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
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.
