The Edward Snowden action figure: glasses included.


Edward Snowden, the famed NSA whistle-blower, already has been cast as the hero in a video game that has him collecting sensitive information while avoiding government capture. Now, he can be the hero of more tactile game play with his arrival in the form of an action figure from

The action figure goes for $99 and comes with a 12-inch articulated body (movable joints) in your choice of clothes. Options include a brown military outfit, a casual set with jeans and a t-shirt, a business suit, or an Indiana Jones get-up complete with a whip and messenger bag. For obvious reasons, you should order the Indiana Jones version if you're going to buy this thing.

If you have a 12-inch, headless action figure laying around, then you can order just the interchangeable head for $60. The made-to-order head is crafted from resin.

The Edward Snowden action figure joins a list of unlikely toy heroes, including Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs. The best part probably comes when you start to mix your Snowden figure in with your "Star Wars" toys. Snowden could then be involved with exposing Darth Vader's top-secret spying efforts on board the Death Star, which would be totally amazing.
