    I prefer whichever is the closes thing to the 33 Kong.

    The one @SHINOBI03 took pics of a few back looks like him. Not sure which it is though.

    That new face on the right where he is showing his teeth doesn't even look like '33 Kong?

    The head he has on might be a take on the close-up scenes in '33 where they used the giant head instead of the stop motion?

    NECA's Kong is not the 33 one. It's a stylized version that looks like a cross between the 33 and Skull Island versions.

    It is weird. It’s nearly the 33’ version, with the film accurate heads, body proportions. It’s fur is far more realistic, features scars, and is in color. It’s like one step away from being a perfect 33’ Kong but they went a widely usable direction for it.

    Not exactly accurate body proportions. The original models were stockier and wider with shorter legs than NECA's version.

    New pictures from Toho Kingdom. So the only thing you're missing from the first release is the roaring second head:

    I think I might go for the new pack. I really do like the head with the opening mouth.

    lol What?

    If I ever see it, I'll pick up the new version. Of course, it could be a while as the older figure is just now starting to show up in my stores.

    Yeah, monkeys do that so Kong must do it too. Hurling giant steaming piles through the air. It would be like a meteor coming down.

    Maybe because they change the blood from red to green in I guess China even though China's old Kung fu movies had blood up to the wazoo, so I guess they couldn't allow Kong to throw crap at Godzilla in which would be both nasty, gross, and hilarious to see, but stuff happens. Okay, I'm getting a bit off topic let's get back to some NECA.
