DESPAIR 3″ FIGURE COMING SOON

IMG_3813

 

Just in time for Halloween the 3″ Despair figure who was banished by Satan will be making it to a website near you. This 100% UV Resistant Rubber figure in the vein M.U.S.C.L.E. Style Flesh Edition courtesy of Tru:Tek will be available in limited quantities and even comes with an album download code for Stand Up Records.

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.
