NECA introduced a new line of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes figures with series 1 including Caesar, Koba, and Maurice. If you enjoyed Rise of the Planet of the Apes, then we expect that this new film will also be very entertaining both fans of the franchise as well as newcomers.
Let us squash the rumor that Caesar and Koba share the same mold. They do not. Both figures feature all new sculpts and accessories, and Koba is also about a quarter inch shorter than Caesar.
Availability: May 2014
Sculpt & Paint:
Caesar features an all new sculpt with fur covering his body. The fur is all texture sculpted on and he has brown skin on his ears, bottom of the feet, hands, chest, mouth, forearms, right bicep and tricep, back, and upper buttocks. He has white paint covering his face and white and red lines on his chest and chin.
His articulation is limited due to the sculpt and design blocking proper movement of the joints.
The paint scheme is outstanding on this figure are very life-like. He is painted in a black and brown.
Ball-jointed head, swivel-hinged shoulders, swivel-hinged elbows, ball-jointed wrists, ball-jointed abs, swivel-hinged hips, swivel-hinged knees, ball-jointed ankles.
Interchangeable hands, spear.
Caesar is an excellent figure but does have some flaws. The hips don’t articulate the way they should, but we are very happy with the overall look of this figure.
It looks like NECA sacrificed articulation for quality, and depending on what you prefer, it’s up to you to decide if they made the right call. But we feel that the quality is worth some flaws.
