Cornelius - Planet of the Apes on Ebay
Cornelius Planet of the Apes Mego Cornelius was released as part of Mego's Planet of the Apes action figure line in 1974.

The figure comes with dark-green and brown tunic with fur cuffs, as well as dark green tights and brown shoes. There are no accessories.

Actor Roddy McDowell had played the sympathetic part of Cornelius in the Planet of the Apes films, but he was also cast as Galen in the TV series; this must have been somewhat confusing to children of the time. What's more confusing is that the Cornelius and Galen action figures are the exact same figure! They were simply released in different series, in 1974 and 1975.
