When Brooklyn-based product design firm FCTRY launched a Kickstarter campaign for a Nancy Pelosi action figure, they said they'd unlock a Dr. Anthony Fauci figure too, if they hit their funding target of $15,000. That happened just one hour after launch, and at press time they were up to $157,680; so now the epidemiologist is on offer alongside Pelosi, each going for $20.
Designed by Seattle-based sculptor Mike Leavitt, both figures feature PPE. Here are some process shots of Dr. Fauci (Pelosi process shots were unavailable):
The Trump campaign was not doing as well as the FCTRY campaign at press time, with $3,607 in pledges on a $100,000 goal--but there were still 34 days left to pledge (it leads right up to Election Day). And as countless commentators have reminded us, and a lot can happen in a month.
