A blast from the past, from the collection of Nick Storm.
This is a Cthulhu idol I put together over a decade ago, sometime around 1998. At the time I was living in New Bedford, MA and was involved in making small props for a murder mystery dinner theater group. I say "put together" as opposed to sculpted because it was assembled using parts from toys, in particular the body of the "Horrid" dragon from McFarlane toys and the head of an Admiral Ackbar 12-inch figure from Hasbro. Considering there was only a week available to finish the project it turned out surprisingly well.
Update: An emailer suggests that it would be almost impossible to create one of these today, at least on the cheap, because of the new lead testing standards for toys. Under the law every toy designed for children has to be tested for the presence of lead before it can be sold. Thrift stores, among them the Salvation Army, have opted to throw donated action figures into the trash rather than deal with the hassle of re-selling them. That leaves venues like Ebay as the only source of donor toys.
