    It’s Mego Monday!! Mego and Topps welcomes you back to the Planet of the Apes with Taylor and Zira! These exclusive figures are available for preorder for one week only!


    I dig Taylor's rifle.

    Not a big POTA guy, but I know this is a huge deal for fans of the series. Very happy for all of you that you finally get an official Mego Heston!

    Do you think we will see a mass-market release of Taylor (perhaps in his spacesuit)? This seems a highly-sought after character to make an exclusive...

    I agree... to make Taylor an exclusive is an insult to all Mego Apes collectors who have waited more than 40 years for him. It's one thing to order figures online, but it's quite another when the window to make such purchases is so small, and then made even smaller because of the ridiculously overpriced shipping charges Topps has for international orders.

    Just like the TMP Spock Mego from last week, here is another figure I have waited decades for only to see it appear and disappear with no means of adding it to my collection now or likely ever. Thanks a lot Topps and Mego.

    I think the primary focus should be on getting more Mego figures to retail and to make them more readily available like they were in the past. It's embarrassing to walk into pretty much any and every store imaginable and see a million-and-a-half Funko Pop "figures" but never one Mego. With the brands and licenses Mego has at its fingertips, they too could be saturating the market just like Funko with the catch being Mego's products would actually be good.

    I don't have any special insight but a space suit Taylor seems like a logical figure to be sold in the mass retailers.

    Neat Taylor. I do wish they had something better to show than a rough head sculpt. It comes off kinda shoddy even if it's the best they can do. Looks like a custom and I'm sure some people won't order it based on that.

    I don't know what the solution is for that since they probably don't have digital renders.

    i would really like the Taylor, but don't care about adding yet another Zira, if we knew she would be on the new body i might consider it. plus it's getting too pricey to order these every week. i would imagine most of them will arrive from china at the same time, so Topps should bundle the shipping

    The Taylor figure looks awesome. Love the head sculpt and the rifle. Glad to see Zira reissued too. Man... if the last three weeks is any indication of what's to come my wallet is in trouble. I've ordered them all so far. Really hope to see Nova and Aldo soon.

    I am glad I am not a POTA fan. Like TRDouble stated, "Whew." I could save myself some $$$. I already ordered 2 Captain Marvel, Black Adam and Kor. A space suit Taylor should be mass released. Give our Canadian and out of country collectors an opportunity to score Taylor. Mego and Topps really need to do something about the shipping so out fellow collectors don't get price gouged.
