POTA

http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Beneath_the_Planet_of_the_Apes#See_Also

Ape weapons.

All based on the two original movies, no mutant humans please.

Don't forget we need Ape artillery, they had at least one cannon in the ape army, ape wagons, the cage wagon and the cargo wagon, and ape horse cavalry. Not to mention Gorillas, Orangutans, and Chimpanzees in male and female.

It's a huge potential and while a few have been done in 12" GI Joe / Action man size, 8" from Mego and rather large 28mm and even 54mm none have been done in 1/72nd scale. They would be great fighting against the humans from the movie, role playing games, and even wargame against other animals / humans / creatures from the Forbidden Zone.

I think five sets would get us most everything we would ever need for POTA.

Ape Infantry, a dozen Gorilla combat poses, 48 pieces.
Ape Artillery, with a gun, limber, and four horses and Gorilla crew, and mounted Gorilla General.
Ape Horse mounted Cavalry with 12 different Gorilla poses and four horse poses.
Ape Wagons, with the cage and cargo wagons with two horses each.
Ape City Dwellers with the Orangutans, Chimpanzees, and one male, one female humans, including a mounted Orangutan, and Chimpanzee, and seated Apes of each of the three types.

I know I would buy a lot of these.

I'm hoping Linear-A's upcoming "Neanderthal vs Denisova Human vs Homo Sapiens" set #037 could be used for the far future post-apocalyptic humans from Charlton Heston's Planet of The Apes

Barrow Wights would be excellent, my favourite characters. I would hope they had the look of ghosts of bronze age warriors (northern Europe bronze age, not Aegean); some sort of fantasy creation would leave me cold.

Yes, Barrow Wights would be useful, and an interesting subject for a sculptor.

Whether they are a 'favourite character' might depend on whether you are hanging around an ancient Iron Age hill fort - of which there are a few not too far from where I live in Southern England - after dark on a misty night: potentially spooky!
