Cipsa released five Planet of the Apes figures for Mego in Mexico, including Cornelius, Dr. Zaius, General Urko, General Ursus, and Bill ("the lost astronaut").


Unlike their American counterparts, the Cipsa apes did not come with pants.

The Cipsa generals and Bill came with rifles. Almost identical to the standard Planet of the Apes M-16, the Cipsa rifles lack detail on the grip.

General Ursus' tunic and cuffs came in two different material: a matte/smooth material and a shiny "lizard skin" material.

Bill, "the lost astronaut," was produced and sold by Mego distributor Cipsa in Mexico. He is the rarest Cipsa figure and very difficult to find complete and all original. Unlike the Mego humans, Bill came with a rifle.

Bill shares a head sculpt with Mego's Alan Verdon.
