Another problem that pops up on this figure is that his joints can easily pop out of place. This is a pretty common occurrence in the Monsterarts line, and one I wish would get fixed. I’m not going to stop buying the figures over it, but I do think it’s a problem that shouldn’t exist in a line that’s this expensive.
Aside from the alternate faces, Kong comes with a bevy of replacement hands as well. You get a pair of open, holding, fists, and knuckles to the ground. There’s also an additional right hand that is clutching a little Ann Darrow. The little figure has a minimal amount of design which really contrasts with Kong’s figure, making her stand out nicely.
Kong also comes with a small stick to beat a dino with. And unlike most MonsterArts, he also gets a stand. It’s one of the large circular ones used for Pokemon, but with a larger “C” clip that can actually fit around the character. Unfortunately the figure is fairly heavy and I found it difficult balancing him just right so the arm would hold him up.
Aside from a few minor complaints, I’m really happy with this figure. Kong’s lifelike detail really allows him to stand out on a shelf full of imaginary kaiju and his alternate faces and upper body articulation give the figure a great amount of personality. Kong and Godzilla aren’t technically the same size, but the two figures look fantastic sparing with each other in epic battle. That’s the one thing I was really looking for in this figure.
