this era is the Planet of the Apes Village, a giant 3 foot play set, headquarters for all Planet of the Apes 8 inch action figures.
Truth be told, this play set is highly reminiscent of Mego's Batcave play set, but what the heck. The Planet of the Apes village folds down into a small carry case, and also opens up into this huge diorama of Ape City as seen in the 1968 film starring Charlton Heston and Roddy McDowall. There's a "secret entrance" to Ape City, plus plenty of accouterments.
These include a "laboratory table" (for dissecting humans, no doubt.), a flip-up "weapons bench, " a "capture net and carry pole, " a "detention pen, " "3 control sticks" and 3 rifles. When fully assembled (with a green mat bridging the two ends,) the play set is a pretty impressive thing, but I love the fact you can fold it up and carry it with you so easily. The play set itself is made up of laminated cardboard, decorated with some expressive art from the Apes saga (including vistas of the Statue of Liberty and Ape City itself).
I'm not sure how much kids of today would love this retro play set, but for me the Planet of the Apes village just absolutely takes me back to the disco decade, and some great times spent in the company of Zira, Cornelius, Zaius, Urko and the rest.
