Super7 Planet of the Apes ReAction Figures unboxing gallery
Super7 has provided ComingSoon.net with the chance to unbox their newest lineup of six retro Planet of the Apes action figures as part of their ReAction Figures line. Check out the Super7 Planet of the Apes Wave 1 figures in the gallery below!
Based out of San Francisco, Super7 began as a toy magazine in 2001 and then a store in 2004. Since then their lines have expanded to include such nostalgic pop culture brands as Alien, G.I. Joe, Hellboy, Masters of the Universe, Robotech, Street Fighter and a re-introduction of the classic M.U.S.C.L.E. figures.
The first Planet of the Apes movie starring Charlton Heston opened in 1968 and became an iconic science fiction film with a now-classic twist ending. It branched out to become arguably the first true major studio sci-fi saga, with the equally-shocking Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970), the time travel installment Escape from the Planet of the Apes (1971), the socially relevant Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972) and the action-packed finale Battle for the Planet of the Apes (1973). A short-lived Planet of the Apes live-action TV series followed in 1974 for 14 episodes, along with 13 episodes of the animated series Return to the Planet of the Apes in 1975. The franchise lay dormant until 2001 with Tim Burton’s critically-maligned remake, Planet of the Apes, which led to 20th Century Fox rebooting the series in a new direction for the successful trilogy composed of Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011), Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) and most recently War for the Planet of the Apes (2017).
