    King Kong Resin Maquette (Paramount, 1976). Standing at just over 22" (including the wooden base) this resin sculpture shows Kong in all his fearsome glory as designed by special effects legend Carlo Rambaldi (Alien, E.T., Silver Bullet) for the big-budget 1976 Dino De Laurentiis remake of King Kong. This maquette appears to be the final design for the limited run (an unknown number somewhere between 100-400) of sculptures produced to be given to cast and crew of the film, as well as gifted to theater owners for display. Painted flat black and standing atop a grey-painted wooden base, this beast measures an approximate 22 1/4" x 10 1/2" x 10", and is in Very Good Plus condition, with several cracks to Kong's left arm with signs of previous repair, and minor wear from age throughout. Includes a sheet printed with the film's cast and crew with annotations in an unknown hand. COA from Heritage Auctions.
