October 14, 2009: Are You Looking For Cthulhu Toys For Halloween?
Of course you are. While we can help you out when it comes to Cthulhu-themed games (Munchkin Cthulhu is ready for action right now and Chez Cthulhu is heading your way), and we even have an assortment of Chibithulhu plush toys, I'm afraid that you're going to have to venture into the wild to find a wide variety of Cthulhu toys. Fortunately, the crew over at Sci Fi Wire have put together a list of "14 Great Cthulhu Toys that Make Devouring Souls Fun."
Top of the list is John Kovalic's My Little Cthulhu vinyl toy. And a few notches down we find his Mythos Buddies toys (mistakenly labeled as "Cthulhu Buddies" toys in the article). Both of these were manufactured by Dreamland Toyworks and are available now. (I've got a complete set of Mythos Buddies, thanks to a shipment from David over at Dreamland, and I can happily report that they're great little vinyl toys. And compared to a lot of the designer vinyl toys I pick up, especially Ashley Wood's insane robot toys, these Mythos Buddies toys are priced extremely low.)
There are also a few different plush Cthulhu toys on the list (some of which we offer on Warehouse 23, if you need a plush Cthulhu or two for Halloween), some handmade stuff, and items I'd never heard of before. It's a fun list.
