Apple Threatens Chinese Toy Manufacturer With Legal Action Over Steve Jobs Action Figure

Apple Threatens Chinese Toy Manufacturer With Legal Action Over Steve Jobs Action Figure

I’d have put my house and children on Apple suing the Chinese toy manufacturer which produces the incredibly realistic Steve Jobs action figure we reported on earlier this week. And just as expected, it’s threatening to do just that.

In Icon has reportedly received a letter from Apple’s legal team which states it must stop producing and selling the 12-inch $99 figure — which sports Steve’s iconic black turtleneck, blue jeans and white sneakers — immediately, or face legal action. Unfortunately for In Icon, it has no intention of quitting.

Check Out This Insanely Realistic & Poseable Steve Jobs Action Figure, On Sale Now [Gallery]

Apple has not been known to look kindly upon toys made in the likeness of the company’s iconic, recently deceased founder, Steve Jobs.

Any guesses, then, as to how long it’ll take for them to pile on DiD Corp for this eerily accurate action figure of Steve? The 30 centimeter statue is available now for preorder at just $99.99 and will supposedly ship out in February, but if Apple hasn’t sent a strongly worded letter (and, failing that, some pipe-wielding muscle) to DiD Corp by then, preventing the sale of the device, well, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle.

Holy Drone Attack, Batman! Griffin Unveils New iPhone-Controlled Chopper

Somewhere, as Wagner’s Flight of the Valkyries is playing n the background, squadrons of Parrot AR Drones face off against Griffin’s new Helo TC somewhere over the Atlantic (since Parrot is based in France and Griffin in Tennessee, I figured that’s where they’d probably meet up).

Apple Asks Makers Of Horrifying Steve Jobs Bobblehead To Quit It

Apple Asks Makers Of Horrifying Steve Jobs Bobblehead To Quit It

This bobble-headed Steve Jobs statuette is both horrifyingly creepy and yet undeniably compelling, but unfortunately, its makers has already been asked by Apple’s legal team to lay off… not because it makes portrays Steve like some sort of murderous, hydrocephalic homunculus, but because they didn’t get permission to use the Apple logo or the likeness of iPhone in Steve’s hands.

Probably for the best: I’d almost definitely get one, put it on a shelf somewhere, then inevitably start fantasizing about it creeping into the bedroom with sewing needles in its hands during some midnight’s delirium tremens.

Give the Dog an iBone

Give the Dog an iBone

The trouble with iBone, a plush squeaky toy for dogs modeled on the iPhone, just slightly larger than the real thing, is that it’s unlikely to discourage Fido from playing around with your iPhone, should it get within paw reach.
