Mezco Toyz Skull Island King Kong Figure Review

Mezco Toyz King Kong
King Kong is a classic character that I've never liked in any figure format...that is until I received my Mezco Toyz version.  Kong should be a large beast with some girth to him and maybe a few battle damage and scars, and that is exactly what Mezco delivers. Let's take a closer look at the ruler of Skull Island and all the things he has to offer to you as a collector.

  • 2 excellent face sculpts
  • Great articulation at the arms, head and elbows
  • Highly detailed broken restraints 
  • Damsel in distress
  • Excellent price point of $40
  • The hip articulation can be a little tough, but I prefer tight over loose as he holds all his poses
I first saw the King Kong figure at Toy Fair and it looked great with tons of detail and nice accessories.  From that point forward my desire to have him never changed, and I am really happy with the end result.  I like both of the face sculpts a lot, and they include highly detailed paint apps especially in the eyes and the mouth.  He has a great weight balance to him. He's thick and heavy but has no problem holding a pose.  He stands about 7" tall with 25 points of articulation that allows him to do a lot of things.
I really like the fact that it comes with the two heads and some other subtle yet perfect accessories for Kong.  The price point of $40 is a steal and really is a much better quality item than figures from other companies you would get for close to the same price. For a heavy figure like this posing and standing is always a concern, but I am really happy how Mezco approached and executed this King Kong figure. It also gives me hope and excitement for the larger scale version of this figure they will be releasing in the future.  This is an amazing release by Mezco and will certainly lead to me buying the larger scale version when its announced!  If you are a fan of the old movies or the new movies or just flat out love King Kong this is definitely a figure worth getting.
