Ruth Bader Ginsburg action figures will ship this fall

Fans of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg can already buy a plethora of items with her face on it, including T-shirts, mugs and prayer candles. Soon they will be able to add another keepsake to their collections: an RBG action figure.

If the amount of money raised to produce the toys is any indication, they will be a success: Donations passed the $613,000 mark on a Kickstarter page dedicated to producing the figures, vastly exceeding the goal of $15,000.

Fctry, a Brooklyn-based product design company, is selling the figures; the first shipment will go out in October. The miniature version of the Jewish jurist costs $20 and sports her signature white collar, wire-rimmed glasses and hardwood gavel.

Fctry is donating $1 for each Kickstarter donor to She’s The First, an organization that supports girls hoping to be the first in their family to graduate from high school.

3. Love it! Here in Seattle they made an action figure of super librarian Nancy Pearl, who encouraged

community through reading and discussion sessions. It has been very popular here.

Sounds like a great cause as well.
