Steve Jobs, who passed away on October 11, 2011, will still be with Apple fans in the form of a $99.99 doll. It’s half the cost of an iPod, and 1/6th scale, sized at twelve inches tall. Obviously it’s not as good as having the real man still alive, but fans seem to be interested in the collector’s item.
The doll looks just like the man who was famous for being the co-founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of Apple Inc. It wears a black turtleneck, jeans, a belt, New Balance shoes, and glasses and can be seen holding tiny Apple products like the iPad in promotional photographs. It is kinda creepy that the unauthorized doll looks exactly like the late Steven Paul Jobs.
CNN did a story on the action figure produced by inicons.com, and it looks so realistic even they thought they were looking at a photo of the man, before it was pointed out that they were actually looking at a photo of the doll. The doll was announced to the world on January 1, 2012, and will be available to ship in February.
What do you think of the Steve Jobs doll? Looks just like him right? At $99.99, will you buy one? Don’t forget to leave a comment below with your thoughts on this product.
