It's taken around seven months, but I've finally amassed a small army of Gorilla Suit Guys. My original aim was to collect 101 of them, but after a miscount I ended up with 99 (a nice round number).

My thanks go to everybody who helped me build the collection, as annoying as I've been. I plan on doing something practical with all of these figures - I have an idea brewing as I speak.

Hello!

A Planets of the Apes diorama would be a nice use for them. :classic:

Gorillas gotta eat.  And 99 would eat a lot.

I have to admit, with some of the Collectible Mini Figs you think "That'd make a good army builder!".  The gorilla suit guy...  not at the very top of that list!

Great shots though, very impressive when all formed up like that  :classic:

I agree with Rumble Strike, I wood not have thought about collecting these guys in bulk, but now I'm curious to see what you have in mind.

That's a lot of apes to go ape over.    :classic:

Maybe a Planet of the Apes meet Star Wars.

Fortunately Elves, Spartans, Dwarves etc. aren't my thing; I remember how hard it was to get a Spartan when S2 came out. Part of the appeal for collecting so many Gorillas was that initially they weren't very popular, although I liked them from the beginning - it also helped that there were four in a box.
