    No problem - Just don’t want someone spending Secondary Market money on something that may very well disappoint. I think the problem has been the design itself - It’s so detailed, spindly, and finicky that getting it juuuust right at small scale (particularly affordably) is a real challenge.

    Sculpting is so much better now than it was even a few years ago that I’m sure SOMEONE will revisit it eventually, because there’s still a ton of money to be made from that design.

    Toho Kongs are a legal quagmire, which is why licensed figures of either version are so few and far between. Don't hold your breath.

    My understanding is that they do not have a license for Kong. The Kong figures they have released are their own original designs based on the original Kong story (which has entered public domain and, therefore, one does not need a license to produce toys based on the ideas from that original story). If the 1962 Kong you have in mind is a specific design from a specific piece of media, they would need to obtain a license for it first. Somebody else can probably provide a more accurate/detailed response.

    Oh, in that case then no because they no longer have the rights to anything Godzilla related.

    That was the one where Kong attended the Enchantment Under the Sea dance and almost landed his mom.

    I really don't mind the second MacReady figure with different accessories. I was going to buy a second at some point so this makes up for that and not having double of every accessory. Unless you're brand new to NECA and toys in general, these things are expected. Next year is the 40th anniversary and they're definitely saving some stuff for that.

    I almost want to get this for the beanie and the t-shirt (especially since the listing claims it's an XL). I'd end up selling the Shredder though if I did.
