FCTRY, 'n produkontwerpmaatskappy in Brooklyn, New York, sal die aksiefigure maak.
Dit het twee weke gelede 'n Kickstarter-veldtog van stapel gestuur om produksie te finansier, volgens Reuters.
Binne net drie uur, the campaign hit its $ 30,000 funding goal, Reuters berig.
As of Friday morning, it has raised $ 139,931 met 3,646 backers. The campaign ends Friday night.
For every Zelenskyy action figure sold, FCTRY will give $ 1 in aid to Ukrainian refugees, according to a Facebook post.
The prototype for the action figure was designed and molded in clay by Mike Leavitt, a Seattle-based artist.
Reuters reported that the plastic toy action figures will be mass-produced in China.
“The way we framed him in the campaign is ‘the unlikely hero,'” Jason Feinberg, FCTRY’s chief executive and creative director, told Reuters.
“He’s the perfect leader for this moment, just this super inspirational character,” Feinberg added.
“He has this real strength that comes across, but it’s humble and he sort of represents the opposite of everything that we’ve come to associate with politics.”
FCTRY introduced the Zelenskyy action figure and the Kickstarter campaign in a Facebook post on July 27.
“We don’t need more superheroes,” the Facebook post said.
“Just give us a few more real people with big hearts who are willing to face impossible odds.”
