Description: The legend lives on in the adventures of this thrilling mega-collection!
The king of all apes is back -- with brand-new mega-powers! A brilliant scientist has brought Kong back to life by combining DNA from the mighty beast with a small amount of human DNA from her grandson Jason. In the 40 awe-inspiring episodes of this complete series, Kong, Jason and their friends are living on a remote island under constant threat from power-mad scientists and monstrous DNA mutants... but when Kong gets in over his head, he and Jason are able to cyber-link into a single, powerful super-Kong able to battle foes of incredible force!
Kong: Return of the Jungle Kong hits the big screen in this creature feature! Years later, Jason and his friend Eric are living in New York City when the great adventurer and philanthropist Hunter Stag announces plans to fill his new enormous zoo with fantastical creatures. Jason and Eric helicopter to Kong Island to protect Kong and the other inhabitants, confident that with the island's high-tech radar devices, no one could follow them...but they're wrong.
This seems to be just a re-release of the old set, but containing the 40+ minute movie. I have the movie on DVD and it looks promising, so I guess this will be worth picking up.
