Apes figures

My 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' figures by NECA arrived yesterday.
Caesar, Koba and Maurice. I'm pretty excited to get some figures from a movie I'm really proud to be a part of. I think I'm the first in the Animation Department to get these guys.

Caesar, Koba and Maurice.

I pre-ordered them from BIGBADTOYSTORE.COM. They're licensed by NECA and I must say they are pretty cool.
They're nice and weighty, pretty standard 6inch figure size. Maurice is my favourite, all his hanging fur is a softer rubber so it moves a little with the articulation points. All the hands are made from the same material so you can fit the spears and book props into their swappable grips. Details on the spears are great and the character likeness for all of them is superb. Although they haven't noticed that Koba is actually missing a finger on his right hand. That's a hard detail to pick up on.

Really happy with them and now I have something interesting to 3d scan.

Cheers, Aidan.
