Through the Gates of Madness
Inspired by LEGO's Adventurers themes and H.P. Lovecrafts Cthulhu Mythos stories: this is Cthulego!
About this creation
Delta Green agents traced a delivery of stolen ancient Egyptian artifacts to the northern Californian town of Arcata and the grounds of Kadath & Son Refrigerated Storage. The recovery of the artifacts seemed easy at first, re-con was undertaken and a sniper position set up in the tree line. Then seven trained agents entered in a covered truck.


Unfortunately the agents entered during some kind of pseudo-religious ceremony at which the ‘mummy’ was seen to become ‘re-animated’. A short gun battle followed during which the mummy was restrained and held captive with the assistance of Professor Warren Bedford using knowledge gained from an ancient tome. The mummy was loaded onto the truck and the agents rammed through the gates of the Refrigerated Storage yard to escape.


Their accounts are somewhat muddled from this point, though most surviving agents agree that some kind of creature, perhaps more than one, was involved in an attempt to block their way. Also several claim to have seen some kind of flying ‘Things’ equipped with exotic weaponry. All agree the intervention of a mysterious stranger from the rooftop of the Kadath and Sons offices was instrumental in clearing their escape route.


Agents Thunder and Reed have tendered their resignation from Delta Green and returned to their previous occupation of ‘Explorer.’ Both were last seen boarding a tramp freighter heading out into the Pacific Ocean.






Elder Things: “Rigid barrel-shaped object[s] with thin horizontal arms radiating spoke-like from a central ring and with vertical knobs or bulbs projecting from the head and base of the barrel. Each of these knobs was the hub of a system of five long, flat, triangular tapering arms arranged around it like the arms of a starfish.” – H.P. Lovecraft.




The Doctor and Captain Jack lend a hand.


















Nyarlathotep: “A tall, slim figure with the face of an antique pharaoh, with prismatic robes and crowned with a pshent that glowed with inherent light… the fascination of a fallen god or archangel, and around whose eyes there lurked a capricious humor.” – H.P. Lovecraft.




Johnny Thunder!!









Built: June 2009
Set: sometime between 1930 and 1950.

Wow! Great MOC and even better action shots. The truck is a great build, chrome bumper and all. It's a riot that Dr. Who made a cameo appearance in this MOC.

I love the whole Cthulhu theme anyhow and your creations are great. Hey do you think you could convince Lego to start making Chtulhu themed sets??? Probably won't happen but it's worth a shot!

Holy crap dude, this stuff rules! The elder thing is unbelievable, have you made any Yithians as yet, and is that a Shoggoth I see in front of the building? I was planning to do my own Cthulu style Moc's, but I think I'll leave that to you mate. I will however, having been inspired, finish my investigator's custom 20's car which has helped him survive many a tussle with the Mythos. Your RPG's sessions must never be wanting for props! Top stuff...

That red beast is crazy, and the building facade has that "could easily have been the next CC-style set release" look.

Wow! that's quite random. I know you designed the powere miners crystal sweeper, so this is better I think. why doesn't the LEGO company make sets like this?

Iä! Iä! Nyarlathotep has risen! All nerdiness aside, this is one amazing diorama. I just love all the details, and the monsters are brilliant, especially the Elder Things and their chrome weapons. Tekeli-li! Keep the Mythos rolling, there are precious few Lovecraft builders our there.

Very pleased that you decided to do more Cthulego as they have all been favourite MOCs from these pages for me. Superb sense of action as always, crammed with detail and the unusual. Plus, Captain Jack! I've loved the 10th Doctor showing up in your scenes, but now Torchwood are here too. Brilliant, and good to hear you've got some more planned.

Quoting Milan CMadge Brilliant! I see you got the brickarms prototypes! Where did you get the barbed wire from???
Nope - No Brickarms used here - all of this is LEGO elements (except the printed sign) including the barbed wire which came mainly from a few copies of the Agents Motorcycle/Swamp set.

Beautiful photography throughout. I've never read the stories this is based on, but I was drawn in by the details. I loved the look on the mummy's face: the moment I scrolled to that scene made this a memorable MOC for me.

Inspiration at its best,oh the joy that lego brings. By the way this is probably the only 'Run 'n' Gun' scene without brickarms wich is tempting not to do, plus you used the hideous lego mafia gun, and made it have a good purpose, excellent job.

Camera angles: beautiful. Truck design: Magnifique. Inclusion of Doctor Who: YES. I will say, though, Johnny Thunder with a fleshy chest makes him look über tan, is that purposeful? In any case, wonderful job, now if you'll excuse me, I've got to go mope over the fact that I don't own 90% of the bricks used, a lot are alien to me.

Simply put, this is awsome. All of the details are fabulous, and the merging of themes is great! Nice use of the space police minifigures for the officer (?) and mummy! -Danny

Where to begin? Excellent details, a lot of action -- the truck smashing through the debris is a great touch -- first rate intrepretion of storyline, superb fig choice and positioning (plus, Johnny Thunder!), and great use of parts. The "flying thingys" are superb; this is one fantastic piece of work.

What head did you use for the mummy? Is that from a kit? I like the truck and the wooden gate. The whole thing is quite impressive.
