Eighty years ago, in 1933, the film King Kong introduced the concept of a giant gorilla captured on a South pacific island rampaging through New York City. This is why it is considered the “ancestor of all kaiju movies” today. This pivotal special-effects film showcased the work of stop-motion animation pioneer Willis O’Brien and deeply influenced the creators of Japan’s first kaiju film, “Godzilla” (1954).
King Kong was remade in 2005 with state-of-the-art digital effects by the New Zealand-born director of the “The Lord of the Rings” series, Peter Jackson. Jackson harnessed the technologies he had perfected on the “The Lord of the Rings” to re-create King Kong, the 7.5 meter terror of Skull Island.
This all new, super articulated Kong figure features a multitude of joints, three alternate faces and an alternate hand with log! Sculpting was overseen by Jackson’s longtime friend and collaborator Richard Taylor, the founder of the world-renowned special effects company WETA Workshop. Made of PVC & ABS, for supior strength and durability.
