Lucid Eye Publications offer several eclectic figures range, all with intriguing names like ‘Savage Core’ or ‘Blades and Souls’. One such is the ‘Toons’ range. Perfectly fitting their title, the Toons are squat but perfectly formed miniatures, designed to look like cartoon characters. The Toons range is sub-divided into: Toon Realms, Supers and Terrors. This latest Toon release is from the later Toon Terrors category.
With more than a slight nod to H.P. Lovecraft’s Call of Cthulhu mythos, the Toon Terrors are weird creatures from another world, or possibly another dimension, described by Lucid Eye as ‘A Cartoon themed range of Cosmic Terrors’. In line with other Lucid Eye ranges, we are given more background information by being told the Toon Terrors inhabit the town and environs of “Old Port” – “What terrors await in the spooky streets, the dank docks and the gruelling graveyards after dark?”
Clearly theses lovingly designed and well-cast figures await somewhere in Old Port – at a cost of £6 for a pack of four or £3.50 for the single Shallow King figure (see below).
