Slay Riding…

While no one should be sitting on Santa’s lap this year, we think kids would avoid this particular St. Nick surrogate under any circumstances. Next to The Grinch, he’s the least desirable creature you’d want dropping down your chimney and sniffing around for your cookies.

Even so, there are those of us who have a taste for “Alt Xmas” decorating and NECA Collectibles obliges with this manageable manifestation of villainy, a seasonal version of The Fiend.

Are We Not Men? NECA Limited Edition “Apes” Lawgiver Statue

NECA’s Lawgiver Statue strikes an imposing vision over their stunning Ape City diorama
Dear (Juris) Prudence…
The extraordinary sculpt work produced for NECA’s (National Entertainment Collectibles Association) classic Planet of the Apes (1968) action figures truly imbues them with the personality of their on-screen analogs and is what makes them some of my favorite collectibles. This week the toy company brings another key piece to original PotA fans in the form of the The Lawgiver Statue. The visage of the wizened orangutan was featured at NECA’s New York International Toy Fair 2015 booth as part of the jaw dropping diorama pictured below.

At Toy Fair 15, NECA presented an amazing setting for their classic “Planet of the Apes” action figures.
Goin’ to Ape City, Gonna Have Some Fun…
At a foot tall, the highly detailed resin statue is scaled proportionally to the toy maker’s classic Apes 6” action figures. As you can see it is a perfect compliment to any Ape City tableau. Word to the wise…, it’s expressly limited to a single run of 1700 pieces.

NECA’s 6″ Dr. Zaius action figure doles out a few rules of his own.

SkeletonPete Says…
As an early teen “monster kid” I well remember the Lawgiver statue being a prominent prop in publicity shots of actor Maurice Evans sporting make-up man John Chambers’ then state of the art prosthetics. I was apparently impressed enough to paint this fairly large Dr. Zaius portrait which I recently discovered during a home basement “dig.”
