Move over, James Kirk and Luke Skywalker -- there's a new action figure 
popping up on top of security professionals' computers -- and this one 
is a real guy.

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?
