Look out, G.I. Joe: Edward Snowden gets own action figure

- The Washington Times - Wednesday, February 19, 2014

After G.I. Joe and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the world now has an Edward Snowden action figure. The infamous NSA leaker has been immortalized in plastic, courtesy of an Oregon-based company that makes the figures using facial reconstruction analysis.

"This package includes Edward Snowden's custom action figure head mounted on a 12-inch action figure body with a several choices of outfit styles," the Thatsmyface.com website boasts.

Customers can pay $99 for the full figurine or they can opt to pay $60 for the head only, which allows them to attach it to a 12-inch action figure already in their possession.

According to the website, all proceeds will be donated to the Freedom of the Press Foundation.

Mr. Snowden is currently residing in Russia after officials granted him temporary asylum. If Russia does not renew his protected status he may end up in Brazil; the country's citizens recently handed in a petition to the government with 1.1 million signatures in support of giving him asylum.
