Review - Medium Shoggoth for Cthulhu Mythos from Fenris Games

The sculpt was completed by 2011 february. The production by Tengu Models probably started at the same time. Production was taken over by Fenris Games some time before 2015.

The metal from original production by Tengu Models contained lead. I don't have info on the Fenris Games models, but I'm almost sure they are lead-free.

There are no pre-drilled holes in the main body to insert the tentacles. You need to drill them anywhere you wish to insert them.
