CHICAGO, IL (September 30, 2014): Indie toy company Warpo is thrilled to share today a first-look at the forthcoming Legends of Cthulhu (LoC) retro action figure line. These images represent the four Legends of Cthulhu figures – Spawn of Cthulhu, The Deep One, The Professor, and The Cultist, as well as the Kickstarter Exclusives High Priest and Conjured Cthulhu – in their unpainted form from the factory. These images are early production sneak-peeks, and not the final product.
Legends of Cthulhu was funded via Kickstarter in June 2014, raising the initial funds in just three days. The retro action figures are currently available for pre-order through Diamond Comic Distributors at your local comic book store, as well as through Big Bad Toy Store, and will be available at retail January 2015.
Legends of Cthulhu is a retro-styled, 3.75” action figure line, the first based on the iconic characters of H.P. Lovecraft and created by sculptor Eddy Mosqueda (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Masters of the Universe), and artist Ken Kelly (Micronauts, Manglor Mountain, KISS’ Destroyer album cover), the pioneers of the look and feel of beloved action figures from the 1970s and 1980s, to bring Legends of Cthulhu to life.
Founded in 2013 by avid collectors and toy industry veterans Bryan Katzel, Eric LeFeber and Tommy Baldwin, Warpo is Making Yesterday’s Toys, high-quality collectible toys with a a distinct retro look and feel. Taking an artisanal approach of “method manufacturing”, Warpo’s debut product line, Legends of Cthulhu launched with a Kickstarter in June 2014, and the company’s future releases include action figures, plush, playsets, and more.
