    Hi avf collectors!

    I have been collecting King Kong collectibles (mostly statue from Weta + some custom-made model kits) since a few years ago, now I would like to share them here to spread some loves for King Kong :)

    Photos aren't that good quality as i am really not that good in talking photos and my handphone camera is kinda low quality. P/S Btw, I have created a website dedicated to my King Kong collectibles, just in case you are interested : King Kong Statue

    Awesome pieces. Cool to have such a focused collection.

    What scale is that wall mounted T-Rex?

    Thanks a lot for the kind words Knave :)

    Hmm, the V-Rex bust's scale is unknown tho. But it is pretty big, height is around 44-46cm. Probably a 1/20? Can't be sure as there is no official data regarding the scale.

    That's an awesome size piece regardless of actual scale, bet it looks great in person.

    Sorry for calling it a T-Rex earlier :facepalm:

    Most of the people calling it T-Rex :p Yup, it looks really great in person. Due to it's size, the details on this bust is really amazing. (It is also the maquette for the King Kong Movie 2005)

    Btw man, saw your signature's link and visited your page, awesome art works! You are a talented artist!

    Thanks for the kind words vtrmart :)

    Yup, there are a few rarities there :
    1) The Weta Bronze Kong bust, 200 were made. This one is kinda hard to get nowadays. (it is made of Bronze, thus pretty heavy)
    2) The Weta Chess Set and The Art Frames (with bullet prop & Richard Taylor + Gus Hunter's signature). Both were limited t0 500 ES.
    3) The rest are some low edition GK, as low as 20 :)

    I am currently looking for a good quality (but cheap pricing :p) camera, will re-upload all the photos with some close-up once i got a new camera :)
