Bob Burns King Kong Collector

Anyone who has spent any time on this website knows that I am a passionate fan of King Kong.  From my formative days as a Monster Kid seeing the 1933 film for the first time, Kong has held a special place in my favorite monsters and favorite monster movies.  We’ve written numerous articles about collecting King Kong from Aurora Model Kits, toys and games and  to original film posters as well.

But no Kong collectible can beat the original armature used by Willis O’Brien in bringing the giant ape to life on screen, and Bob Burns is it’s caretaker.  Not only Kong’s armature, but Might Joe Young and a host of other original pieces from these fantastic films about giant apes.  Enjoy this video, Monster Kids, this might be as close as you ever get to some of these items!
