While Imaginext isn’t one of my primary collections, I couldn’t resist some of the blind bag series and some of the DC figures. I finally found a series 4 Space Ape the other day. For some reason the idea of a gorilla in a space suit just made me chuckle.
So when I opened the package and saw this….
…I was disappointed. With the face shield opaque, you couldn’t see that a monkey was in the space suit, which killed the humor. Then I remembered that I customize figures and that I could fix this.
A few minutes with the exacto knife and it was all fixed. The fact that the gun looks a lot like a banana was a nice touch.
My collection of Blind Bag figures seems like an old 60’s Hanna Barbara cartoon. “Space Ape and his friends, XR-9 and Paul the Bigfoot, roam the galaxy in search of adventures and hijinks!” These toys are just plain fun.
