Spawn of Cthulhu
Review by JoshB
I grew up reading Lovecraft's tales. They were set in a New England that I knew, at least hints of it were there on the seacoast. There was always a sense of mystery and history. So yeah, I was into Cthulhu.
Warpo came out with a line of Cthulhu action figures, complete with retro coloring book and commercials. They came out of the gate swinging, and had a great product line... then... nothing. These 4 figures and the giant Cthulhu were it. I wonder what happened?
I mean come on, they got KEN KELLY to do art for this series.
This particular figure is the Spawn of Cthulhu - not Cthulhu himself. But he's very Cthulhu-like,
5 points of articulation in a retro style, with subtle paint washes.
The wings are a separate piece molded onto the back.
Of course he comes with a Necronomicon!
It's a solid action figure, but I remember these pushing $20 each at retail, which was just too much in my opinion. I eventually found one for $10 and felt it was appropriate. Everyone needs a little Cthulhu in their life.
