Here are all the details straight from Prime 1 Studio:
Prime 1 Studio is incredibly proud to present the next salvo in the epic war between Titans: Kong from Godzilla vs Kong! With our 26-inch tall Kong Bust, we have proportionately scaled Kong down to the size of a human person, but his striking features and raw, savage power remain FULL-SIZED! Every wrinkle and pore in his battle-worn face has been carefully sculpted to show his decades of combat with the horrid creatures of Skull Island. Prime 1 Studio has painstakingly recreated Kong’s scarred chest, menacing teeth, and threatening expression.
Kong has been equipped with specially manufactured glass eyes to reflect the complex personality and decades of experience they contain within. And most of all, to preserve the realistic nature of his thick coat, Prime 1 Studio craftsmen have meticulously hand-punched each of his hair strands, one by one, into his silicone and polystone understructure, making this fantastic bust a true labor of love. From the front, Kong’s bust sits above an Iwi Village fortification on a Skull Island-themed base, his home for decades.
From the back, another Kong sits victoriously on his Hollow Earth throne, surrounded by naturally painted stalactites, stalagmites, and the ruins of this long extinct kingdom. Intricately painted and clutching his main primary defense against Godzilla’s Atomic Breath, Kong surveys his future home with his ancient Battle Axe. And, for a brief moment, all is right with the world. Then, all hell breaks loose with a deafening challenge from his Alpha rival! Choose your fighter by ordering this incredible bust today!
