OMG. Of all the trade shows making their way back after a million billion years of Covid, no return to the land-of-the-living has thrilled me more than that of Five Points Festival — the Mother of All Toy Shows — because Five Points just plain rules! If you failed to make that scene, here’s just a smidgeon of what you missed. Losers.

The folks at FCTRY, who’ve been turning cultural and political icons into action figures since 2008, are adding a gorgeous Nancy Pelosi Acton Figure to their already impressive line of progressive heroes that includes RBG, Biden, AOC, Sanders and Hillary (which I own) among many others. Nancy is seen here rocking a hot Pink Dress (earning her the honor of being a Pink Thing of The Day), accessorized with sensible white pumps, while she carries a white gavel in one hand, and Dump’s hideous wig in another (though I believe that is just a photo prop)! Nancy’s incredible likeness was sculpted by Seattle-based artist Michael Leavitt, whose work you have seen on the blog many times. He is so talented! While FCTRY prepares Nancy’s Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for her series, you can help spread the word about this project and possibly earn a free action figure. To find out how to get a free Nancy Pelosi Action Figure, please click Here, then scroll down to the Quid Pro Quo section. Can’t wait to own this lovely and powerful lady!
Update 9/11/20: The Campaign in now Live on Kickstarter at This Link!
Update April 7th, 2021:
Nancy arrived yesterday and here she is now; quite literally ‘In The House!’

Featuring four of the central members from the 1980s; Terminator X, Chuck D, Flavor Flav and Professor Griff, imagine the fun urban adventures you could have with these guys! The highly-detailed figures were designed by comic book artist Ed Piskor, who wrote and illustrated Hip Hop Family Tree, a series of educational and historical comics which document the early history of hip hop culture.
