SOTA Toys 'Dagon' figure

Dagon” (1917) is one of Lovecraft's earlier works which, as is often the case, a drug addicted narrator to whom the horror has presented itself and is often regarded as insane or delusional. In this case, the narrator who has survived a German U-boat attack finds himself adrift in a stolen life boat. After many days, he awakens to find the craft mired in a seaweed and ooze covered landscape, presumably risen from the ocean depths while he slept. Venturing out, he comes across a huge hieroglyphic covered monolith which is soon joined by a monstrous aquatic being almost too terrible to describe. The narrator flees back to his boat and managesto get rescued only to have his story met with unyielding skepticism.

This figure is one interpretation of this being and it's a doozy! Roughly 6” high and 7” wide with all the appendages fully extended, I find almost impossible to describe so I guess I shouldn't be too hard on the story's narrator. There are eight tentacles in a tight cluster at the bottom with four grasping arms above. The gaping jaws do little to distract from the three pairs of eyes above its toothy maw. This thing would be a monster no matter how big it was! My hat's off to the sculptor. The four arms and head are swivel jointed so there is a certain degree of ability to pose the figure.

The video of rotating display of Dagon had no sound track.
