While a Bernie figure wasn’t initially on the cards for FCTRY (since the company had already pledged support for Hillary), soon it became obvious that a bit of love needed to be given to her Democratic opponent.
‘The night of the Iowa caucuses, we got together our little creative team and held a mini-caucus’, it said on Kickstarter. ‘The question on the table – “Do we make a Bernie Action Figure too?”‘
‘On the one hand, it feels like cheating. We did kind of promise our loyalty to Hillary last year and we’ve even been sending dollars to her campaign.

The Kickstarter campaign for the Bernie Sanders figure only began on February 24 and was fully funded within a day! Now there’s a little more than a month to grab your own Bernie action figure, so check out the project here to get your own.
