This morning the Spanish site Aullidos got a slew of imagery from Jose Luis Aleman’s La Herencia de Valdemar (The Valdemar Inheritance). Never heard of it? Neither had we until today!
You might recall a news story we did a while back about a new documentary being put together called Lovecraft: Fear of the Unkown, all about the eponymous author’s life and history. All’s been quiet for a while regarding the doc, but finally we got some good news from one of its producers!

The last time we looked at SOTA Toys' upcoming 14" tall resin Cthulhu statue, we knew it was coming in green and some varients were to follow (“SOTA Unleashes a Big Old One” – February 2008). Well, today we got in the pics of what the Old One would look like in a couple different shades.
Now this is what I’m talking about! Though we’ve not seen much from SOTA Toys in a long time, they made up for their silence with the badass Old Ones you see below. Super Cthulhu! A brand-new resin statue that’s a whole new look at your real god. Sideshow will also be carrying a variant of the figure, so you get a choice of your Cthulhu! The statue will be making it’s way out in June of this year, so look for it, people!
