Less than a year ago, Warpo ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to have some Cthulhu action figures made. They are toy enthusiasts who loved the style of retro action figures in contrast to the ones you’ll find on toy shelves today. Enough other people were on board with this idea and wanted to see it come to life. As of yesterday, the figures are officially out, and store owners can sell them on their shelves.
I had the pleasure of sitting down the guys from Warpo at Gen Con last year and checking out the figures for myself. They really were a blast from the past, and I had fun listening to their stories of hunting down toy designers from back in the day, and how they’d encourage them to make toys “like they used to”, and not worry about current day stylings. Their love for retro action figures was apparent through the passion they had when sharing these toys with me. I can tell you from first hand experience that these toys are really cool and would be the perfect addition to any Cthulhu lover’s collection.
Each figure stands a 3.75″ and will retail at $19.99 each. You can find them at online stores like BigBadToyStore, or contact your favorite comic stores if you want to see them locally. Warpo has more toys in the works in the future, and we will bring you those announcements as they come. Check out detailed images of the figures at the original Kickstarter page, and be sure to follow Warpo’s homepage.
