There’s a new action figure hitting shelves, and he doesn’t wear a cape or tights — his name is Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) MuellerAn unquestioning press promotes Rep.

The special counsel, who’s investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, is coming to life as a 6-inch tall figure from a company called FCTRY.
The $20 mini of the famously tight-lipped Mueller — which is available for pre-order beginning Tuesday — comes with an array of strictly nonclassified features.
His “meticulous hair,” according to the company's description, ensures he “stays on message always,” while his “perma-sealed lips won’t sink ships.” He’s posed with an open hand “ready for the smoking gun,” and “impermeable shoes in case of tweetstorms.” The designer says the 74-year-old Mueller's extended finger “pokes holes in flimsy alibis,” and he sports a fixed gaze “because he knows you know he knows.”
FCTRY CEO Jason Feinberg called Mueller the closest thing to an "anti-Trump."
“Mueller is literally the closest thing there is to an anti-Trump and he has come to symbolize all the virtues [President] Trump lacks — honor, dignity, integrity, ohh ... and silence,” Feinberg said in a statement. “We’re legitimately excited about the real-life [Mueller] and what he brings to the narrative of these times.”
The Mueller action figure, which will begin shipping in early summer, is hardly the first politically charged creation from the Brooklyn-based manufacturer. FCTRY raised more than $600,000 on Kickstarter to fund a "Notorious RBG" figure inspired by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg last year.

The current president was transformed into a middle finger-raising “Trump Over Re-Action Figure" in 2017.
That same year, FCTRY made headlines when it announced that it would donate all profits from its Trump figure to the American Civil Liberties Union.
