Warpers Unite!

Today we revealed our next two stretch goals The Author (H.P. Lovecraft) & 12" The Great Old One: Cthulhu to thunderous applause thanks to Warpers everywhere! We hope you're knee-deep in spreading the news to everyone who will listen because we'll only unlock them if we get new backers. Below are more details...

$140,000 Stretch Goal Reveal

• Stretch Goal Item: THE AUTHOR (H.P. Lovecraft)

• Goal amount: $140,000

• Biography: As a member of the research faculty at Miskatonic University, the Author has written numerous scientific papers and essays on the Necronomicon and its relation to unexplainable modern day events. Despite his devotion to his work, he prefers to remain anonymous, staying out of the daily conflicts that rage unnoticed by the majority of mankind.

However, as the world's leading authority on the Necronomicon, the Professor often seeks the Author's aid when faced with unfathomable horror...and has exhausted every other option. Sometimes the Author will assist him. Sometimes he will not. No one knows the Author's true motivations or whether his allegiances ultimately lie with the human race or the unseen terrors that seek to reclaim power on earth and beyond.

• Description: Warpo's Author action figure is approxomately 3 3/4" tall and features a brand new head-sculpt based on the likeness of the man responsible for these wonderful mythos; H.P. Lovecraft. He wears a black suit and comes with a Necronomicon accessory.

• How do I get him? Everyone who has backed at The Cultist Level or higher will receive The Author action figure that will be exclusively manufactured for our Kickstarter supporters. This item will not be produced again so this stretch goal will be quite a rare piece of Warpo memorabilia.

Again, please remember that ONLY supporters at "THE CULTIST LEVEL" or higher will receive the FREE stretch goal rewards like this one. If you are at a lower tier and would like to receive stretch goals rewards just raise your contribution appropriately and chose a new level at "THE CULTIST LEVEL" or higher.

$200,000 Stretch Goal Reveal

• Stretch Goal Item: THE GREAT OLD ONE: CTHULHU

• Goal amount: $200,000

• Biography: With a name unpronoucable by the human tongue, the Great Old One who came from the stars lies in a death-like sleep, or “dreaming,” in the city of R'lyeh which long-ago sunk beneath the sea. His influence is as insidious as it it legendary filling the dreams of humans and influencing them in ways we can't possibly understand.

Will his human worshippers and monsterous servents awaken him? Or will the seemingly inconsequential experiment of another alien race, aka humans, find a way to stop him...or at least keep him in his current slumbering state?

• Description: Warpo's Cthulhu action figure is massive and will tower over the 3 3/4” action figures in your collection. He is approximately 12" tall and features posable wings and an additional seven points of articulation. Two of these points are at the wrist which make his gripping-hands even better suited to grasping and holding figures...and chasing down toy steam ships! He will be packaged in a 1979-81 period style box featuring artwork from Ken Kelly.

From the start, making this figure was the ultimate goal for Legends of Cthulhu. He will be the centerpiece of the collection but will also stand proudly in his own right. So Warpo took special care to design him in a way that is authentic to monsterous toys from the era while at the same time making him appealing to modern toy collectors and Lovecraft fans who may not even collect toys.

• How do I get him? Everyone who has backed at The Cultist Level or higher will be elligable to purchase this add-on once we reach the $200,000 stretch goal. (We will reveal details on price as we get closer to that goal.)

Again, please remember that ONLY supporters at "THE CULTIST LEVEL" or higher are eligible to purchase this stretch goal add-on. If you are at a lower tier and would like to be able to purchase this figure, raise your contribution appropriately and chose a new level that is at "THE CULTIST LEVEL" or higher.

Keep spreading the word, Warpers! It's all up to you now. Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!

Sincerely,

WARPO

      Booyah! I called it!

      Now if someone were to tell me how much the big green beastie is going to cost, then I just might add it to my pledge...

    3. Steph Kelley on

      I sure hope I can afford him!

      I, for one, welcome our new tentacled overlords!

      Though if the price were made public, some of us might up our pledges pre-emptively to meet that goal...?

      I am so friggin' psyched!

      "He will be packaged in a 1979-81 period style box featuring artwork from Ken Kelly." And this just made it so I'll be ordering two of them.
