31 Monster Toys #29: King Kong
After making a splash with its highly-detailed action figures based on artist Todd McFarlane’s comic book Spawn, McFarlane Toys branched out into other areas: sports collectibles, slutty fairy tale heroines, and eventually a long-running line of licensed horror characters collectively known as Movie Maniacs.
While most of the latter were based on relatively recent “slasher” characters such as Freddy Krueger, one notable outlier was this spectacular, oversized King Kong figure based on the 1933 original. It depicts Kong breaking free from the platform on which he was displayed to a Broadway audience. And somehow he’s already managed to snatch up a blonde in his paw!
