As KONGTOBER comes to a close, I’ll finish off the month with the crown jewel of my King Kong collection–the 1966 King Kong model by Aurora. The model is wonderful, but what’s really great is this…

This box is incredible–just look at those abs! This box is truly one of my favorite things.

I actually have three of these built-up King Kong models, including a glow in the dark version, but the paint job on this one is the best of the bunch.

So, that’s a wrap. I hope you had as much fun with KONGTOBER 2012 as I did!

“Don’t be alarmed, ladies and gentlemen. Those chains are made of chrome steel.” All month long, I will be showing off King Kong collectibles from my personal collection in a series called KONGTOBER, so if you’re a fan of King Kong and movie monsters, I think you’re going to like what you see.
