Cthulhu Fhtagn! Molinares Edition.

This is actually a follow-up post to one I made back in 2009 about an amazing Cthulhu bust that was offered by Detour Studios. I wasn't able to find much information about it at the time, but I was recently contacted by one of the creators. The original sculpt was done by Eric Molinaris and then cast by John Jones in July of 2004 in Haynes City, Florida.  The bust was available in kit form and appears to have been sold primarily through mail order and conventions.

The pictures below are of a finished kit from the incredibly talented artist at 3Demonic.

There are still a few unattributed Cthulhu sculpts floating around, but I'm glad I was finally able to attach a name to this one. One of the nice side effects of covering such a niche interest for so long is that the site becomes a Google magnet for the subject. Hopefully more creators of the various "mystery" sculpts will end up here and be able to take credit for their work in the future.

Perhaps an unattributed-prop roundup post would make good blogfodder?

@ elmo iscariot

That's an excellent idea. I'll try and put something together for this weekend.

His last name is spelled Molinaris, with an 'i' instead of 'e'. He is a fabulously talented artist. I learned much from him
