SOTA Toys and GECCO 'Nyarlathotep' figures.

The very cool (but expensive) version sculpted by Paul Komoda from GECCO.

Nyarlathotep (aka The Crawling Chaos) is a character found in Lovecraft's prose and poetry although other authors have used him/it in stories in the so-called Cthulhu Mythos. Though usually depicted as an Egyptian pharaoh whose powers seem to be the ability to influence others, it can and does appear in many forms to horrific to describe, a common theme in Lovecraft's fiction.

Such a form is shown here in another figure from SOTA Toys “Nightmares Of Lovecraft” line. Unfortunately, I don't have this one in my collection (one of these days though...) but I felt I would be remiss in not providing a few photos I've downloaded. From my research, it can come in either white or black. It stands about 13 inches tall and is roughly ten inches wide.

It is perched on three writhing tentacles with another extending upwards with a gaping mouth in it. There are smaller tentacles and goat legs (!!!) about the mouth which, if this figure follows the others, MAY have a degree of movement but I can't say for certain.
