Steve Jobs Action Figure Scrapped

Rabid Steve Jobs fans who already placed their orders will be sorely disappointed. A $100 action figure immortalizing the late Apple cofounder has been pulled from the market, after its Chinese manufacturers received “immense pressure” from Apple’s lawyers and Jobs’s family not to sell the lifelike doll, according to a statement released by its creators. “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,” In Icons said on its website. The company had planned to start shipping the action figure—which came with a black turtleneck, blue jeans, and two apples—in February and was already running out of stock due to preorders.
