FCTRY's "Arch-Rivals" Real Life Action Figures Bundle
“The Joker needs a Batman” is the philosophy behind Brooklyn-based pop product design company FCTRY’s latest entry in its highly successful line of “Real Life Action Figures.”
For sure enough, a Robert Mueller figure was on display at last week’s winter NY NOW home/lifestyle/gift market trade show at New York’s Javits Center. It’s available June 1, same date as a Kamala Harris figure, out in time for the presidential primaires. Both stand six-inches tall and are based on pop artist/sculptor Mike Leavitt’s original artwork.
The new figures join FCTRY’s current Real Life Action Figures catalog of Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Barack Obama, Pope Francis, Donald Trump and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The Ginsburg figure has sold over 160,000 units over the last nine months.
“When she broke her ribs it almost crashed our site!” said director of wholesale accounts Tyler Breuer, adding, “We get more orders with every dissent.”
It should be noted that the outlier Trump figure shows a middle finger properly extended. It comes separately or newly packaged with Mueller’s in an “Arch-Rivals Bundle.”
