Planet of the Apes first burst onto the silver screen in 1968 and went on to spawn a science fiction media franchise. Weta Digital contributed visual effects to the latest films in the series: Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and War for the Planet of the Apes - all three released to critical acclaim. Now, Wētā Workshop is proud to launch its own exclusive collectibles, celebrating 50 years of this iconic sci-fi franchise.

Most collectibles projects at Weta Workshop are collaborative: they involve concept design, physical sculpting, digital sculpting, model making, mold making, and painting, to name a few. I really enjoy that process of working together to achieve an incredible final piece.

Steven Saunders, Sculptor

Please note: images are of a pre-production prototype. Minor variations will occur.


Wētā Workshop’s high-quality collectibles are designed by the very same artists and technicians who work on our film projects. It takes 400-800 hours to design, sculpt, model make, mold, and paint the prototype for each new piece. Whether it be a prop replica, beautiful environment or iconic character, we treat our collectibles with the same level of care and attention to detail that we bring to our film work.
