Bargain of the day: cuddly Anubis

by Feòrag

Keep your plush Cthulhu company with this Anubis, God of the Dead Plush:

Egyptian god of the dead, represented as a black jackal or dog, or as a man with the head of a dog or jackal. After the early period of the Old Kingdom, he was superseded by Osiris as god of the dead, being relegated to a supporting role as a god of the funeral cult and of the care of the dead. The black colour represented the colour of human corpses after they had undergone the embalming process. In the Book of the Dead, he was depicted as presiding over the weighing of the heart of the deceased in the Hall of the Two Truths. His principal sanctuary was at the necropolis in Memphis and in other cities.
This poseable plush stands nearly 12 inches tall. Decked out in gold and jewels, this plush is a true representation of the God of the Dead.

He sounds good, but he's really tacky in comparison with plush Cthulhu. Maybe it's just the lack of tentacles.

Been a while since I've visited the Toy Vault site, I didn't know they had a larger Cthulhu, a gothic version or a mini Dracula. Must resist the lure of the elder god...

I adopted a mini Shoggoth yesterday. I also noted that Secret Agent Cthulhu is out. I will have to put up a shelf for them all.
