Adrianne Palicki spoke recently about her involvement in films full of action & explosions (Red Dawn, GI JOE: Retaliation) and mentioned the Lady Jaye action figure, molded in her image



"The best part is that I’m an action figure," Palicki adds excitedly. "We went to Toy Fair, and there’s a little Mini-Me out there and it actually looks like me. It’s crazy. My friends are like, ‘It’s funny, most actors dream about getting an Oscar, and you really dream about getting your action figure. That’s when you know you’ve made it.’ "I’m like, ‘I know … because I have one!’"



GI JOE: Retaliation is finally due out in theatres March 29, 2013.

Here’s a relatively older pic:  Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who plays the character “Heavy Duty” in the movie “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra”, holds a 12-inch G.I. Joe action figure in his likeness as he signs autographs at Hasbro’s booth at the San Diego Comic-Con circa July 24, 2009.
And looking darn happy about it too.
