"Many adepts assume that Cthulhu, as the One From Beyond, does not think much of machines. "On the contrary, Cthulhu's reasoning is not bound by human expectation. When the fancy or whim strikes the Great One, It will use a mechanical carriage, a golem that is also a throne, so that it can walk as a physical giant in this world. Cthulhu then manifests a small part of itself as the mechanical throne's head. "Do not make the mistake of thinking that all you have to do is attack the head - that would be the same as an ant trying to sting the foot of an elephant. While the avatar may be dispersed, and the throne abandoned, it is equally likely that the Great One will take an interest in you. "Then, you will find out what is used as fuel in the furnace that is in this monstrosity's belly." Notes: This build started out with me having extra large-figure parts that I had bought when I first got into Lego again. Years passed, until I found an octopus piece in a recent Lego brick community sale and exhibit.
For some reason, I simply thought of Cthulhu sitting on top of a mecha. The original idea was to have many tentacles in a vaguely bipedal form, but as I developed this idea more and more, it ended up looking like some sort of ancient golem that had a mix of influences from Ancient South American civilizations, and Ancient India.
It was originally in translucent red parts, but it was pointed out to me that blue might be better, since it does have an octopus for a head. I've actually minimised the details and gimmicks of the figure at this point - it used to have wings and a tail, but it started to be too cluttered in terms of detail.
This version should be okay until the next time I get a new idea for it. Many thanks to all the MoC builders and sellers who, in their own ways, allowed me to get most of the parts for this build.
