MAN-E-NEWS// The “1st Anniversery” Halloween Despair keshi from Adam Quesnell…

unnamed-63

“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 even 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.”

Having seen a number of exclusive releases earlier in the year, the debut figure from comedian and avid toy collector Adam Quesnell – DESPAIR – is finally set to return for a special First Anniversary Halloween release for all you diehard collectors out there! Originally created to celebrate the release of his album “Can We Afford This Much Despair?” on Stand Up! Records, Adam teamed up with illustrator Terence Brown II, October Toys, and our very own Tru:Tek of the Disart Toylabs to bring this sad little guy to life. Standing at around 3″ of 100% UV resistant rubber, the super squishy figure was designed by Terrance and sculpted by the OT team, this time around coming cast in a candy corn inspired GID, orange and yellow marble by Tru:Tek… Touching down in Adam’s store on Saturday, October 31st at 6.66am CST (7.06am!), the figure has been limited to just 5 this time around, each coming packed with a download code for Adam’s album for just $25 each shipped in the US… But that’s not all! Continuing the anniversary celebrations, Adam will also be offering up the last of the standard Despair colorways for just $20 each. So if you missed out the first time, now is your chance to pick these sad little creatures up!
