CHICAGO, IL (February 16, 2015): Since indie toy company Warpo first entered the collectible toy market last year with a highly successful Kickstarter for their Legends of Cthulhu, 3.75” retro action figures, the next figure on the minds of toy enthusiasts has been a 12” Cthulhu, and that figure became a reality at Toy Fair this weekend as the paint master of 12” Cthulhu made its debut.

The 12” Cthulhu will be the centerpiece of the Legends of Cthulhu collection, with pose-able wings, 9 points of articulation, and pliable “gripping hands”, suited for grasping 3.75” action figures to their doom. The 12” Cthulhu figure will be packaged in an early 1980s-style, full-color box, featuring brand new artwork by the masterful artist Ken Kelly.

“This is the Legends of Cthulhu toy we wanted to make from day one,” says Eric LeFeber, Warpo’s VP of Marketing. “He will not only be the centerpiece of the Legends of Cthulhu collection, but will also stand proudly along other vintage, over-sized monsters in your collection, like the Kraken from Clash of the Titans, or the Rancor from Star Wars.”

The 12” Cthulhu is expected to first be for sale at San Diego Comic Con 2015, and then subsequently comic, toy, and hobby shops nationwide, and will have an MSRP of $99.99.

Warpo’s Legends of Cthulhu 3.75” retro action figures (MSRP $19.99/each) made their debut on toy shelves last week, to fantastic reviews.

“The Legends of Cthluhu figures are amazing. I’m honestly building a shelf in my office specifically for them. “ – Ed Grabianowski, io9

“What Warpo has done here is so cool, it totally transcends all that other retro nonsense.” – Figure Fan Zero

“Warpo’s Legends of Cthulhu retro action figures are some of the very best retro toys ever.” – Kastor’s Korner

Legends of Cthulhu retro action figures are available at BigBadToyStore, comic book stores, and in toy and hobby shops nationwide.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
