It seemed to be a sort of monster [...] of a form which only a diseased fancy could conceive. [...] A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings; but it was the general outline of the whole which made it most shockingly frightful.
– H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu
Otherworldly horrors tear at the thin fabric of reality, seeking to intrude on our dimension for their own inscrutable purposes. To look upon their terrifying forms is to risk insanity, for these shapeless beasts have a strange, almost mesmerizing beauty. Those unfortunate individuals who lay eyes on such cosmic abominations are often drawn inexplicably toward them, and into their own merciful demise.

@Dumon: MoM runs under the "Arkham Horror Files" line, so it fits. The monster chits in AH and MoM have all the vital information in the same places, so you can easily swap the MoM chit with the AH chit in the base.
Wow, Meggy, Dumon - really? I mean REALLY?
And yes, they can be easily used in Arkham. Just put the tile in the back slot. Really. I mean people have been asking for Arkham monster figures since the base game came out and now they found a way to make them for more than one game (pretty smart).
Arkham works "properly." So does, Mansions, Elder Sign and the Cthulhu LCG.
The figures look great in the photos. This actually makes it harder for me to attempt to paint seeing what skilled painters can do.
I'm happy FFG still finds ways to add stuff to the Arkham line after all this time.
I mean, really?
Its nice and all, that they are called "Arkham Horror Monsters". However, the only way I can see them being used in a meaningful way is if you put the monster marker in the back, being held by the one (or possibly two) hooks there.
So they are only useful for Mansions of Madness. Nowhere else in the Arkham Horror line.
This might be misleading prospective buyers!!!!
This is something I've been waiting to see. I'm so excited that it's finally happening!
Great figures...they will come in handy when game works properly.
