WARPO ANNOUNCES LIMITED EDITION GLOW IN THE DARK 12” CTHULHU
CHICAGO, IL (June 15, 2015): Warpo, the indie toy company setting the bar in the creation of new retro toys, announces today the latest addition to the Legends of Cthulhu action figure line, the forthcoming glow in the dark, 12” Cthulhu. With an MSRP of $125, the glow in the dark 12” Cthulhu will have a limited production run of 300, and is expected to become an instant coveted collectible.
The glow in the dark 12” Cthulhu will feature removable wings, 7 points of articulation, and pliable “gripping hands”, suited for grasping 3.75” action figures to their doom. The figure will be packaged in an early 1980s-style, full-color and individually numbered box, featuring brand new artwork by legendary artist Ken Kelly. This new figure joins the Legends of Cthulhu line, which consists of the four original 3.75” figures, as well as the standard 12” Cthulhu, to be released this summer.
