The great one is about to rise at the San Diego Comic Con!
After the success of it’s Kickstarter campaign, Warpo and Diamond Comic Distributors are teaming to bring the Legends of Cthulhu line of figures to the comic convention this week.
Legends of Cthulhu is a four-figure retro action figure line featuring archetypal characters from the worlds of H.P. Lovecraft – The Professor, The Cultist, The Deep One, and Spawn of Cthulhu. The figures were created using Warpo’s Method Manufacturing™, which uses era-specific processes to create authentic, retro toys with distinct artisanal, collectible quality. By enlisting legendary sculptor Eddy Mosqueda (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Masters of the Universe), and artist Ken Kelly (Micronauts, Manglor Mountain, KISS’ Destroyer album cover), Legends of Cthulhu captures the look and feel of the beloved action figures from the 1970s and 1980s. Each figure stands 3.75” tall, has 5 points of articulation, and comes with character-appropriate accessories. Figures will come packaged in a nostalgic, retail-exclusive blister-card featuring original painted artwork by artist Ken Kelly.
It’s too bad the Kickstarter didn’t get to open the Lovecraft and giant Cthulhu figures, but knowing that these 3.75-inch are headed my way gives me comfort. And for those of you who didn’t get in on the Kickstarter campaign, Diamond Comic Distributors will offer these figures in the September 2014 Previews so your retailer can order them for you.
