Original Motion Picture 
Costume Displays
Click on the thumbnail images posted below of these two characters for more amazing pictures!

Figures can be made to display replica or actual "screen-used" wardrobe,
although ORIGINAL wardrobe is becoming increasingly more scarce.

The costumes displayed on these two mannequins are the actual costumes used in the first Planet of the Apes film.
The jacket for Dr. Zaius is one of the two Maurice Evans jackets known to still exist. 
It was only used  in the first two ape films, before finding its way into a private collection back in 1973, where it remained until
making its way to us in 1999.  So hopefully somewhere out there is one left that John Houston wore in BATTLE 
and Booth Colman wore for the TV series.  So keep your eyes open, folks!  You never know where it may turn up!

And speaking of Booth Colman, the hands on the Zaius mannequin are actually Mr. Colman's. 
We invited him out to the studio for a day back in June of 2000 for a lifecasting session and an interview.  He's a delightful man 
and has many wonderful stories to tell, especially about his friendships with Maurice Evans and Boris Karloff.

The Honorius costume is the very one that actor James Daly (Tyne and Tim's dad) wore for his role as the tribunal's prosecuting attorney. 
Unlike Maurice's Zaius coat which still has the original "glyphs" attached, Honorius' glyphs are missing, so we have replicated them for this in-progress restoration display.  Most of the original POTA costumes had their "glyphs" removed during production of the final film, "BATTLE for the Planet of the Apes".  Collectors who have original costumes with 'glyphs" still attached should consider themselves very fortunate because pieces in that condition are extremely rare.
