An excellent example of the UK variant, orange carded Planet of the Apes, Cornelius, 8" action figure.
The Bubble is still sealed securely onto the backing card, making this figure mint and factory sealed. The bubble is completely in tact, and completely in shape.
The card is in very good condition, with no major damage. Most notably, the card has a light crease (no print loss) on the top right corner, and there is the remains of a partly removed price label on the front. Other than that, and the obvious but very light fraying of the edges, the packaging is in remarkably good shape for its age.
Trying to age this item has been difficult. The only printed year (on the front and back) is 1967, yet my research suggests this is a 1974 release. You would need to do a little investigating of your own to confirm this.
What I do believe - and please correct me if I'm mistaken - is that this item was produced by Apjac in Hong Kong, but packaged as Bradgate for the UK, and Mego for the US. Later, the UK version was repackaged as Palitoy, making this UK version the early one - again, correct me if I'm wrong.
