Hey folks, Harry here. This is EXACTLY why I love Peter Jackson. Because the movie is over. It's in a can, sitting waiting to be shown, but the show isn't. I get to throw a lot of events with Tim League at the Alamo Drafthouse, and we've done a lot of really fucking cool stuff... but, golly... I'd kill to have something like Weta at our beck and call to outfit an event. LOOK AT THESE PICS! That's a fucking 4 story high 1:1 KING KONG sitting in the middle of fucking New York! And he's sad. Look at the eyes, the sculpting... I want to see video cuz in those canyons you know the hair is whipping around. This is so dang cool. I want a GIANT plexi Box in back of my house that I can put him in. I hope KING KONG makes like 7 billion dollars world wide, so that Peter can buy an Island... rename it SKULL ISLAND and create the greatest theme park ever. And the only way to get there is if you're on a boat that goes near the island it crashes on a crag... those that can swim and escape the wreckage land ashore... the others die. And then Peter's on the island with a gun and he hunts the survivors down throughout the Kong sets. Artificially intelligent Robot Dinosaurs and Kong try to kill you and so does Peter. Yes. Yes. This must become true. Um, yeah. Ok, anyway you click on the pic and you get a Kong size version...
Big fan for a long time. Hope Quint loves my city, he'll probably have seen this and snapped a few photos but this is a surprisingly very life-like Kong in the heart of Manhattan; real treat to us Kong-philes to see the big guy like this on our daily commutes.
