A Kickstarter campaign to make an action figure of Sen. Elizabeth Warren soared past its $15,000 goal within hours.

The Brooklyn-based design company FCTRY will soon release a toy for political junkies who want to “bring the fight to the Right.”

CEO Jason Feinberg, whose products also include Hillary Clinton, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, and “Evil Trump,” will add Ms. Warren of Massachusetts to the list, thanks to over 800 private backers.

“We could only handle sitting around feeling sad for ourselves for so long,” Mr. Feinberg’s Kickstarter page says. “In fact, we went through all seven stages of Trump Grief before making this toy and now we’re just plain fired up and optimistic about what lies ahead.”

The businessman told the Boston Globe Monday that his newest figure’s stance might be described as “defiant hero mode.”

“We’re really focusing on what she’s been focusing on,” Mr. Feinberg said. “On the concept of fighting. Fight back. She’s a very positive fighter.”

FCTRY’s newest toy also comes with the Democrat’s “righteous fist,” “power blazer” and “rolled up sleeves.”

The company’s campaign attracted over 850 backers and $25,500 in pledges in one day.
