Legends of Cthulhu is a four-figure retro action figure line featuring archetypal characters from the worlds of H.P. Lovecraft – The Professor, The Cultist, The Deep One, and Spawn of Cthulhu. The figures were created using Warpo's Method Manufacturing, which uses era-specific processes to create authentic, retro toys with distinct artisanal, collectible quality. By enlisting sculptor Eddy Mosqueda (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Masters of the Universe), and artist Ken Kelly (Micronauts, Manglor Mountain, KISS’ Destroyer album cover), Legends of Cthulhu captures the look and feel of the beloved action figures from the 1970s and 1980s.

Produced by the partnership of toy companies Diamond Comic Distributors and Warpo, each figure stands 3.75" tall and has 5 points of articulation. They also come with accessories and, they'll be packaged in really cool blister-card packaging that's reminiscent of the old school toys like He-Man (example below).

Warpo's "retro-style TV commercial" will make it's debut as well. Warpo had started a Kickstarter Campaign to get these made, and due to eager fans wanting them, they doubled their goal amount of money ($60,000) in just three days.

From July 23rd to the 27th, Diamond will be debuting the Legends of Cthulhu at Comic-Con at the PREVIEWS world booth (#2401).
