As we mentioned in this week’s podcast, a company called inicons.com has released a very realistic Steve Jobs action figure.
While we can only tantalize you with a few pictures, you can check out the whole story here.
UPDATE: On January 15, 2012, inicons.com withdrew the figure before its release, citing pressure from Apple and from Jobs family. From the company’s official announcement:
Unfortunately we have received immense pressure from the lawyers of Apple and Steve Jobs family. Regardless of the pressure, I am still Steve’s fan, I fully respect Steve, and his family, and it is definitely not my wish or intention that they be upset. Though we still believe that we have not overstepped any legal boundaries, we have decided to completely stop the offer, production and sale of the Steve Jobs figurine out of our heartfelt sensitivity to the feelings of the Jobs family.
We understand that this decision will cause many of the fans’ disappointment, but please forgive us as there is no other alternative unless to have the blessing from Steve Jobs family… We will aim to have full refund to the fans who have pre-ordered.
