Lori thought the Planet of the Apes Monopoly game released last year (featuring "retro art" by Dave Perillo) would be more fun if the cardboard cages and corrals were replaced by actual corrals and cages. To that end, she came up with some files to 3D-print game pieces using a 3D printer! Her files are available for download now from the Monopoly 3D page, along with photos and images showing the settings and other instructions.

The press release:

AFTER 50 YEARS, APES FANS STILL HAVE QUESTIONS!

Ever wonder what became of those giant Scarecrows? How about those oak trees Taylor saw at the top of that mesa? Do you want to know what was shot and not used? Want the dirt on shots planned but not filmed?

In LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! author John OCallaghan answers these questions by sharing his life-long journey to find the exact filming locations for Franklin J. Schaffner's classic 1968 film, PLANET OF THE APES—including the recent discovery that several key sites in the badlands of Utah haven't been touched by Man (or Ape) since the crew finished shooting in 1967.

Incredible discoveries and previously unknown research about the work of filmmaker Franklin J. Schaffner provide clarity and humor to the history before, during and after the three-month shoot of Planet of the Apes.

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! features a wealth of more than 150 color photos. A must-have volume for every fan of PLANET OF THE APES or the history of film production. 206 Pages, 6x9 Trade Paperback, ISBN 978-1-64440-548-2

RESERVE YOUR COPY TODAY!
