If you ever thought that the '80s had a lack of toys with tentacles, it seems you’re not alone. Retro toy manufacturer WARPO have begun a Kickstarter campaign to launch a line of toys inspired by the works of HP Lovecraft.

The LEGENDS OF CTHULLHU range features four figures: The Professor, The Cultist, The Deep One, and Spawn of Cthulhu. They are 3.75” tall figures with  5 points of articulation,  with all the design stylings of late seventies toys, including vinyl capes and straight forward accessories.

WARPO specialise in toys with a vintage feel; new products manufactured and designed in such a way that they are indistinguishable from classic toy lines. The pictures of WARPO’s LEGENDS OF CTHULLHU range certainly  looks like they’ve escaped from some strange alternate reality. Designed by MICRONAUTS artist Ken Kelly and MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE sculptor Eddy Mosqueda, the toys will come in specially designed blister packs reminiscent of the early STAR WARS range.

More information, as well as a delightfully retro toy advertisement can be found on their Kickstarter page.
