Yeah....I know I'm gonna draw a lot of heat for that statement but let me explain....
#1) No gimmick weapons.
Thank god...this entire line is loaded down with way too many gimmick weapons...which are better than the ROC gimmick weapons for sure, but still...how many oversized rappelling gear things do we need?
#2) Lots of gear.
4....FOUR extra guns, a bazooka, the javeline, two back packs 3 blades and none of them Ninja swords.
#3) Good re-use of the Renegades Scarlett body.
Yes...I will agree it not the best likeness of the actress, but its FAR better than the god awful sculpt we got of Covergirl from ROC...or even the Renegades Scarlett head...it may not look like Adrianna...but its not that bad.
Now some will complain the re-use of the Scarlett Renegades body doesn't come close to the look even in the film...but honestly its not even close to the ARAH look for Jaye either so she at least can stands alone as a new character if you like.
In all I think LJ is one of the better Retaliation figures so far and just had to talk about it.

The headsculpt is pretty much the only flaw IMO... although the lone one I saw may have just had bad paint apps that made it looks worse than it really is.
They should have given her an alternate helmet headsculpt and turned her into a generic female Joe troop builder.

The face looks really, really cartoony, but that's my only real flaw with it. I wasn't even a big fan of Renegades Scarlette, but I like the figure in these colors a lot better.
And you're right; she comes with a freaking ton of weapons. The generic Joe Trooper was being heralded for his weapons, but Jaye's are soooo much better. I also really like that some of her guns have lots of paint apps too.
Very solid figure. I might pick up a couple more.
....If I can find any more. :(

Yeah, gotta agree with you on this one. This figure rocks! I thought the fact that she had an actual back pack "with straps" was pretty cool as well.

After repeated statements of "female figures don't sell well at retail" I was not expecting a Lady Jaye figure in any way, shape or form.
So i'm thankful we got one at all. I did not think i was going to like the reuse of the Scarlett body, but i do. The camo and color choices are so effective that even standing right next to each other, they don't really look too similar.
As for the head sculpt, i really don't care too much about actor likeness, as long as it looks okay in general. So it works for me, and if you give it a layer of paint, it softens the features and brings it much closer to Palicki's look.
So my verdict:

With all of the weapons she comes with, I'm tempted to troop build her using the alternate head that the wave 4 Duke will have. The one I have is pretty good with regards to the paint apps on the face. Overall, she's one of my favorite movie figures.

When I looked at this fig the first time I thought it was ugly as hell and totally uninspired. I guess I'll have to give LJ a second look if I find her again.

She's a great fig. I don't consider her LJ. I've come up with a new ID for her.

Agreed fantastic weapons and really cool camo. Pretty bad paint apps on the face. My other problem the others didn't get the same camo and sweet painted guns. I would have loved to get the rock, mouse, a fully articulated flint and duke to go along with lady j. I would have also liked to have a lady j in the red dress, zartan as potus, and secret service guys.
