Following their big success on Kickstarter last year, Warpo's old-school style series of Lovecraftian action figures Legends of Cthulhu are getting a wider release as of today. But soon, their Cthulhu figure is getting a bumper-sized version — and io9 has an exclusive first look!

First off, the four 3.75" originally part of the kickstarter - The Deep One, The Professor, The Cultist, and the Spawn of Cthulhu - have been available to backers for a while now, but will now be available at hobby stores and comic shops across the US for $20 each. But if you're eager to have your very own little spawn of Cthulhu for your desk, you might want to hold off for a bit, because Warpo will be unveiling a plus sized 12" version of the Old God himself at Toyfair to go with his minions, and as you can see from the pictures below, it looks amazing:

You thought the spawn was bad enough? Here's Cthulhu himself! Even then he'd be almost cute if he wasn't an Elder God intent on ending the world.

The figure will cost $100 when it releases, details of which (as well as where you'll be able to get it) will be revealed on Monday during New York Toy fair. For now though, let's get our cult on and hail everyone's favourite Eldritch abomination. All together now: Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!
