Random Collectibles: 12″ Steve Jobs Action Figure Doll

[UPDATE] I may have found a new toy to sit on my work desk to let people know that I’ll never officially grow up in the 12″ Steve Jobs action figure doll.  I append the word doll to this collectible, because any toy that is 12″ or larger is a damn doll!  Any collector knows that action figures are no larger than 4″, so I have to classify this yet to be release Steve Jobs tribute toy as a doll.  No worries though, I’m man enough to play with dolls of other grown men, wait, WTF, that doesn’t sound right.  I mean I’ve got no problem having a doll of one of the most brilliant salesman of all-time sitting on my work desk.

Thanks for the advice Steve Jobs doll! 

Little Steve will make for a great conversation piece, so I hope the Jobs family doesn’t block in icons and Dragon in Dream’s attempt to get this guy to the rabid Apple fanboy masses.  They have blocked an attempt to make a Jobs action figure before, but that was while the Wizard of Cupertino was still alive.  If this doll does make it to market expect it to run around $100.  I’ve been trying to get more details on the in icons website about where or how to purchase this finely crafted Jobs doll, but their site is running slower than a snail sh*ts, so I’ll have to try back later.  Here’s the link to the product page just in case you get a better connection to their site.  Yes I will buy one of these, so don’t even hate.  You’ve been needing a Steve Jobs doll because it’ll probably just work…

[UPDATE] Well it didn’t take the Apple Lawsuit machine long to issues a cease and desist for this action figure.  Since the posting Apple has taken legal action against In Icons.  For now the toy company is moving forward with the February release, but I wouldn’t hold my breath if you pre-ordered one.  Apple Legal > In Icons Legal.
