Burrower Beneath
A Cthulhu Mythos inspired Adventurers diorama.
About this creation
"That is not dead which can eternal lie, And with strange aeons, even death may die."

This is the second large diorama in my Cthulhu/Adventurers theme: Cthulego.

The Cthulhu Mythos is originates in the books and short stories by the author HP Lovecraft.

In this diorama Johnny Thunder and his friends have entered an old mine working in the American west. Unfortunately the creatures that drove the original miners away have been awoken by their actions! This has not been good news for Lord Sinister who was about to arrive in force and take over the exploration, the treasure would have been his! Instead he and his men are in deep trouble. Meanwhile a Migo (ancient intelligent creature) had summoned the undead of the old Native American sacred city to drive away (or kill) the humans before the creatures where awakened, too late. Fortunately for all the secret government agency Delta Green have arrived in force with heavy weaponry, they should be able to drive the creature back below ground (providing their jeep lands in one piece). Oh yeah, The Doctor and companion have also arrived, bad timing as usual Doctor!

   Things are looking bad for our heroes. Tentacles everywhere!



Enlarge image
   Though at least they aren't in as much trouble as this guy.



Enlarge image
   Just popped out to say hello!



Enlarge image
   Run away!!!



Enlarge image
   Stab it! That's sure to stop it eating you...



Enlarge image
   Yeehaaa! Okay who said government agents were bright? Well if they land okay everything will be fine!



Enlarge image
   Monsters in the old mine - and no sign of Scooby and the Gang anywhere!



Enlarge image
   The flying creature is a Migo. It's trying to stop the monsters from being disturbed by summoning the undead to kill the humans. So really it's a good guy...?



Enlarge image
   Okay, maybe not.



Enlarge image
   Never volunteer to be lowered down the old abandoned mine shaft, it's never the best life choice out there.



Enlarge image
   Roar!



Enlarge image
   Smashing!



Enlarge image
   The Wacky Races have been getting tougher...



Enlarge image
   Here come Delta Green - by plane and by jeep!



Enlarge image
   "When we say 'sacred and forbidden' there's a flipping good reason!"



Enlarge image
   Dakka-dakka-dakka! Take that slimy tentically thing!



Enlarge image
   Okay if I lean out far enough I can drop the dynamite into it's mouth!



Enlarge image
   The Sherriff is just glad someone else is here to do the paperwork.



Enlarge image
   Lots going on in Utah today.



Enlarge image
   Wheee!



Enlarge image
   Okay who ordered the killer gerkin?



Enlarge image
   From above they all look like little model people!



Enlarge image
   Yum! Mercenary for breakfast!



Enlarge image
   From above the true scale of the horror is pretty!



Enlarge image
   Johnny Thunder - never give up!



Enlarge image
   Pippin Reed - really should stop reading ancient scrolls out loud!



Enlarge image
   The Doctor - has to be asking why he always lands in these kinds of places instead of on nice sunny beaches!

Hey Mark, I'm sure you've probably been asked this before... But would you consider entering this into LEGO Cuusoo? I'm sure that there's a large fanbase for Lovecraft's works, but those unfamiliar with his work (small children) would still be interested in the Adventure characters. And if LEGO didn't feel like like revitalizing the Johnny Thunder theme (as awesome as that would be!), the new Pharaoh's quest adventureres could be used instead. Now, I don't know if you being a LEGO designer prevents you from entering, but if you could you'd have great insight into exactly how the set creation process works. Besides, according to the rules, you're the only one who can post it (being the creator). Anyway, just a thought. These are some of my all-time favorite MOCs, especially with those Doctor Who references.
