Default Gina Carano Doll Coming Soon

Gina Carano will get her own collectible figurine with collectible MMA figurine company Round 5. Her figurine is tentatively scheduled to be released in summer 2009 as part of the Series 4 collection.
"I'm incredibly blessed to be a part of so many wonderful opportunities and to now be included in Round 5's line up of gifted fighters is another exciting privilege,"Carano said. "When I was a little girl my dad always joked about making a 'Gina doll' and I smile when I think it has become a reality. It is both humbling and invigorating to consider this is just the beginning with so many other gifted women whose figurines are yet to be made."

Fedor is also slated to be coming out along with Carano too.

Here's the official announcement from Round 5:

Quote:

A FIGURE WITH “CONVICTION”: CARANO TEAMS WITH ROUND 5 TO CREATE COLLECTIBLE
Face of Female MMA Latest Star To Develop Figurine
MARKHAM, Ontario, Canada, February 24, 2009 – Known to many as the “face of female mixed martial arts,” Gina “Conviction” Carano has parlayed great ability in the cage and a glamorous look out of it to burst onto the MMA scene and in many ways transcended the sport. Now, the unbeaten star has announced she will be working with Round 5, the leader in collectible MMA figurines, to produce a figure that reflects her stardom. Carano joins an All‐Star lineup of 13 MMA standouts who currently work with Round 5.
Carano, 26, gained notice for her success in the cage and has earned additional attention with appearances as “Crush“ on the NBC television series “American Gladiators“ and by serving as a mentor/coach on the Oxygen network series “Fight Girls.“ She is also in many ways a pioneer in womenʹs MMA, competing in the first‐ever sanctioned bout in Nevada in September 2006 and in the first female bout (boxing or MMA) on the Showtime Network in February 2007. She currently owns a 7‐0 record in MMA competition.
“Gina Carano has emerged as a star, not just in MMA but in the mainstream,” said Damon Lau, Round 5 President. “As the first female in the Round 5 line, we expect her figurine to be popular among the sportʹs enthusiasts as well as those who have seen her on TV or in magazines.”
“Iʹm incredibly blessed to be a part of so many wonderful opportunities and to now be included in Round 5ʹs line up of gifted fighters is another exciting privilege,” said Carano. “When I was a little girl my dad always joked about making a ‘Gina doll’ and I smile when I think it has become a reality. It is both humbling and invigorating to consider this is just the beginning with so many other gifted women whose figurines are yet to be made.”
The Carano figurine is tentatively scheduled to be released as part of Series 4, which is planned for a summer 2009 release. As in the earlier Series, Carano will maintain creative control of her likeness, including the pose, facial design and shorts. She will have a major hand in creating the final design and will benefit from a royalty agreement that gives her a considerable portion of the proceeds from the sale of her unit.
Round 5 has announced partnerships with 13 mixed martial arts stars to date, with eight figurines already available: Randy Couture, Matt Hughes, Quinton ‘Rampageʹ Jackson and Tito Ortiz (Series 1); and Rich Franklin, Sean Sherk, Anderson Silva and Wanderlei Silva (Series 2). Series 3 figurines are scheduled to be available in April, featuring Andrei “The Pit Bull” Arlovski, “Big John” McCarthy, Frank Mir and Antonio Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira. International superstar Fedor Emelianenko has also signed on and will be in a future Series in 2009.

The doll should be life sized and anatomically correct. They'd make a LOT more money on it.

Yeah, but something's off; seems like something's missing...I can't quite put my finger on it...
