I saw this review of Maurice the orangutan from the Planet of the Apes, maybe some of the primate collectors will find this figure interesting.

In the movie I think the orangutan was very well done and seemed the most believable out of all the apes both in acting, rendering and anatomy.  The chimps were somewhat humanized in their design (slightly weird looking) but the orangutan looked very accurate.

The model is poseable and can be placed in a knuckle walk, the sculpting is quite good as well especially on the face.

It is interesting that the dewlap under the chin is rubbery so when the head is rotated there is no gap as the skin moves with the head.
