After more than a year of development from start to finish, Adam Quesnell announced the release of his first limited edition mini-figure, Despair!
Despair is a demon from the 10th Circle of Hell; the level where people who make bad cinematic adaptations of classic toy properties are flayed for eternity. Not your average demon, Despair suffers from severe anxiety disorder and crippling depression.
Satan himself banished Despair from Hell for being a major bummer.
Cast out upon the earth in a fiery geyser of lava and tears, Despair landed in the parking lot of a comedy club that was hosting a weekly open mic night. Despair put his name on the sign-up sheet, got on stage, and told his story. Since then, he has been punishing himself, night after night, on comedy stages of varying quality throughout the Midwest. He dances and lashes himself for audiences with hopes of selling t-shirts and CDs to drunk people who will not wear or listen to them.
The figures will be available at 6:66pm (cst) on Halloween at faqcomedy.bigcartel.com in Marbled Orange and Blue (20), Stealth (10), GiD (10), Neon Green (20), Neon Purple, (20), Neon Orange (20), Hot Pink (20), Flesh (20), Red (15) and Blue (20). They won't be sold blind, so first come first serve. A Red and Black Marbled colorway will be released at a later date at standupcrap.com.
Additionally, we'll have a very limited run of exclusive Tenacious Toys blue Despairs in the near future. We'll post more info on those as it appears.
