WASHINGTON - Super-tan Patricia Krentcil's moment in "the spotlight" (ahem) isn't quite over.

The UV-drenched New Jersey mother who caught the ire of the nation after allegedly bringing her daughter into a tanning booth will now be immortalized through a new action figure.

Connecticut-based toy company Hero Builders made and sells the doll on their website, marketing the toy as perfect for "tanorexic" friends. It costs $29.95.

"She's a hot mess," one passer-by told CNN of the new figure.

Other celebrity dolls available on the site include White House gate crasher Michaele Salahi, and a "real housewife" of New Jersey.
