The Stars Must Not Have Been Right

So, after THE THING (SPACE THING as they called it) kit from Dark Horse we were going to make this Cthulhu kit, which my wife Andrea sculpted. Molds and plans were made etc and then it was decided it was too expensive, wouldn't sell etc etc and was dropped and never spoken of again. A design addition we added, which some might not like, was to give Cthulhu a mouth under those waving tentacles. After all It ate things so might have had a mouth which nobody saw... until it was too late. My hope was to have a line of cool kits made following classic "horror fiction" monsters as they were described in the original texts. Alas it was not to be. If anybody wants to produce the kits, Gentle Giant might still have the molds, I dunno. Bottom line: here is another thing that might have been.
