Primitive Cthulhu

Over the years we've featured quite a few primitive-style Cthulhu figures.  This excellent take from César A is the first once actually percussion shaped from stone.  It's easy to imagine this piece showing up in an archeological dig.

From the Outer Worlds

Chris from ChunkANuke Props has one of, if not the, largest collection of Fallout props in the world.  That's why I wasn't too surprised to see he's a fan of The Outer Worlds, a game with both direct and spiritual ties to the Fallout franchise.  I expect this recreation of Rizzo's Purpleberry Lunch is the first of many TOW props we'll be seeing from him.

We Are Not Alone

Despite ample evidence to the contrary, so called "scientists" continue to insist that homo sapiens is the sole species of humanity still inhabiting the earth.  Those close minded bigots clearly haven't seen this specimen of a mermaid skull, brought to us by Emily E..
