This New Steve Jobs Action Figure Looks Freakishly Realistic

Every time a company makes a Steve Jobs doll action figure Apple rains down a savage legal attack on their heads and gets the company to stop production immediately. So if you’re really dying for a Steve Jobs action figure, you better hurry and buy this one, because not only is it a Steve Jobs action figure, it’s a freakishly crazy realistic Steve Jobs action figure.

Legendary Toys went made sure everything about this Steve Jobs miniature doll look great. Its skin has great texture. The jeans are perfect. Hell they even tried to sculpt its derrière to be just like Steve’s – which, I guess is important too, right? The only thing they messed up were the hands, but not everyone can achieve perfection.

Check out the pictures below to see the doll close up:

    I love Apple products as much as the next guy but this is just ridiculous.

    It’s one thing to appreciate Steve Jobs as a pioneer and visionary; it’s another thing entirely to worship the ground that he walked on and put idols of “Him” around the house like he was to be worshipped, literally.

    Let’s just put things in perspective.

    George Lucas just announced that he will be donating most of the proceeds from his sale of Lucasfilm to Disney to his education charity.

    That estimated US$4 billion will go a long way toward educating our children.

    Compare Lucas to Jobs who also sold a company to Disney for billions of dollars (interestingly enough, that company Pixar was founded by Lucas as well and sold by him to Jobs).

    While Lucas will give the vast majority of the proceeds of his Disney deal to charity, Jobs gave ZERO to charity, absolutely NADA.

    There is NO public record of Jobs giving to charity EVER!

    Apple kool-aid drinkers claim that Jobs could have given anonymously.

    Typical Apple apologist spin (like how the child slave laborers in Apple’s China factories are getting compensated so much better than at other Chinese factories) and also typically UNTRUE.

    Job’s biographer, Walter Isaacson, asked him SPECIFICALLY point-blank about his charitable contributions and Jobs admitted he had none because he didn’t BELIEVE in charity!

    He said he believed his contributions with Apple products would help the world more than giving money would.

    From the co-founder and former head of Apple this type of blissful head-in-the-clouds ignorance isn’t surprising.

    What Jobs failed to realize, however, is that starving children in Africa who don’t even have access to clean water isn’t going to be benefitting from Apple products.

    Getting online easier, surfing the Web faster, downloading music simpler, and posting your photos to Facebook quicker isn’t helping the 50% of the world’s population living in poverty (i.e. the 3+ billion people in the world living on less than US$2.50 per day).

    And perhaps the most glaring miscalculation of Jobs’ sentiment is the fact that Apple products are for PURCHASE. He’s not giving them away or selling them at cost or at any level that could be considered “affordable” for the average person.

    Quite the contrary, Apple products are LUXURY goods that are WAY overpriced compared to similar products on the market.

    So no, selling sleek, overpriced electronic devices for entertainment purposes is NOT considered charity just as being the chef of a 3-star Michelin restaurant isn’t considered charity (no matter how good the food is) nor is being the best basketball player in the world considered charity nor is being in the Beatles considered charity.

    For charity isn’t about bringing joy to people’s lives (though there is of course REAL value to that and which is why the examples mentioned above all get rewarded extremely handsomely), but rather helping those in NEED.

    That is the difference and the crux of what Jobs FAILED to understand. “Helping” those that could afford his products to attain great pleasure and making him extremely wealthy in return isn’t being charitable at all, not when those being “helped” are paying exorbitantly for the privilege and not when Jobs personally profited so grotesquely from his “gifts and contributions” to the world.

    Just like Lucas wasn’t being “charitable” for creating “Star Wars” despite the immense joy that he’s giving to hundreds of millions if not billions of people (and far more pleasure to more people than all of Apple’s products combined), Steve Jobs wasn’t “charitable” for popularizing the MP3 player.

    No, Lucus is charitable for an altogether different reason. He’s charitable because he’s giving away BILLIONS of dollars in REAL CASH MONEY for those in NEED, not selling expensive toys to those in WANT.

    buckustoothnail, what is your charitable contribution? You seem so quick to point the finger, but what are you doing to help? It’s pretty easy to tell other people what to do with their money. Also, are all charitable contributions made public?

    OK I do agree with you on some things like having Steve Job dolls around the house. I don’t have one and I am certainly not going to spend any money on these dolls. Silly in my opinion. That does not mean I don’t like or respect Steve Jobs. I do. I am a big fan of the man, his company, his products and his tastes.

    The rest of your post – I think is nonsense.

    I still prefer the iCEO plush toy from Throwboy ;)

  • stooge

    Looks like a SCAM. Something VERY SIMILAR came out about a year ago and was shut down due to legal action. Only problem was that they collected lots of pre order money, held it, collected interest then refunded customers. I highly doubt that this toy even exists.

    why! at least Throwboys iceo is fun

    Apple kool-aid drinkers claim that Jobs could have given anonymously.

    John Markoff of the New York Times reported on NPR that Steve Jobs donated a large amount of money to Amnesty International.

    What I’ve learned from you is that if I’m rich and famous, I should brag about my donations to everyone that will listen because if I donate privately I’ll be considered an asshole.

    WRONG! 

    “Steve Jobs was a large anonymous donor to Amnesty International, according to John Maroff of the New York Times” is a MYTH that has been debunked ad nauseum. 

    This “claim” is a HOAX started on various comment sections and forums related to Apple topics and is NOT REFERENCED to any credible corroborating source whatsoever.

    The reason why this debunked hoax even perpetuates is because uninformed and ignorant posters like yourself who are so desperate to convince themselves that Steve Jobs was a kind, caring person that gave selflessly to charity, will without fail, Google the topic and find the only mentions linking Jobs with charity being this made-up story repeated in the comment sections of various Apple articles.  

    And thus in desperation to “prove” Jobs gave to charity, this myth gets propagated again in another ignorant post in another comments section of another Apple article such as this one.

    The true irony of the idea that Jobs supported and donated large sums of money to Amnesty International is the fact that Amnesty International had been a very loud and vocal CRITIC of Apple’s business practices when Jobs was still alive.

    Among their many accusations against Apple is the claim that Apple procured conflict materials for their components, trading with less-than-scrupulous mining companies that perpetuated the conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DMC).  

    You can read their report here:  blog.amnestyusa.org/business/exploitation-in-the-drc-fuels-mining-trade-apple-dell-look-the-other-way

    No doubt the author of the original hoax claiming Jobs was a large anonymous donor to Amnesty International was deliberately being facetious, being fully aware of AI’s harsh and unrelenting criticism of Apple, as well as Jobs’ well-known penchant for never giving to charity.
