back to article Steve Jobs action figure set for shop shelves

The popularity of collectable figurines may have declined from the golden years of Star Wars statues and Hulk Hogan toys, but when it comes to Apple fanboys, replica models of the late Steve Jobs are sure to be a hot property. While Apple has been a stickler in the past over the production of such models, Chinese company InIcons …

Why are you holding the iPhone wrong? Don't you know it won't work if you do that.

It does have the "sharpshooter" neck for taking potshots at competitors.

Soon to be followed by..

The Kim Jong Il action figure.

Hardly uprising, as both deaths seem to cause widespread weeping in the streets by their respective followers.

Personally if I was forced to make a choice, I think I would rather join the communist party than buy Apple...

There goes a commandment then

"Do not make an image or any likeness of what is in the heavens above..."

Or are we working on the basis that he's in warmer climes?

Do Apple have a legal claim to Jobs' likeness?

Obviously the man himself could object to such figures when he was alive, but has that changed now he has died? Anyone know?

Now if only they could automate it we would at last see a Steve Jobs Android.

I suggest that ideally the final version should be bio powered by inserting a fruit in a suitable orafice

First in a new line of collectible action figures?

If it was to be a line of famous tech multi-millionaires, it might be a short range. Speaking for myself I couldn't identify Elon Musk if he was in part of an ID parade made up with the seven dwarfs.

Though how about a Gates vs Jobs double pack ...

That'll come with the iJobs Doll 2 in March.

Rumours are already circulating as to whether it will remain 3.5" or 4". It will also come with Siri where you can ask it "One last thing?" where iJobs Doll 2 will respond with a witty remark such as "Get out of my office, you're fired!", or even "Are you my daddy" where it will respond sourly with "I disown you!" or you can utter single words to it like "Boom!" or "Magical" to which it responds, "I'm suing you, Dave."

Whether it contains a spontaneous combustion cell activated when fury levels are piqued by whispering "Samsung" to the iJobs Doll 2's Siri client are yet to be confirmed by MacRumors or AppleInsider, but it will reportedly come with WiFi so that Apple can remotely control it to bellow "You're sleeping wrong, you nasty sub human iPOS, Buy a Mac!" at you as you vainly attempt to sleep should they get wind of you owning an Asus EeePad Transformer.

Finally, rumours that Jonny Ive has designed a Android-homing missile launch device have been strongly denied despite a stockpile of mini torpedoes being found in crates hidden in bushes at One Infinite Loop, Cupertino marked "Jonny was here, for iBigJobs Doll 3"

So sorry...

...but the Jobs doll WILL NOT have replacable batteries.

Once the doll no longer recharges, you will be expected to return it, along with a check or money order made payable to Apple Computers, in the amount of USD$69.99 for repalcement of the internal battery. If you would like a "loaner doll" whilst yours is in for repair, please include an additional USD$199.99 to cover the costs of shipping and handling. Please allow 12 weeks for the repair and return of your iDol(L).

Thank you.

Does it have a string which when pulled and released makes him say, "Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow"?

Or possibly it utters the famous last words as it bursts into flames once the warranty has run out unless you've paid for the extended AppleCarre cover.
