Great review -- LOVE my Kong mask! It's pretty amazing that it took this long for someone to produce a licensed version of the original creature. Justin truly nailed the likeness, and I think the faux fur works really well on the piece.

2015 Trick or Treat Studios "King Kong"



I've been wanting one of these Kong masks for a while, now. I need to get my ass in gear and pick one up. Especially now that TOTS is taking them out of their roster. Great work as always, Jupiter!

Symbiote, last year, TOTS had a Black Friday sale with 20% off everything as I recall. You might want to snag one that weekend. I plan on doing some shopping myself that day.

Great video. Justin really nailed the likeness. Now if we can just get a "Smilin' Kong" from the  close-ups:

Another fine review!

Too bad they smoothed out the neck on later versions. The added detail of the tank parts was a nice touch. If memory serves, I almost purchased one of these back in the day from Famous Monsters because the Post Vader was "too expensive." I ended up getting the Post Vader -- and still have it!

I get why you would want a copy with the original eye lenses but in all honesty the sunglasses lenses are probably better quality. Maskahuna's pic shows the cloudiness you mentioned quite clearly. When comparing the two the replacement lenses look better. Display wise I would be perfectly happy with what you have especially since you have a copy with the tank parts molded on it which looks better than the smooth neck version. This reminds me of the Rubies Van Helsing Frankenstein mask with the plastic skull cap. That mask isn't even that old and finding one that isn't cracked is difficult because the quality of the plastic just isn't that great.

Death Cyborg is such a cool mask! Whenever I look at it, I'll always see a bit of this guy:

I really enjoy the variety of masks that you cover in your video reviews jupiter2. That's a focus for me as well is to have a variety of companies and artists in my collection.

That's a terrific sculpt. I never heard of these guys before but jumped onto their site. This is my favorite:

It's a great scary character. I recall seeing CreatureRevenge at Don-Con
where I bought one of those rotted pumpkin masks, seen in your vid at
1:35. It sits in our living room every October as part of our Halloween
decor. Thanks for the review, jupiter2.

Creature Revenge also did the latex slip cover for the Illustrated History of Don Post Studios book.
