Steve Jobs Action Figure Hits the Market

An eerily realistic action figure of the late Apple co-founder will reportedly go on sale in February.

Just what the world needs. Another Steve Jobs action figure. This latest 12-inch Steve doll from In Icons, a Chinese company, looks creepily lifelike, and on the website the company writes that the collectible is "dedicated to the genius, great inventor, and visionary: Steve Jobs."

The figure, (seen in this CNN video) which sells for $99 and goes onsale in the U.S. in February, comes with a realistic head sculpt, two pairs of glasses, one articulated body, three pairs of hands (huh?), a black turtleneck (Jobs had a closetful of Japanese designer Issey Miyake's turtlenecks made for him), a pair of jeans, a black leather belt, and a pair of black socks and sneakers. Extras like the tiny iPad, iPhone 4 and the first model of Mac will cost you a bit more. To order your very own Steve Jobs, click here.

The big question is will Apple's lawyers let this doll hit the market? Dolls are supposed to ship next month. But Apple also killed a previous Jobs figure created by another Chinese company, M.I.C. Gadget. Their detailed $79 bobblehead was Jobs in jeans, a black turtleneck, and sneakers holding an iPhone 4. Apple told M.I.C. Gadget that the action figure was a violation of its copyrights and trademarks.

Bet In Icons will get the same message. If they haven't already.
