A Godzilla and Kong crossover should sell plenty of toys hopefully.

Can’t imagine more from JAKKS if Playmates has license, they cater to the same market. Hopefully they’re good, Playmates can do pretty good stuff but I was happy with JAKKS sculpting and would love a Kong companion from them. I fear Playmates Kong may look more like Lanard.

So the main toy license went to Playmates? That's kind of odd, why not just keep it with Jakks?

As long as NECA and Tamashii Nations makes a 6 inch Monsterverse Kong, I'm good.

Keep in mind the tweet did say Jakks, Bandai, Neca, and Tamashii nations likely to follow. I could see playmates doing gimmick toys, Jakks makes the 3.5 and 12 inch size toys (maybe skipping the 6 inch scale), and the rest are self explanatory.

What about SHMA? Expensive poop but still, it'd be nice to see.

Kong, his adult design to be more specific.

I'd like to give the benefit of the doubt since they did do the Peter Jackson kong, but that was back in 2005 of course

Their TMNT lines have declined to near McDonalds Happy Meal qualities. Selling non-articulated, half painted lumps of plastic for full price.

I’m sure a tent pole blockbuster film would be different but you never know with these guys.

Due to legal rights, I doubt it would happen, but even if it was poor quality, I would kill for a bandai vinyl of the upcoming Kong. I realized I can't stand hard plastic toys for some reason.

I don't this he will look any different now that he is an "adult".

I imagine Kong's changes will be similar to Godzilla, relatively simply, maybe beefier in muscle mass, some new scars, possibly some grey to his fur.

Would kill to have a fighting game that has Kong in it.

By Pipeworks, preferably. Not whoever made the PS4 tank control game.
