my fellow Cthulhu fan(I assume you are after how excited you were to get the model LOL)... Kaiju Combat (a game being made by the team that brought the world Godzillaestroy all Monsters Melee, Godzilla:Save The Earth, Rampage Total Destruction, and Godzilla unleashed) is a new giant monster fighting game the team is trying to get funded on kickstarter in October. We just need folks to sign up on the forums and give your input. This game is using a voting system to get various monsters into the game (Cthulhu is a major one being voted on right now and will be in game if we get enough votes for him on his poll according to the creators of the game) and we need forum members to vote and give feedback so we can make this game the best it can be!

Cool, I play almost exclusively now indi games - but more on the strategy side to be fair (think of games like SpaceChem). The thing about Cthulhu is that he is a "safe" bet for a monster, not only is he popular and loveable [link] and recognisable, with this choice, it would not be stepping on anyone's toes - by which I mean legally - where as, if a Balrog was chosen for example, things could get very sticky with the Tolkien estate I bet.
