“Legends of Cthulhu” Lets You Play with Unspeakable Horrors

Warpo is in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign to bring to life some “Old Ones” that are H.P. Lovecraft’s classic characters and monsters in the form of classic ’70s and ’80-era action figures. The Legends of Cthulhu line of figures have already exceeded their goal of $60,000 by a whopping 40 grand, which means that the bonus stretch goals have opened up for paying participants. The basic limited edition figures are “Cultist,” “Professor,” “Deep One,” and “Spawn of Cthulhu,” and in addition to the four figures, backers can get a t-shirt, promotional VHS tape of their commercial, a coloring book, and more. The figures are reminiscent of the old Star Wars or Advanced Dungeons and Dragons line of figures, with locked arm-and-leg joints, but they look rather solidly constructed. The makers of the line are no amateurs, either. With a long history of working with toys and design, they have worked on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Masters of the Universe, KISS album covers, and more. Check out their Kickstarter to get the full details of their project, or if you’d like to donate to it so you can pick up some of these figures. Lucky you.
