King Kong, who made his film debut in 1933, is one of the most famous cinematic beasts of the last 80 years. Mezco has taken inspiration from the 1933 film, releasing King Kong of Skull Island articulated figure, standing 7" (18 cm) tall with over 25 points of articulation. Kong bears chest scars, just like in the film, with two interchangeable head sculpts and five interchangeable hands. Kong fans, be on the lookout for this one!
1933's King Kong, directed by Merian C. Cooper & Ernest B. Schoedsack and distributed by Radio Pictures, was one of the earliest monster films, then filmed in black and white film reels. The movie was a commercial and critical success, becoming a massive influence on monster movies to come and spawning several remakes. 2017's Kong: Skull Island is one such film, rebooting the franchise and integrating Kong into the Godzilla Monsterverse.
