Polar Lights Model Kits: 4 weeks of Christmas Part 3

Santa’s coming soon and in the spirit of giving, we are presenting inside-looks at some of the projects we have in the works here at Polar Lights models. By now you should have seen our updates on Kane and the U.S.S. Reliant. We had given inside looks at earlier stages of both of those earlier in the year. This month we give the unveiling of something new.

Feast you eyes on the 8th wonder of the world, King Kong. This fabulous sculpt was done by Gabriel Marquez. I’ve kept him in mind for this project ever since he contacted me about it when we first go into the model kit biz. The sculpt is currently being reviewed by the licensor. Look for it in 2014. More details when they become available.

Next week… the Queen!

    Jamie, this looks awesome!
    I’ve never been a big Kong fan, but this is a definate buy.

    I never expected a new King Kong!

    I love the base.

    Will he be injection molded or resin?


  4. phicks says:

    I had zero interest in a re-release of an old Aurora Kong kit. And now I see that is not at all what this is. Holy CRAP! A newly sculpted Kong and a dead T Rex! Awesome.

  5. Steven Lee says:

    Wow! That looks FREAKIN’ AMAZING!

  11. BatToys says:

    Fay Wray too?

  12. Richard Mark Brakefield says:

    Will this be styrene or resin. Looks great.

  13. Ken Lee says:

    Resin, styrene or vinyl? Some of us have limited funds and resin kits are usually double or triple the price of styrene and therefore out of range price wise.

  14. Richard Mark Brakefield says:

    Is Kong resin or styrene. Looks like a great kit.

  15. JamieH says:

    This one will be resin again. Like Kane, there is so much detail that would have to be compromised to eliminate trapping problems if we did it in styrene that we opted to go that direction this time.

  16. Roger says:

    Kong looks amazing! Hope you guys make a kit for Godzilla 2014 next year…

  17. j says:

  25. I have been waiting on this kit for years. Ever since I saw it listed on the booth at WF. I am so stoked it looks phenomenal!!!!

  26. eradicator178 says:

    Jamie, I was reading on another hobby forum that this kit has been cancelled also. Is this true? If it is I sure hate that because this looks like it would have been a fantastic kit!!
