NECA Planet of the Apes Custom Repaints

So far I love what NECA toys has been doing with the Planet of the Apes licence, and I sure hope there is no end in sight. There’s a billion-and-a-half characters that I hope they get around to making, which means it may be a good long while before we get some serious repaints; something NECA has been known to do. So instead of waiting around for them to get to what I want, I just went right ahead and made my own.  So without further ado…

I’m planning a lot more apes in the future, so stay tuned for more!

  1. Hello, what type of paint did you use for the silver lines on the Gorilla soldiers?? Do you know if the craftsmart markers work well?? i am thinking about doing this to one of my gorillas but am not sure what to use.
