Apexplorer. Canon X Winson Ma. Jungle


Heres a mini review since this guy is probably not on many of your 'must buy lists'. But I must say, WOW!

This figure is may be the coolest figure I have owned up to date. I absolutely love this guy. An ape head on a hot toys body with tons and tons of tools. Tons. A backpack, two sets of hands, a zip up fleece sweater, ski goggles, ice pick, walkie talkie, and more... And he comes with a 1/6 scale Canon EOS 30D with a EF-s 17-55mm f/2.8 IS lens. Coincidentally out the the vast sea of Canon lenses it could have been, this happens to be my current lens. This blew my mind a little bit and made me giddy to have a mini version of my camera. Yea I dont have a 30D, but still emoticon. The lens and battery grip disassemble exactly like their real life counterparts.

His articulation is great, when his puffy coat is off. But his elbows are not quite tight enough to stay put when the coat is on. I forgot to take pictures but I assure you the packaging is cool and collector friendly (except for a couple twisties). I was a little on the fence over his face, but being a big furry ape head, its just cool no matter what. Everything is in great shape and looks very detailed. Only problem was that a little metal tri-fold shovel broke at the hinge when I pulled it out of the plastic. The price was a little high but decent at 160, considering the amount of extras on this guy.

*I didnt do any color correction, and so some of the photos colors are a bit off. His suit is orange, not red as it appears in some. Also I put a P90 gun in there for fun. Its not his. Any additional pic requests are welcome!

WOW! This is the first time I've seen this figure. The detail is incredible. It does seem a little on the expensive side, though. Great mini review Master Monkey.

Though pricey, it sure looks like you really get your money's worth with this figure. He comes with so many accessories!

Glad you found him! Did you get it off eBay?

You can find it here at a fairly reasonable $160.

Im very happy with him. I dont really display my figures except for the jin-rohs, but this guy is sitting pretty at the top of the shelf.
