Kong Is Topps


The Topps Company has been awarded the license to publish official KING KONG trading cards based on the upcoming movie from Universal Pictures and Academy Award-winning director Peter Jackson.

Topps plans an ambitious card program for KING KONG, worthy of the grand scale of the movie. “The chance to be a part of a milestone cultural event this big rarely comes around,” says Topps’ Friedman. “We’re creating fun, collectible cards to appeal to KONG fans and collectors of every age.” The Topps movie tie-in cards will appear on retail counters in advance of KING KONG’s theatrical debut.

Founded in 1938, Topps is a leading creator and marketer of distinctive confectionery and entertainment products. The Company’s confectionery brands include “Ring Pop,” “Push Pop,” “Baby Bottle Pop” and “Juicy Drop Pop” lollipops as well as “Bazooka” bubble gum.
