The first week of KONGTOBER concludes with this fun King Kong figure produced by Imperial Toys in 1985.
This figure is clearly based on the the original 1933 movie design rather than the 1976 release.
I really love this figure — it makes me smile every time I look at it because it is just plain goofy. It’s hard to envision this guy wreaking havoc on New York City except in a comical fashion.
What’s up monkey butt?
The only articulation on this figure are its shoulders, but it’s still a lot of fun to pose.
The bottom of the figure’s left foot has the Imperial logo and the words “Hong Kong.” Nothing like a Hong Kong King Kong!
Run away!!!! Or just point and laugh–your call.
“Don’t be alarmed, ladies and gentlemen. Those chains are made of chrome steel.” All month long, I will be showing off King Kong collectibles from my personal collection in a series called KONGTOBER, so if you’re a fan of King Kong and movie monsters, I think you’re going to like what you see.
Yeah this is MY Kong. This is the one I had as a kid.
Love this King Kong figure!
Imperial just made the coolest things and on the cheap at the time too.
