Warpo Toys Legends of Cthulhu Spawn of Cthulhu Action FigureIt's not the main guy, but you can't have a Legends of Cthulhu line without a tentacle-mawed, winged demon thing. Spawn of Cthulhu fits the bill as a smaller, figure-sized take on the giant creature from another world - which Warpo did in fact make as a toy! A figure-sized monster is a sensible addition to the line, though, and this is probably the second-best figure in their initial series.

Since a 3 3/4-inch scale spawn of the great elder creature has minimal visual reference and lots of room for interpretation, being a literary and now public domain figment of Mr. Lovecraft's less-than-accepting imagination. The creature feels like a toy, with just enough give in the plastic that you might think it really was a legit old toy. The wings clip on the back and are removable, not unlike the backpacks from G.I. Joe. Each joint rotates freely and nothing seems to be stuck or frozen. This may not seem like a big deal, but if you're a collector of this kind of toy you know that they don't always get the kind of engineering and assembly that begets the toy-feel you crave.

Warpo Toys Legends of Cthulhu Spawn of Cthulhu Action Figure

The green plastic was given a light yellow belly and a dusting on his limbs for detail, plus painted black claws. The eyes are black and red, which basically disrupts the illusion that this is a classic action figure. Nothing from 1985 would look quite this good - you'd be lucky if some of your figures had one dot of paint on an eye.

It's hard to say "hey this figure is totally worth $20" but looking at inflation over the last few years, it's hard not to advocate buying one. Star Wars figures are $9, and this is about as good in terms of quality if not a smidgen better - everything looks and feels right, he can stand and sit, and has no problem carrying the Necronomicon book. It has lovely sculpted tentacles on the cover, too. If you compare these to some of the other things you've been buying, it probably falls on the lower end of favorable - its quality is there, it's just not big and impressive. It's a very good retro figure and I hope Warpo does more lines of this caliber, preferably soon before whatever momentum there is in this format dies. I like it, and I think you will too.
