Hi there ,

Please do you knowW where to find dinosaurs with a kitschy look like those seen in the two 1933 films "King Kong" and his sequel, titled "Son of Kong", models such as the X-PLUS King Kong model and the XPlus Tyrannosaurus Rex model which looks like brothers to those of the 1933 movie "King Kong", thank you.

What size or scale?

These at DollarTree are about 9" tall/long, and suitably cheesy: link
They have smaller ones as well.

Antediluvian Miniatures have some "retro" dinosaur models suitable for use with 28mm human figures: link . They're very nice, but not particularly cheap.

Google Schleich. They are pretty good. Farm and Fleet stocks em. So does Michael's Hobby and Craft.

Thank you all, but see the styles of the two XPLUS figures that I design and you will see what style of models that I am looking for.

Well, since there's no link to a design or XPLUS, whatever that is, it's hard to judge what you look you seek.

Yes it's true, there are only the two variants of King Kong and the tyranosaurus from XPLUS and nothing is comparable to them.

They should have made all the dinosaurs that we see in the two movies of 1933, not just the tyranosaurus.

Yeah, I'm not typing "XPLUS" into a search engine in this day and age. huh?

Reassuringly un-exciting, actually

Thank you but Godzilla, we don't care!

Apologies for the thread necro, but I ran across these dinos in 15mm

From the search link 42flanker provided, "XPLUS Godzilla" = chibi Godzilla.

Funko Pop probably gives the best span or results, but I'm a fan of plush for chibi, so… YMMV
