(SOUNDBITE) (English) MAN'S VOICE, SAYING: "Hillary Clinton, the action figure". This kickstarter video helped Alyssa and Jason Feinberg of Brooklyn raise $15,000 (USD) which will let them start production on a Hillary Clinton action figure - a show of support for their preferred presidential candidate. (SOUNDBITE) (English) JASON FEINBERG, FOUNDER OF FCTRY, SAYING: "In researching an action figure I have to go and learn about the person we're going to make. And in this case, the more I read up on Hillary, the more I watched video footage of her, the more I sort of learned her life story, the more I came to realize that she was just the most amazing female role model ever." (SOUNDBITE) (English) ALYSSA ZELLER FEINBERG, CREATIVE DIRECTOR OF FCTRY, SAYING: "I, in particular, I love the smile. I love the details of the buttons on the jacket. Overall, I'm really pleased that it looks so much like Hillary. It's really hard to capture that." At first, the couple plans to roll out 15,000 action figures some time in May. It's still anyone's guess whether the real Hillary will make a presidential run official by then.
