Star Ace Toys have announced the next addition in their DeFo Real series of stylised releases in the form of the Man-Ape from the opening act of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. If you have seen (nay, experienced) this film then this sequence will instantly recallable and is one of the film’s most iconic narratives.
The release will start shipping out in November of this year but in the meantime, check out the full release statement from Star Ace :
Star Ace’s highly successful Deformed Real line of figures adds another entry to the 2001: A Space Odyssey series. The film opens with a group of apes encountering the mysterious black monolith which profoundly changes their behavior. This Defo Real Man-Ape figure captures a significant moment where the apes uses a bone as a tool for the first time. This original detailed sculpt depicts the Man-Ape in a frenzy as he beats a bone against the skeleton of his prey. This figure is approximately 15 cm tall and comes with a realistic diorama base for display.
Do let us know your thoughts on the release and if you’re a fan of the line down in the comments below. Equally, if this line really isn’t doing anything for you then we’d love to know why.
We recently worked on a full gallery and review for 2 other DeFo real figures in Pennywise & Jason Voorhees which you can catch in a special double-feature down below.
