None of these guns appeared in Planet of the Apes. Those are just Tommy guns and lever action rifles.

The movie featured modified M1 carbines.


#3

The original POTA rifles were supposedly M1 carbines encased in a lumpy stock which looked more like potatoes than firearms.


#4

I'm sorrybut i must disagree. the greatest toy ever made was the Mattel Guerrilla Booby Trap from 1963.


#5

Do not taunt the rifle monkey.


#6

You misunderstand. This is a toy tie-in for the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes due out this May.


#7

I can't wait for the Monkey masked Bank Robbers crime spree!!


#8

Wow, what year is this? I at least had the mask. I think I'd remember the gun better if I had that too.


#9

Also, needs more club. (and "man-catcher"):


#10

Surplus Halloween masks + unsold G. I. Joe inventory = product tie-in.

Face it, haters -- somebody got a promotion for this idea.


#11

You'll get my monkey rifle when you pry it from my cold, dead paws, you damn dirty apes!!


#12

Triggering PTSD in Vietnam Vets for 30 years!


#13

That image is basically America in a nutshell.


#14

I disagree as well....but this was the greatest toy ever made:
The Evel Kneivel Stunt Cycle


#15

I remember cranking that sucker up... It was pretty much indestructible as well.


#16

Obligatory GTA V reference:


#17

Johnny Seven OMA tells those damn dirty apes to suck it.


#18

Wow. So gun.
Did Homer J. Simpson design that?


#19

I had a plastic PPSH with a drum magazine that was actually a drum. Pulling the trigger made it go bap-bap-bap-bap-bap from the magazine.

It was an odd choice for a toy since this was a Soviet gun.

I was soooo disappointed when I learned the guerrilla does not equal gorilla... It made the news reports about armed "gorillas" attacking ____ so very boring.
