Star Ace Toys has been evolving its Defo-Real horror line over the years since it’s impressive first introduction, the Pennywise IT (2017) series. Their next release was a 6-inch, hyper-stylized version of Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th as seen in the 2009 re-imaging of the classic franchise, followed by The Nun from the Conjuring universe, which we covered here. All their releases have the Defo-Real touch by creating multiple versions with a number of accessories.
Now, Star Ace Toys brings Kong: Skull Island with 4 offerings, Kong, Crawler, Kong vs Crawler set and Kong 2.0 (Octopus). All these soft vinyl statues have a realistic bite and over sized heads, the Defo-Real series trademark. A great example of the series is the Kong 2.0 (Octopus) standing a bit over 6 inches tall featuring a ferocious fight scene from the film Kong: Skull Island. This scene has never been depicted in any other collectible and features a highly detailed diorama base that was sculpted by the Kaibutsuya workshop under the direction of master sculptor Yoshio. Kong 2.0 (Octopus) is available right now for $78 USD (plus shipping).
Final Thoughts: This is a very different type of entry in the Defo-Real series that Star Ace Toys has put forth so far. The other entries are single characters with a base while this is a one-piece statue with diorama base all in one—a detailed, meticulously designed piece. Get this and these other great Kong figurines into your display case!
