Everyone loves talking apes, don't they?
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes hasn’t even come to theaters yet, but the film’s sequel has already been greenlit by 20th Century Fox (with the announced release date being July 29, 2016). The sequel is a long way off, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has yet to make it to our eyeballs, but if you need your Apes fix now, you can check out these cool figurines from NECA.
The company has debuted the new line of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes figurines, featuring not just Caesar and the action-ready apes in war paint, but also ape characters from past Planet of the Apes films as well. Some of the figurines you can hope to see are Caesar, Maurice, Koba, Cornelius and other favorites. That’s not all NECA has prepared for Apes fans. Dread Central states that there will be a huge line of Apes collectibles aside from figures. What can you expect from the line? Apparel, gifts, accessories and more.
The release of the Apes line will coincide with the summer release of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which will surely lead huge fans to consider zipping right to the toy store after seeing the film in theaters. However, you don’t have to wait until this summer to see what the figures look like. Check out this YouTube video released by NECA featuring the figurine of Caesar.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will be released in theaters July 11, 2014. The film stars Andy Serkis as Caesar, the leader of the defiant apes. The film also stars Gary Oldman, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Keri Russell, Jason Clarke, Toby Kebbell, Enrique Muriciano and Kirk Acevedo. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is directed by Matt Reeves, who has also been tapped to direct the untitled sequel.
