As many of you know, I'm kind of a fan of Peter Jackson's interpretation of King Kong. I uploaded my collection photos to the user database a week or so ago, but I thought I'd re-post them in their own thread so more people can check them out. I have more items on order right now, so I'll update my collection photos as they arrive. :D

New additions!

A few more goodies to add to the collection...

First up, something that I consider to be a holy grail to my Kong collection; an original Universal Studios screenplay of the 2005 version of King Kong, hand-signed by Peter Jackson, Naomi Watts, Adrien Brody and Jack Black! Included is an official Certificate of Authenticity from Screen Legends. I'm so thrilled to have this in my collection, though it would've truly been complete with an Andy Serkis signature. Still, it's a beauty to behold! :D


Next, I received both a sealed copy of the Italian 2-Disc Collector's Edition for King Kong: Peter Jackson's Production Diaries (complete with slipcover) as well as the brand-new S.H. MonsterArts Kong: 8th Wonder of the World figure from Bandai. The figure ended up being a LOT smaller than I had expected, but it's still a very cool collectible.


Finally, thanks to my Kong-pal bloodsnake007, I was able to acquire a COMPLETE copy of the King King Press Kit (beforehand, I only owned the CD that's included within the kit). Apologies for the poor lighting.


I'm moving now, so there'll probably be no updates for the foreseeable future.

Wonderful collection sir, well done. :notworthy: I have 5 or 6 copies of this film and thought that was impressive but you've taken it to a whole new level.

Great to see and good luck with the move :thumbs:

Thanks so much, man! I collect at a slow pace, so my Kong collection will become even larger over time. If you want to see a really impressive Kong collection, though, I highly recommend you checking out bloodsnake007's! :thumbs:

This is completely insane!

What a collection. And you even have an edition with the number '1' on it. Damn... I'm speechless, this is one of the biggest and most complete collections I've ever seen.

I was impressed with the Troll Hunter goodies, but this is sensational - some top level collecting - must be great seeing the collection grow as you track all those releases down :)
Thanks, Ant! You never realize how many worldwide releases one film has until you start collecting said film... and then you and your wallet deeply regret it. :hilarious:

This isn't an addition to my collection, but I thought that this would be the best place to share... My current avatar was created by brother, James. He creates these awkwardly unique 'photo edits' for Instagram and he's quickly becoming a large draw on their site/app. Here's a larger look at the King Kong edit he created for me:

Sorry for the bother but the pocket watch is so cool.
