    Please Help - MEGO WANTS YOU TO GO APE PHOTO - Authentic???

    Hello, I am a new member but I have collected MEGOs for a long time.
    My favorite line is POTA so I took a chance on this poster.
    Can anyone tell me whether this 11 X 17 inch POSTER is authentic or not?
    Any help would be appreciated.
    I am sorry for the title - I made a mistake and called it a photo.

    I have a reprint of this poster. the number written in on yours, just below the 20th century fox logo, looks to be hand written. on mine it is printed. not sure if that means yours is original or not

    Thank you for your reply.
    The number is NOT hand written.
    I can tell under magnification.
    The fourth photo down is the M under magnification.
    You can see the blue stops around it and there is an outline of white.
    I believe that MP1241 is the poster number.

    These repros have been sold for years in various sizes. Still fun though.

    Here are examples of the original Go Ape posters including the Mego version:

    The arced white line that goes horizontally towards the 20th Century Fox looks to be an indication that it is a repro. Unless that is an actual crease in the poster...it's a repro in my opinion. Hope that helps.
