Want: Retro-Styled Cthulhu action Figures


c1Indie toy maker Warpo recently started a Kickstarter campaign to fund the making of their Legends of Cthulhu Retro Action Figure Toy Line. If you’re wondering, yes, you are allowed to keep them in the package for the rest of your life until your kids break into your stash one day and you come home from work to find all your very collectible toys melting on the dashboard of your wife’s car.

As for the figures, Cthulhu is easily the most recognizable of the line, but each of the other three Lovecraftian figures feature the same attention to detail. There’s a Cultist with a vinyl cape, a Deep One with a spear, and a Professor with his trusty pistol. Each is a tribute to both H.P. Lovecraft and the action figures of the ’70′s and ’80′s.

Will I be backing them? Probably not, but it’s not because I don’t think the project is a bad idea or I don’t want the figures. It’s purely because I’m as broke as a joke and I can’t even afford to pay attention.
