New Jimmy Wales action figure to promote Wikipedia donations
Doll maker ThatsMyFace announced it has created the Jimmy Wales, Wikipedia co-founder, action figure. Part of the proceeds of the sales of Jimmy's action figure will go be donated to the Wikimedia foundation.
ThatsMyFace, based in Portland, announced it has started selling the Jimmy Wales action figure.
Officials with ThatsMyFace stated the doll was created to promote donations to the Wikimedia foundation which is currently seeking funds to continue maintaining the wildly popular Wikipedia website. Wikipedia is a non-profit that does not display ads but still needs to maintain 400 servers and employ 100 staff worldwide. To this end, the doll features hypnotic beady-eyes which give it its Mega Donation Drive superpowers.
The action figure alone costs $99 and is a fully-articulated 12-inch figure. Customers can upgrade to variety of optional outfits. Part of the proceeds of the sales of Jimmy's action figure will be donated to the Wikimedia foundation.
For more information, check out the ThatsMyFace.com website where customers can also purchase realistic custom-made action figures of themselves from just a single photo. Free previews are available.
