Does it look like any of the Kong plushes in these auctions?

I do, but not really in a good way. I've always really disliked those cheap, gimmicky toys, even if they're aimed at kids. Guess it's just a personal thing... I much prefer more general, less specific figures.

Man oh man, I had that first one as a kid. Peter Jackson's King Kong conveniently came just in time for Christmas. Funny enough, I remember there being an entire aisle of those things at this sketchy local wholesale/discount store a few months later as well. I kid you not, like 100+ Kongs. It was like that Buzz Lightyear scene in Toy Story 2.

I now have a reason to actually check my Walmart's toy section and not just glance through it.

As expected, based on their quality. A bit weird they're not gonna hit TRU, but hey, maybe other companies will spring up.

You are correct, the head has a swivel joint! New image:

Found 'Em!!! The Helicopter w/ Pilot set, & the Attack Boat w/ Pilot were both at the Huntsville TX Wal-Mart today! $15 each, not bad at all. No big apes to be seen, but I imagine they'll pop up soon... :)

My gf had the camera. We can go back tomorrow and snap some polaroids...

That means I might actually find them unlike the 2014 toys.

Unless you don't have a Wal-Mart near you - which is kinda hard, in the US...

Dare I say I really like this toy line and wish we could've gotten some human/vehicles with the Godzilla 2014 line?

What we got was good, but yeah, more of a full-on kid's line might've been smart. More like the destruction zone, less like the dumb gimmick toys.

I'm actually really liking that Kong. He's probably gonna be the 'must have' figure for this movie, unless Bandai has any surprises with MMS/SHMA.

Those two scale perfectly if you ask me. That Kong really looks great next to the Jakks Godzilla. I'll definitely pick up one now. That Kong and Godzilla are scaled roughly similar as they were in 62.
