Hillary Clinton Action Figure

We've turned Hillary Clinton into an Action Figure!

We started with one simple goal; to make Hillary Clinton into an awesome iconic action figure. Basically, we're hoping to kick off some light-hearted excitement about her campaign and the amazingly cool prospect of America getting its first woman president. 

After months and months of work, we're all ready to go!

A Toy For All Ages! And Genders!

She's not a "Doll". She's an Action Figure and there's a good reason why. Dolls like Barbie have a long history of sending out the wrong message to girls. Hillary Clinton is the antidote to that message, and this toy was designed to reflect that.

Future Leader of the Free World - Well, that ticks the box for "positive female role model", right? In fact, she's a role model for all humans. To drive home the point, we've compiled this leadership guide featuring some notable non-humans...

The Art of Making a Great Action Figure

Mike Leavitt

We set out from the beginning to create a figure that could genuinely meet the lofty goals we wrote about up top. We want it to become one of the iconic symbols of what should be a very special moment in history. 

There were a few elements we had to get "just right". The most important of these was the sculpture of Hillary. Scaling someone down to 6 inches is harder than you might think. Lucky for us, we are friends with artist Mike Leavitt, a renowned artist (and free spirit) who is famous for making satirical sculptures in the form of action figures. The Hillary Action Figure was sculpted by Mike and is his first unlimited edition piece ever.

Behind The Scenes

This project is being run by the design team at FCTRY, a small product design studio in Brooklyn. Our specialty is creating fun products that combine Pop Art with mass production. 

We also happen to be the people who created the Obama Action Figure back in 2008. That product's success enabled us to quit our day jobs and pursue our own little American dream, for which we will be eternally grateful to Barack Obama and all of his idealistic, optimistic supporters who were willing to have a laugh with us. We hope this ride will be as magical as that one was. It's been a long time coming. 

We've gone on to create lots of fun, quirky products since then - Mustache Pacifiers, Gummy Bear Night Lights, Designer Keyboard Covers, to name a few - but this one is a labor of love. It's a chance to return to our roots and support a cause we believe in, in our own unique way.

If we get this product off the ground, we will find various ways to use it to help Hillary's campaign. Promise.

Risks and challenges

This project is backed by FCTRY. We're a small company but we've got a lot of know-how and experience when it comes to creating products. The Hillary Action Figure has already been designed, tooled, and tested for every safety standard. We are 100% ready for mass production and worldwide distribution. We just need your funding to help us cover the costs of running the first batch of mass produced units. We've got all the rest covered.

The biggest risk here is that if you DON'T support this project you could be sending potential opponents the message that Hillary might be beatable.
