Warpo's new line of Lovecraft-inspired action figures is a direct throwback to the era of blister packs, five points of articulation, and tiny plastic accessories. The creators talked to us about their dream of a Saturday morning animated series about Cthulhu, and showed off some killer concept art.
Everything about Warpo has a pitch-perfect retro 80s feel, from the fuzzy VHS commercial for Legends of Cthulhu to using Ken Kelly to create the package art. If you're not familiar with Kelly, you'll recognize his art from KISS' Destroyer album cover, and the cover to Rainbow's Rainbow Rising, not to mention a ton of comic books and classic toy lines. Warpo is also working with sculptor Eddy Mosqueda, who was senior sculptor at Mattel in the mid-80s, designing some of our favorite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Masters of the Universe figures. They've basically assembled an action figure dream team.
