    That always irked me. One of the first tweaks I did as a collector was to put Penguin hands on the Falcon. Birds of a feather...

    I'm thinking a werewolf body might make a cool pota zaius figure actually.or even cornelius.

    I'd tend to agree with you that they just used the "Apes" hands for the Werewolf because they had access to them...

    Personally, I'm not holding out any hope that they'll actually reboot the "Apes" line-I just thought it'd be a nice idea if they would, but I'm certainly not going to hold my breath for it...

    I would hope that they'd make a more realistic Soldier Ape head, a color-accurate Zaius, and a General Ursus who isn't wearing an Aldo uniform. If they're just going to reproduce the original Mego figures, don't bother; I have the originals already.

    I'd love to see some new characters, also, like Nova, Mendez XXVI, Armando, Kolp, and the Lawgiver.

    I would like all of those, plus Julius, the jailkeeper (with a cigar)

    Strange that the Falcon would have hairy ape hands... Did they try to pass them off as feathers or something back in the day?

    It was strange that the Falcon had hairy ape hands, since Huggy Bear and Captain Dobey had regular brown human hands.
