The box is always in light cardboard and, unlike other similar proposals, this time the transparent window is not placed in the front part of the box but in the back one. Instead, on the front we find a captivating graphics with the two protagonists of the 2021 film from which the product takes inspiration.

The Kong Bandai Event Exclusive figure

Once the package is opened we can immediately admire all the contents placed inside it. From a first glance it is easy to understand how this figure lends itself very well to being exposed both in static pose and in action pose. In addition to the figures, in fact, the box has two other heads with different expressions, some hands with different openings, a head of the Mecha Godzilla, a weapon with an effect and three small planes with lots of support.

As for the dimensions, this new proposal dedicated to the character of Kong it is compact and excellent for display even in small spaces. The figure is very solid to the touch and the perception that one has once held in the hands is that of an extremely posable and well balanced product, thanks also to its intrinsic physical conformation. The confirmation of all this comes already from the frontal static pose, which is firm and free of any uncertainty. The joints in the joints are strong and able to keep the figure standing without any kind of problem.

Although we expected such a result, what particularly surprised us is the great stability of the character even in the action poses. Thanks to the presence of large feet, Kong can be exhibited in the collection in dynamic poses without any delay. Inside the package there is no exhibition standbut in all honesty we didn’t miss it in the slightest.

The sculpt and the coloring

As for the sculpt, Kong is well made and on the whole body it is possible to appreciate his typical coat. Even his heads leave no room for negative comments, with a note of merit for the face that depicts Kong intent on an attack, certainly the best of the trio.

The painting, although difficult to achieve for a figure of this size, is congruous and is able to give depth and movement to the whole. Among the details we also find a series of wounds on Kong’s chest, recovering from an aggressive fight. Last but not least, we point out that the inside of Kong’s mouth is also painted, in stark contrast to his ferocious white jaws.

The accessories

Inside the package, in addition to the additional heads and hands, we found three great accessories to reproduce the action scenes. The first is an ax with a lot of effect, which can be gripped with the help of a pair of dedicated hands, the second is a mini diorama depicting three airplanes in flight, while the third is the head depicting the Mechagodzilla.

The ax is aesthetically very beautiful, even if the montage of the effect is not very stable. The second accessory is a real gem, as it can be used in combination with the weapon to simulate a real fight. Furthermore, we inform you that the small support used to support the planes is made through the use of wires with a flexible core, these allow you to position all the individual planes as you see fit and thus give the right dynamism to the whole.

Finally, the head of the Mechagodzilla is also very well made, which can be wielded by a Kong on a rampage!
