Want to carry Steve Jobs around in your pocket? There’s an action figure for that. A 12-inch figurine of the co-founder of Apple is being promoted by the company In Icons for $99.99–beard, spectacles, mock black turtleneck, jeans and New Balance sneakers included. (The price doesn’t include shipping.) The unauthorized action figure, which some have called creepy due to its lifelike details, goes on sale next month. But will the toy that people are able to purchase look anything like the ultra-realistic figurine depicted on the company’s website? The small print on the bottom of the In Icon website reads “Prototype shown, final product appearance and colors may vary.” In 2010, another company reportedly sold Jobs action figures and was asked by a law firm representing Apple to stop selling and marketing the toys. A representative for In Icons didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment about its product. What do you think of the toy? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
