Special Counsel Robert Mueller gets his own action figure

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Special Counsel Robert Mueller gets his own action figure with the tagline, "Help us, Robert Mueller.

You're our only hope." Brooklyn product design company FCTRY created the 6-inch (15-cm) tall plastic version of the attorney.

"He's our anti-Trump.

We're viewing him as the Batman to Trump's Joker," said FCTRY Chief Executive Jason Feinberg.

"I think he gives that sense of there being, somewhere out there, there's a grownup in the room.

Like I get the sense that he is sort of keeping us safe.

He's the only hope, right?

He's the last hope.

So maybe it's that, maybe I want people to look up and just like, have a little ray of hope." Mueller was appointed in May 2017 to investigate the Russian interference and possible collusion with U.S. President Donald Trump's campaign.

It is unclear when the probe, which has clouded Trump's first two years in office, will end.

Feinberg started FCTRY as a side job in 2005.

But in 2008, Feinberg sculpted an action figure out of former U.S. President Barack Obama after being moved by one of his debates.

"When the Obama phenomenon hit in 2008, I was basically there on the market with the only Obama product because I had started it so early," he said.

"And like literally overnight it went from being a tiny side job to a million dollar company in one year." A prototype of the Robert Mueller action figure was created by Seattle fine artist Mike Leavitt, was mass produced in China, and is available for pre-orders on FCTRY's website.

The finished product takes about nine months to a year to complete.
