Trump Gets ‘Re-Action’ Figure Treatment
Toymaker FCTRY has produced a Donald Trump action figure. The company recently made Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton action figures as well.
The Hill reports:
Donald Trump is getting the action figure treatment.
Starting Wednesday, production design company FCTRY is accepting pre-orders for what it’s dubbing an “over re-action figure” of the GOP presidential nominee.
A description of the $20 toy takes jabs at the White House hopeful, saying the Trump figure features “removable hair for easy cleaning,” “Twitter-sized hands approved by little Marco Rubio,” “sturdy and durable shoes for stepping on feelings,” and a raised middle finger that “sends a message.”
The action figure, the company says, was “created for the lovers and haters.”
FCTRY says it will donate a portion of all proceeds “to the most un-Trumpy cause, Border Angels, a non-profit that helps Mexican migrants.”
“We were pretty hesitant to make the Trump action figure, but knew that it was going to make a splash once we added the middle finger and found the perfect cause to donate a portion of the proceeds to,” FCTRY CEO Jason Feinberg said in a statement to ITK.
The same team behind the figurine also produced a doll inspired by former Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) that raised nearly $250,000 on Kickstarter. The company also sells a $20 “Ready for Action” figure of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
