Original King Kong Model For Sale

Filed under: Internet, misc. — Jonathan @ 9:38 am

Christie’s auction house in London is offering the original articulated model of King Kong as part of a pop culture sale. This is the model that was used in the stop-animation sequence in which Kong climbed the Empire State Buiding in the movie’s final sequences.

It is estimated to reach between $168,000 and $252,000 when it is auctioned Nov. 24.
