Let Us Gaze Into...The Past!

1975. The Planet of the Apes. Sets, horses and vehicles we could only dream about getting. I mean, $15.79 for a tree house/fort? Outrageous!

Seriously, in the wake of the Mego Star Trek re-issues they are now set to do Planet of the Apes. This picture is from a page in a 1975 Christmas catalog at a great website called Welcome to WishbookWeb.com (http://wishbookweb.com/). It shows many different Christmas catalogs page by page, and not only can you see the toys at these amazing pre-inflation prices, but by looking at the clothes and 'kitsch' you can really remember what life was like back then.
