NEW YORK (CBS)
Anna Chapman, the redheaded Russian spy whose photographs made her a tabloid favorite, is now a plastic action figure.

Doll manufacturer Herobuilders.com has created two Barbie-like action figures of the femme fatale and is selling them online for $29.95.

Sorry, folks, no Malibu beach house included.

The website features other action figures based on public figures: President Obama, Sarah Palin, and others.

Chapman was required to leave the country along with nine other Russian spies immediately after they pleaded guilty to working as unregistered agents for Russia while living seemingly quiet lives in America.

After her arrest, the 28-year-old quickly became the most visible member of the spy ring when photographs gleaned from the Internet showed the smiling Russian enjoying Manhattan's nightlife, posing in front of the Statue of Liberty and mixing with businessmen at a conference. Later, several pictures showing her naked were published.

Chapman's plea agreement with federal prosecutors includes a clause forbidding her from making money from the sale of her story in book or movie form.

However, according to her lawyer, there was no prohibition from her making money based on her celebrity status.

I wonder if that's true for plastic dolls?
