Twas Beauty That Collected The Beast

When Mezco goes big, they really go big! This week they released new solicitation information for their massive 18″ King Kong of Skull Island figure. This gigantic ape figure is based on the legend of King Kong, rather than any specific version seen on film, so the team at Mezco really had some fun with this one! It includes 3 interchangeable heads as well as 4 interchangeable hands and 10 points of articulation. Full release info from Mezco is featured below.

Ultimate King Kong of Skull Island Figure

King Kong, the ruler of Skull Island who terrorized 1930’s New York is set to reign over the world of collectibles.

Immense in detail and size, this king-size Kong stands at a towering 18” tall. He comes complete with 3 interchangeable head portraits, each showcasing a different expression, and 4 interchangeable hands. Featuring 10 points of articulation, the ruler of Skull Island can create a thrilling array of dynamic and defiant poses.


– Imposing 18” height
– 10 points of articulation
– Three (3) interchangeable head portraits
– Four (4) interchangeable hands
– One pair of fists (L & R)
– One pair of posing hands (L & R)

The Ultimate King Kong of Skull Island figure comes packaged in a collector-friendly box, perfect for display. But unlike the legendary wall of Skull Island, it may not contain him for very long…

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the substantial size of the figure, it is strongly recommended that you do not display on surfaces above 3’ high.


Monstrous Mystery Minis

Its been quite some time since we last saw any Universal Monsters themed collectibles, so its exciting to see Funko heading back to the brand for an all new wave of Mystery Minis blindboxed vinyl figures! The newly announced wave includes fan favorites like Frankenstein’s Monster (two versions!), The Mummy, The Wolfman, The Creature From The Black Lagoon, Dracula (two versions!), Mole People, The Bride Of Frankenstein, The Invisible Man (two versions!), and The Phantom Of The Opera! There will also be an entire Black & White variant set that is available exclusively at Walgreens stores when the line releases this summer!

Merlin’s Beard!

‘Harry Potter’ is one of those few franchises that never seems to go away or fade in the interest of the public’s mind. This week the team at Funko announced several new Harry Potter POP! Vinyls that will be available to join your collection soon! New figures coming soon include Yule Ball versions of Harry, Cedric Diggory, Viktor Krum, and Fleur Delacour, plus professor Trelawney, and Fawkes the Phoenix! These are all due out this summer.
In addition to these wide release ‘Harry Potter’ Funko POP! Vinyls, there will also be a Pop In The Box exclusive Lord Voldemort with Nagini released later this year.
