A company called FCTRY recently launched a Kickstarter page for its 6-inch, lab coat-sporting version of the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, one of the most prominent members of the Trump administration’s coronavirus task force.

The product design studio has been behind a number of politically themed figures over the years, including mini-mes of Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy PelosiOn The Money: Weekly jobless claims fall to 498K, hitting new post-lockdown low | House to advance appropriations bills in June, July Rural Democrats urge protections from tax increases for family farms Cheney fight stokes cries of GOP double standard for women MORE (D-Calif.), former special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) MuellerWhy a special counsel is guaranteed if Biden chooses Yates, Cuomo or Jones as AG Barr taps attorney investigating Russia probe origins as special counsel CNN's Toobin warns McCabe is in 'perilous condition' with emboldened Trump MORE, former President Obama, a middle finger-raising "Trump Over Re-Action Figure" and Sen.

The $20 Fauci figure comes equipped with a number of COVID-19 fighting features.

"With his removable mask, perfectly fitted glasses, coifed hair, never wrinkled lab coat and undeniable Brooklyn swagger, the Dr. Fauci action figure is a spitting image of his real life counterpart (sans hand sanitizer)," FCTRY said in a statement announcing the figure's release. 

The toymaker says Fauci "won't crack under pressure" because he's crafted with acrylic-based plastic. The Fauci model is being sold alongside the company's latest Pelosi figure, and FCTRY says it's donating $1 to the League of Women Voters for every figurine of the lawmaker it sells. 

“While Dr. Fauci may go down in history books as a key figure during a very trying time, in reality, it's all medical personnel and essential workers that deserve the superhero treatment.” FCTRY co-founder Jason Feinberg said in a statement.

But Fauci fans will likely have to wait to get their hands on the good doctor — orders aren't expected to ship until February 2021.
