Mecha-Kong Returns after 26 Years

After 26 years Billiken's finally reissuing their 1987 Mecha-Kong. 

Mecha King Kong, or Mechani-Kong, as he is known in Japan, is a robotic copy of the original King Kong that appeared in the 1967 movie "King Kong Escapes"!

The 11.5" tall Ape is an unpainted vinyl model with clear vinyl head part. Priced at $55 you'd say Billiken was banana's for charging such a cheap price for this robotic ape, so to order visit the Billiken site here, but be warned unless you know Japanese (google translation doesn't work on this site) it's not going to be easy to navigate to the shopping cart.
