    TEMP OUT OF STOCK. Reorder. The stop-motion animation that brought King Kong to life in the 1933 classic established a new standard for visual effects, and inspired generations of aspiring film-makers and effects technicians. Stop-motion pioneer Willis O'Brien and sculptor Marcel Delgado animated Kong using two 18-inch armatures; metal skeletons covered with sponge rubber, latex rubber, and fur. The two puppets had distinguishably different heads, one used in the log bridge and T-rex battle sequences, and the other used for all of the New York scenes and the balance of the Skull Island scenes. These puppets were not only incredibly realistic and detailed artworks, but the metal framework inside the T-rex Battle Armature was durable enough to survive the grueling shooting schedule of the original film, and later for Son of Kong. This reproduction of the 'T-Rex Battle' King Kong armature is authentic in every detail, and fully capable of recreating the stop-motion puppetry magic of the original film. Each element of Kong's metal skeleton has been replicated to exacting standards, from flexible fingers to powerful jaws. The surface of each skeletal part recreates the texture and tool marks from the original fabrication, even the aging and weathering of the piece has been replicated. The armature is complete with a high quality display base featuring a 'Kong' nameplate. Sideshow Collectibles and Bob Burns are proud to offer this authentic replica of one of Hollywood's most famous, influential and historic film icons.
