A miniature version of BT Counterpane security guru Bruce Schneier -- complete with beard and ponytail -- is now available from the That's My Face site.
The site has dubbed Schneier's figure "Cryptoman," and is offering him in "casual" or "smart" outfits. Buyers can save $29 by purchasing the head only.
Schneier knows about the action figure and has blogged about it:
"I'd like to be able to say something like 'half the proceeds are going to EPIC and EFF,'" Schneier blogs, "but they're not. That's the price for custom orders. I don't even get a royalty. The company is working on lowering the price...I've told them that at $100 no one will buy it, but at $40 it's a funny gift for your corporate IT person. So email the company if you're interested, and if they get enough interest they'll do a bulk order."
We want one, Santa. Please?
