Super Sized Kong: Skull Island POP! Movies Vinyl Toy Figure

While the hype and anticipation grows for Kong: Skull Island, Funko has given fans a treat in toy form with the release of their super sized Pop! Vinyl toy figure.

Funko Description:
What you’re looking at is some monster from a bygone era… This 6” super-sized Kong Pop! will tower over the rest of your collection!

The toy is a throwback to ’33 version, says Jordan Vogt-Roberts:

If anything, our Kong is meant to be a throwback to the ’33 version. [Kong] was a movie monster, so we worked really hard to take some of the elements of the ’33 version, some of those exaggerated features, some of those cartoonish and iconic qualities, and then make them their own…We created something that to some degree served as a throwback to the inspiration for what started all of this, but then also [had] it be a fully unique and different creature that — I would like to think — is fully contained and identifiable as the 2017 version of King Kong. I think there are very modern elements to him, yet hopefully he feels very timeless at the same time.

You can find the Kong: Skull Island POP! vinyl toy figure in January 2017.
