Jordan Vogt-Roberts, director of Legendary‘s Kong: Skull Island (2017), tweeted today about a recent visit to X-Plus headquarters in Osaka, Japan. There he met with X-Plus’ Gee Okamoto and got see and hold the prototype for the new 32cm Kong: Skull Island Vinyl Figure.
Last year Jordan saw photos of the early prototype and made some minor suggestions on improving the sculpt. As of now, though, he seems pretty satisfied the result.
This figure is being released internationally by Star Ace, a subsidiary of X-Plus which produced and sculpted the figure. Preorders for both a standard and deluxe version are open now. Preorders are being taken now from toy and collector sites all over the world. Both versions are expected to be released in August/September of this year.
