Talk:King Kong

From Wikizilla, the kaiju encyclopedia

Kong's true height in the 1933 movie was either 18 feet (Skull Island) or 24 feet (New York), but I'm not sure of the best way to format that in the infobox. Also, I don't think Godman's Gorilla should be included here, at least in the same section as the other Kongs. That's like putting Jirass and Gomess on Godzilla's page.--Astounding Beyond Belief (talk) 02:57, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

I know Kong has been stated to have been scaled at 18 and 24 feet for the 1933 film, but official sources vary on what his "official" height is, and usually place it around 50 feet. At the very least we should gather different sources for his height and include them all in the page, And we include Gorilla on the page is because other encyclopedic sources, like Japanese Wikipedia, do the same thing, and usually state that Gorilla is essentially the Toho Kong but under another name because Toho didn't have the rights to the character. We had a long discussion about whether or not to include Gorilla on the Kong page a few years ago, and eventually came to a consensus and decided to leave it there.

Ah, those bothersome official sources. (I know Destoroyah isn't 120 meters tall, Toho!) To complicate Kong's stats further: he's 42 feet for most of the '76 film but 55 feet when walking around miniature New York.

Is there different incarnation pages?! -- God's Godzilla 23:28, 19 December 2017 (UTC)

They're currently in sandboxes.--Astounding Beyond Belief (talk) 12:45, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
