BROOKLYN — It's a bird. It's a plane. It's Hillary Clinton.
The creators of a blue pantsuit-clad Hillary Clinton action hero are trying to drum up enough funds to mass-produce the figurine ahead of her possible run for the presidency and potential campaign headquarters in Brooklyn.
Jason Feinberg and Alyssa Zeller, founders of product design company FCTRY — and the pair behind the Mustachifier (a pacifier shaped like a mustache) — created the six-inch doll with sculptor Mike Leavitt from a 3D printer in Williamsburg.
"America's kinda ready for Hillary," Feinberg said. "And honestly the world kinda needs a Hillary action figure."
The team also created a Barack Obama action figure in 2008.
They vow to send a "Run, Hillary, Run" postcard to the former Secretary of State for each backer of the project — there are currently 462 backers who donated a total of $15,269 — at the end of the campaign.
A video from the Kickstarter quips, "She can solve any international crisis with a single joke. Strong enough to wrestle Russian bears, yet cool enough to diffuse any Korean missile. Smart, bold and stylish the world has never seen a woman quite like this" — and Feinberg said it is a mixed bag to create a "politically charged" action hero again after nearly eight years of making gnome crayons and gummy bear nightlights for kids.
"Some people think this is awesome and others are like 'I hate you,'" he said.
The Kickstarter goal of $15,000 has already been reached but if the company gets $60,000 they will also make a pink pantsuit-clad Clinton.
