Lets say an investigator is devoured at the start of his upkeep by the Dust Deck of the Mummy GOO. When does his replacement enter play and when the replacement can act? Is the player supposed to wait a whole turn until the next upkeep phase? How about if an investigator is devoured during the movement phase?

Thanks in advance!

Can't recall if there is anything official on this. Some start the new investigator from the next phase over, so if Dust Deck kills, movement phase (missing Upkeep doesn't matter since the new investigator can set his/her stats where they want). Others skip the rest of the turn for the investigator.

I replace them at the start of the next upkeep phase. So, with Quachil Uttaus, I'd start them right away. With Ghatanothoa, who devours during movement if the wrong chit is drawn, there are only three investigators to complete the Arkham and Other World Encounters phases.

The first time I ever used him, on Mythos one, the first clue appeared at the Science Building and Mandy was devoured picking up the pair during movement.

The only reason it isn't a record is because she was second player.

I think immediately is implied, but since most of my games are with groups, I tell the player that he can start has soon as he's ready but we won't wait for him. They always get the new investigator put together by the beginning of the next turn. When I play solo, I start the new investigator during the next Upkeep.
