Oddly familiar giant gorilla

I found pretty trashed copy of the 1977 Multiple Toymakers catalog recently and the things that really struck me were these obvious King Kong Knock off sets. Both were marketed under the brand “Terror on the Tower”.
This looks exactly like a set Mego made for the real Kong movie and I now really want it. Did anybody have these as a kid? I really want to know if they got produced.

    They may not have had King Kong, but they had to have similarly sized meatballs to make this stuff. 🙂
