(JTA) — Fans of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg can already buy a plethora of items with her face on it, including T-shirtsmugs and prayer candles. Soon they will be able to add another keepsake to their collections: an RBG action figure.

If the amount of money raised to produce the toys is any indication, they will be a success: People donated over $613,000 on a Kickstarter page dedicated to producing the figures, vastly exceeding a goal of $15,000.

The figures are being sold by Fctry, a Brooklyn-based product design company, and the first shipment will go out in October. The miniature version of the Jewish jurist costs $20 and sports her signature white collar, wire-rimmed glasses and hardwood gavel.

The company says Ginsburg, a progressive icon on the Supreme Court, is a fan of the project.

“I will just mention that Ruth Bader Ginsburg herself has one that we gave her. She said she would put it on her mantelpiece, so we’re really excited about that,” marketing coordinator Zoe Cronin told AM NewYork.

The organization is using part of the profits to do good, donating $1 for each Kickstarter donor to She’s The First, an organization that supports girls hoping to be the first in their family to graduate high school.

Fctry also sells action figures of other liberal political icons, including Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren. A Kamala Harris figure will soon be available as well.

Ginsburg recently celebrated her 25th anniversary on the court.
