Each figurine will be packaged with a QR code giving collectors access to the artist’s previously unreleased track personally curated by the estates of Rivers, Hicks and Bruce.
In a statement Melissa Rivers, Joan’s daughter, joked, “I think the term stick figure can be a bit ambitious for a woman who decides to do a martini exercise.” She added, “Still, it’s a pleasure to see my mother in captivity, and I really mean captivity.”
Pre-orders will begin on August 16, in honor of National Prank Day, at NcelleStore.com.
