MonsterArts King Kong is readying for kongquest


The Kong that kongquered the world! More monkey than you could throw a barrel at!

Tamashii Nations has released a preview for the upcoming S.H.MonsterArts King Kong. The new photos show off Kong's three interchangeable faces in addition to demonstrating the figure's poseability.

The MonsterArts King Kong, who fitting first appeared at NYCC 2012, initially underwhelmed me partly (well, mostly...) because the design was based on the character's look from the Peter Jackson remake. While I'm still not a fan of the design, the figure seems spectacular. Kong seems to pose fairly well besides having a good number of display options. The figure features a closed-mouth grimacing face (standard), a really cool roaring face, and an amusing playful face. I imagine the options will enable some really fun photos.

Bandai's S.H.MonsterArts line seems to continually be improving. It may have started with a pretty good Godzilla figure (reviewed) but the line has grown with some fairly bold steps. The inclusion of King Kong conceivably opens the door to new possibilities, although I suspect that the line will only incorporate the most famous of non-Godzilla kaiju. That said, if Cloverfield 2 ever sees production, I'm curious whether that monster may warrant an inclusion.
