It is a promotional Kong maquette that was commissioned by Dino De Laurentiis prior to the film's theatrical release. According to records, between 100 - 400 of these were made in'76. It is unknown how many still exist today.They were handed out to important members of the crew (such as Jessica Lange, pictured) and to the owners of popular movie theater chains. CONDITION: This one for sale is in overall good condition, especially considering its age and history. There is some damage repair on both sides of his arms as (pictured).
On the left side hand one of the Fingers Is Broken Off and needs restoration. The statue could also use a professional cleaning. The base needs to be repainted as areas of black paint have flaked off over the years. The gold metal plaque also has some fading as shown.
Im guessing not many if any exists other then the one I have! Condition: Comes as shown with yellowing, wear & tear due to age. (This Piece Would Look Incredible Framed). A Must Have For Any King Kong Fan!
