Star Ace has officially announced the Kong: Skull Island Version 2.0 figure, like the first one there will be two versions a regular and deluxe. The deluxe features a propeller and chain in his hand and comes with a base, which is slightly different in style from the base the first version came with.
From Star Ace - “All hail the King.”
Kong: Skull Island introduced us to the Monsterverse that will soon see the king of all monsters, Godzilla, take on the king of Skull Island – Kong. This new 32cm vinyl figure shows the protector of Skull Island in a defiant roar, mouth open wide and arms outstretched. This piece is meticulously sculpted to show the rage in his face, all the detail of his hair and the battle scars across his chest. He is painted by hand to bring out all the incredible nuances of his expression and recreate the realism that makes the figure look alive.
A limited-edition Deluxe Version recreates a famous scene in the movie where Kong swings a ship’s propeller on a chain at an attacking monster. The Deluxe Version features a diorama base with the remnants of a ship, and Kong has a chain around his arm and is holding a ship’s propeller, getting ready to heave it at the Skullcrawler.
Shipping in Dec 2019, this is the new Kong you’ve been waiting for!

Godzilla: King of the Monsters Original Motion Picture Soundtrack!
Featuring music by Emmy® and BAFTA Award winning composer Bear McCreary (10 Cloverfield Lane, TV’s The Walking Dead), in two special deluxe triple LP vinyl configurations. Written and Directed by Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat, Krampus) and starring Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring), Kyle Chandler (Super 8), and Ken Watanabe (Isle of Dogs, Inception), Godzilla: King of the Monsters is the highly anticipated next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic Monsterverse - an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history.
Composer Bear McCreary’s (10 Cloverfield Lane, Happy Death Day, and TV’s The Walking Dead) music is a two-year-long labor of love dubbed a “Monster Opera” by director Michael Dougherty, and a crucial element to the film. Each “kaiju” is given a voice in this epic opera - Godzilla is presented with heroic, guttural vocalizations. King Ghidorah presented with dark, hypnotic chanting. Mothra by way of an ethereal female choir. Rodan’s voice is achieved by orchestral French horns pushed to their very limit to “scream” ripping roars.
Incorporated and adapted are both the legendary Godzilla theme by Akira Ifukube, and the immortal “Mothra’s Song” by Yuji Koseki. Also included is the McCreary-adapted eternal classic “Godzilla” by Blue Öyster Cult, featuring Serj Tankian (System Of A Down) on lead vocals, and musicians Brendon Small, Bryan Beller, and Gene Hoglan who form the Dethklok rhythm section of from TV’s Metalocalypse.
Clocking in at 98 minutes of music, Waxwork is proud to present Godzilla: King of the Monsters as a deluxe triple LP set. Housed in a unique, rarely manufactured heavyweight triple-fold LP ‘monster’ pack, and featuring 180 “Kaiju” colored vinyl, liner notes by director Michael Dougherty and composer Bear McCreary, and artwork by Christopher Shy.
