Original King Kong Model Sells for $200k

From CBS News:
He was a giant on screen, but the King Kong figurine which climbed to the top of the Empire State Building in 1933 was less than 2 feet tall.

Yet he garnered a hefty price tag today, when the metal armature of the King Kong model sold for about £121,000 ($200,000) at a London auction.
