Hot Toys’ Planet of the Apes Cosbaby line features characters from the classic film in baby form. “Cos” is short for costume, similar to cosplay, so the figures are babies in costumes. These figures are based on the original Planet of the Apes from 1968, and not from Tim Burton’s debacle of a remake released in 2001.
The film revolves around Taylor (Charlton Heston), an astronaut whose spacecraft travels over 2,000 years to an unknown planet. On that planet, there is a society of apes divided into various classes (gorillas – military; Orangutans – politicians; Chimpanzees – scientists). After being captured by the apes, Taylor attempts an escape, with the film culminating in one of the most classic endings ever.
