He opened doorways to other dimensions, conjured up creatures to frighten generations of readers, and put his literary characters through memorable mazes of madness. Despite his immeasurable contributions to the horror genre, the dark imaginative worlds of H.P. Lovecraft’s stories never received an action figure line, even in the golden toy age of the late 1970′s/early 1980′s. Now one Kickstarter campaign is looking to give credit where it’s due by bringing four memorable Lovecraft characters to action figure life like never before.

These are the four characters featured in the Legends of Cthulhu Retro Action Figure Toy Line:

“Spawn of Cthulhu: Extraterrestrial worshippers of the Great Old One known as Cthulhu.

Figure Specs: 3.75″ tall, swivel head, jointed arms and legs

Accessories: Necronomicon (book), snap-on wings

The Cultist: A member of the Cult of Cthulhu, an organization of humans working to hasten Cthulhu’s return to power on earth. »
