H.P. Lovecraft & The Great Old One: Cthulhu Stretch Goals Revealed!

"If you have warriors, now is the time."

Obi-Wan Kenobi said that to the people of Utapau as his army arrived to retake the planet. Warpers, we too are on the verge of battle! But instead of a sink-hole planet, our war is waged on a digital landscape. IGN (http://www.ign.com/) has just broken the story of our next two stretch goal reveals; The Author (H.P. Lovecraft) and the 12" Great Old One: Cthulhu. Through IGN, we hope to reach an entirely new audience for Legends of Cthulhu which means new pledgers. And realistically, the only way we are going to unlock these two goals is to capture new pledgers.

This is where you come-in, our Warpo-Elite Shock Troopers! We need YOU to spread the word of Legends of Cthulhu and these awesome stretch goals like you've never spread them before. You can do this by...

1) Going to the link at:

http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/06/24/legends-of-cthulhu-retro-action-figure-kickstarter-adds-12-cthulhu-hp-lovecraft

create an account (or use your Facebook, Google plus, or Yahoo), log in, and leave a comment on the article. The more comments we get on the article, the longer it will stay on the front page. The longer we stay on the front page, the more people we will reach.

2) Make sure all your friends, family, and social groups see them too.While we feel that we've done a good job of reaching out to Lovecraft community and vintage toy fans, we need those who are on the periphery...those whose major passions aren't Lovecraft or toys.

Send them directly to the Kickstarter page (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/warpo/legends-of-cthulhu-retro-action-figure-toy-line) or Kickstarter.com (and search "Warpo") or send them here: http://www.warpo.com/kickstarter/

So think long and deep about your friends and acquaintances. Remember that girl who had a Cthulhu plush on her couch when you went to her house to play boardgames? What about that guy you always run into at the comic store who loves horror comics? What about that childhood friend you used to play Star Wars with who still complains that his mom gave away his figures when he went to college?

The 12" Great Old One: Cthulhu was Warpo's dream piece from our very first brainstorm...and we imagine it was the first thing that came to YOUR mind when you saw the line. We want to bring him to you more than anything. But we can only do it with your help. Let's rock this to Russia, Warpers!

Sincerely,

WARPO Bryan, Tommy, and Eric
