Beware the Kraken!

Every VSFer worth his salt needs one of these or something similar!
The Kraken, by Black Cat Bases, is part of their Pirates of the Skeleton Seas range,


The Kraken is 135mm tall to the tip of the tallest tentacle, and the base is 115mm wide and 200mm long. Supplied as a multi-part kit - the 8 tentacles are separate to the body. The whole model is resin.

This creature reminds me of another relatively recent release:

One would hope to find that either of these creatures lived in solitary fashion. If one or the other hunts in packs, I'll lay odds on the thing-what-has-tentacles.

It would truly be fascinating to watch a clash between them, however...

One might suppose the particular incarnation of the zeitgeist that spawned both monsters stems from the Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean. But that'd only be a guess.
