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 …
I can imagine the response.
"No problem. Just buy an iJobs Doll Mini next time. Actually looking at your size, better wait for the Nano we have coming next year..."
There aren't enough upvotes in the world.
I don't want to live on this planet any more
...including big brass balls...?
'Cause, bless the man, he HAD 'em!
£64?!? You're kidding!
And that's only for the 8GB version... £128 for the 16GB
That's not a phone it's holding, it's smelling salts. There'll be a $399.99 activation fee and the battery will cost $199.99 for Apple to replace. That procedure requires a miniature colonoscopy probe which Apples is not selling. The Sacred J having a proprietary azzwhole means Apple can corner that market.
It's expected that many fanbois will forgo purchasing immediately after introduction. Rumor has it Apple will soon post for download bodily function sounds on their soon-to-be-announced iFart site.
Just the start
Maybe we can get a Steve Ballmer Mr. Blobby Doll, an audioanimatronic Micheal Dell, and one of the Google founders, now with Invisible Useless Google+ Attachment!
There already is a Mr Blobby doll
It's called Noel Edmonds aka. Big Blouse of Fail.
Oh for fucks sake!!!!!!!!
That is all.
Nobody spotted the yet to be announced iWrists?
Are they doing a Sir Clive Sinclair model? Complete with "real" comb over hair, and optional C5?
...in hong kong. was there last week, saw a few stores in some mall selling these (or at least, some kind of Jobs action figure; I was laughing too hard to inspect them very closely).
... is so far beyond ridiculous that I'm hoping that I've lost three months, and it is actually April 1st.
I ma horrified that anyone thought this would be a good idea, and I think I have become a Malthusian as a result.
@ Intractable Potsherd
Malthusian? Lucky I've got a dictionary! Anyway (don't worry too much man) it 21st Century - I think it's maybe called 'social engineering' nowadays?
A dictionary???!!! You mean you haven't got an app for that?
Can you get alternative costumes, Hawaiian shirts, party dresses, blue suits, software t-shirts, etc?
$30 for tiny iPhone 5 when it's released. Wouldn't want your iDol holdin gout of date technology, right?
Does anyone know where to get a similarly sized cage, google t-shirt and android phone?
Damn you flatscreen monitors! I miss all the crazy junk on top of my screen!
How long before the blow up model...
for the real fanbois
yet another thing to put on my disown and try to slowly poison anyone who buys this list.
Voice of the living dead...
Or as was commonly popularized:
Looks like Salman Rushdie to me.
But it's been a while.
Look! A 12-inch *ick.
Consumer testing needed
How does it do on the blender test?
Does it come with a removable Pancreas?
So much disrespect for the recently departed.
And soon to be sanctified.
It gives me a real feeling of hope for the world.
I dread to think what the equivalent Mark Hurd doll would be like
But only if I can have the Ninja Steve version. Might be a problem getting it through customs though..
