Heads up, there seems to be a new NECA Kong out.
It comes with the two mini figure creatures and two new head sculpts.

Seems like a great time to be a gorilla action figure collector, especially Kong.
Neca got 2 plus a color variant, Mcfarlane Grodd plus silver variant, Mezco small & big and Figuarts '05 & '21 Kongs.
I passed on'em all, but if I see this new one, I might finally bite.

Don’t go on Twitter, guys. Internet Man is at it again with his insufferable complaints over complete non-issues. One complaint was about how “proper” Kong has his mouth closed and how this figure represents yet another catastrophic failure to realize “proper” closed-mouth Kong. Another complaint was about how the box had a black-and-white pic of Kong but houses a color Kong figure.

I skipped the first Kong as I didn't like the head sculpt, but this new one is more my speed.

Yes, would love to see this! When I bought Luca years ago, I always figured he'd be my stand in Kong since no one else was making quality ape figures at the time. I've since misplaced him and am very tempted by Ultimate Kong mainly because of the dino friend pack ins.

Found Kong at Target! 3 sets of hands, hinged jaw on the classic head with a larger brow, a big club/ log, and two monster pack-ins (pterodactyl and pit monster) which each have hinged jaws and swivel-hinge heads! THIS is the Kong to get!

If no one beats me to it I’ll take some comparison pics of Lucca and Kong tomorrow after work.

Spoiler alert: Lucca is tiny, standing up right he’s shorter than Kong walking on his knuckles.

Toyark posted their gallery of the new Kong which according to them was supposed to be released in June for Father’s Day but apparently released early by mistake.

Hopefully it’ll be online or at least easy to get in store.
