    Blonde Zira?

    Could there have been a blonde Zira? According to this picture taken at a toy fair in Mexico It pretty much raises my eyebrow. Unless somebody could identify her, we got some real problems Houston!

    Looks like it may be a Blonde Zaius head on a Zira or female body. Blonde Zaius have been out there and they are usually fades of the Orange. Bigger pic would be a lot more helpful...but going on that pic it may be a Blonde Zaius head on a female body.

    Looks to me like someone just painted their Zira head for fun.

    Pic isn't great, but I'd go with re-paint… looks to be the expected brown paint on the underside of her head. Comparative to the other colors nearby, I'd guess orange over brown.

    I think I'll go with that answer. Wouldn't be great though.... If only for a little while...

    ^^ True, new Ape discoveries are awesome! [Pali's recent UK Space Apes prove they are still out there.]… and speaking of never seen Zira, I just welcomed her fine Mexican alter-ego into Ape City this week.

    Area under the chin is cut out...or it is a really BAD bootleg figure / head. If you can get a better pic that would be great.
