    Plaid Stallions Toy-Ventures: Planet of the Apes Playset by Multiple





    This week's Toy-Ventures takes us back to the year 3978, a time ruled by Apes. We look at one of the more memorable Planet of the Apes Playsets, while that's usually synonymous with Mego, this is by Multiple Toymakers.

    We discuss some of Multiple's more popular toy offerings as well as why exactly Doctor Zaius is wearing a blue outfit.

    I like playsets, so I really enjoyed this though I don't recall these at all from my childhood. Bagged figurines or animals never captured my attention, but adding in the diorama pieces and buildings looks great. That Battle of '76 set is sweet.

    The deluxe POTA set is tantalizing.

    Thanks for sharing.

    There's much variation across the different versions of the sets too. The hand-painting resulted in some wild/bizarre results, some with no paint at all (hardest to find and only available in the Mini-Set), in addition to six colors of horses, and different contents from box to box. The tree bridge is hard to find in good condition; they are often warped/melted and broken.

    The proper thing to do here is, secure the Deluxe Set, then combine it with the One Million B.C. set for Ape City awesomeness!

    Great video. I love how you switch back and forth between giving perhaps unkown info on well-known toys and showcasing lesser known toys like these. Maybe its not intentional, ,but its appreciated all the same. These seem really cool now as idon't think kid me would've wanted them.

    I wonder if I might have seen these as a kid. If I had, I would have likely dismissed them, preferring to pressure my mom's paltry pennies toward Megos. Thus having no memories of them. It seems we did get a wonderful selection of toys in Philly so I wonder how many times this scenario played out.
    WANTED - Solid-Boxed WGSH's, C.8 or better.

    That's been a rumor associated with the UK Empire HCF Mini-Flocked figures for years, as well as being sold in small counter display boxes. First I've heard anyone mentioning that with the MTM product… interesting.

    Speaking of the mini flocked, I keep thinking those had to be timed with the Palitoy releases.

    I have the Lone Ranger and Tonto from the set you showed, and I always kind of wondered where they came from. I know Multiple Toymakers made Justice League sets in the late 60s, after the Ideal sets had come and gone. I would love to get those some day, but they are pretty rare and pricey I believe.

    I'm a fan of "army men" type figures. I think beyond actual army men, space men, knight, cowboys and Indians sets I had, the PPC Activated Super Heroes are what really clinched loving the format for me. I picked up that canister full of Incredibles 2 figures at the Disney Store last year, and man, I love them!

    Thanks again for the wonderful videos. I love it when I see them pop up on my screen. I can't express how much joy and fun distraction you bring via these.
