Review - Shoggoth for Call of Cthulhu from Grenadier Models / Mirliton

The original casts from the 1990s contained lead. I'm sure that recent products are lead-free.

Modelers reported that the Shoggoth has hard mould lines you need to file off. Although they did not report about the Small Shoggoth, this model might have similar problems.
