This listing is for what I believe ( from my research ) to be the vinyl Ape mask that came with the Mattel Planet of the Apes Tommy-Burst machine gun toy set from the early to mid 1970's. It may also have been part of the similar Mattel Planet of the Apes Rapid Fire Rifle toy set from the same period. It is used and somewhat mis-shaped from years of storage with other stuff placed on top of it. The elastic band that would hold the mask on your head is missing and the hole for the band on the left ear ( right ear as you view the first photo ) is broken through. I don't see any other tears in the vinyl and the vinyl remains pliable and not brittle. It measures approx. 8 inches by 8 inches. Perhaps there is a way to restore the shape to the original appearance, but I will not attempt that. I understand the mask ( and gun ) are very hard to find in any condition, appearing on ebay only once every few years. I am not the original owner, as this came out of an estate and is offered as is.Buyer pays shipping, which for this listing is $5.50 for insured USPS first class mail with delivery confirmation.
