By now you've heard the hype. There's a new force in the Democratic Party. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been called a game changer, a radical, a firebrand. But mostly people just call her...   

Can we rewind for a second though? 

Just two years ago, AOC was an anonymous 20-something waiting tables and tending bars in New York City, and now she is literally one of the most influential politicians in the United States. Things like this don't happen in real life, right?  

But it is happening and we are all witnesses. What makes it even crazier is that she's just getting started. Like, if this were a trilogy, we’re probably only about 45 minutes into part one — aka the origin story — so let's recap...

AOC by the numbers

We're toymakers, not prophets, so take what we say with a grain of salt. But, we've got a pretty good track record of spotting real-life heroes in the making and from where we sit, AOC has the makings of a legend. So we're doing what we do best and turning her into an action figure. 

Our mission is to create fun, beautiful toys that depict real life role models in a relatable way. We've got nothing against super heroes or cartoon characters (really we don't!) but we believe that whether you're a child or an adult, we all need to connect to heroes who inspire us in a way that feels attainable. 

If funded, AOC will be the latest addition to our line of Real Life Action Figures. This has been an ongoing collaboration between us (FCTRY) and Mike Leavitt, a Seattle-based artist and activist.

Like Mike's fine art pieces, the figures are one part product and one part social commentary, exploring who we idolize in contemporary culture and how we do it. 

It's a commercial endeavor, but we really do believe in the ideals of heroes we portray. We try to align each action figure with a social mission that matches the values of its real-life counterpart. If this project gets funded, we plan to align AOC's figure with the Sunrise Movement—a grassroots organization that works alongside the real AOC, championing the Green New Deal.

The only thing we need to bring this concept into reality now is you. The prototype is ready. We have the know-how to produce and deliver it, which is backed by our long track record of delivering on all our Kickstarter promises. The only question is whether the world is ready for AOC.

AOC Kickstarter Stretch Goals

Risks and challenges

This project is being run by FCTRY. Even though we're kind of funny, we've got plenty of technical know-how and experience when it comes to creating and distributing products.

If you fund it, we will deliver it. Guaranteed.

However, we will say that delivery dates are not guaranteed. We do our very best to deliver on time (or better), but product development is not a science and delays here and there may arise from unexpected causes. Like, for example, if the President impulsively decides to ban the import of our products because – let's be honest – much crazier things have happened lately.
