Japanese Toy Maker Unveils Remarkably Detailed Steve Jobs Figure, But It Won’t Stick Around



Japanese toy manufacturer Legend Toys has unveiled a remarkably detailed Steve Jobs figure to commemorate the first anniversary of his death. Sculpted by Takao Kato, it’s called the ‘Steve mini’, and it comes bundled with a number of props, such as a chair and a tiny iPad. It’ll begin shipping at the end of December — but there’s a good chance Apple will stop it soon.

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:

Big Grins from Griffin’s New Crayola iPad Toy [CES 2011]



LAS VEGAS, CES 2011 — Griffin Technology‘s new Crayola ColorStudio HD ($30) evoked so many bubbly noises while it was being demo’ed you’d think CES had become a popular  3rd-grade field trip destination. And if the fun little gadgapp (yeah, I know, see below) can make a bunch of jaded tech journos grin, you know it’s going to be a huge hit with the kids.

The app works with what’s essentially a jumbo stylus that paints color on the screen in a selected color. Parts of the page are animated, and those animated pieces can be colored in without the color bleeding over the lines. Finished pages can be emailed, uploaded to Facebook or printed.

Oh, about the “gadgapp” thing: So, this year’s CES seems indeed to be the year of the app-enhanced accessory; problem is — as my lamentably lame attempt demonstrates — we can’t seem to come up with a not-dorky term to concisely encapsulate this rapidly emerging new category of gadget. But we think our readers are sharp bunch, and we’re certain one of you can come up with something better. We”ll be announcing some sort of competition with prizes next week, be on the lookout.
