InIcons, a Chinese company, is prepared to launch a scale model of the late Apple founder Steve Jobs.
The “collectible figure” is 1:6 scale and wears Steve Jobs’ trademark poloneck, jeans and glasses.
Steve Jobs figure will retail for $99.99 and go on sale in February – Apple’s lawyers permitting.
InIcons has not released sales figures, but has already stopped taking pre-orders.
In the past, InIcons has been quick to take legal action against Steve Jobs models such as one featuring the Apple guru as a ninja – poking fun at Steve Jobs alleged attempt to take souvenir ninja “shuriken” throwing stars on a plane.
Apple’s laywers said: “Mr. Jobs has not consented to the use of his name and/or image in the Product.”
If the InIcons model actually makes it to market, buyers will get “One realistic head with two pairs of glasses, one body and three pairs of hands” plus a complete Steve Jobs outfit – poloneck, blue jeans and trainers.
You also get two Apple logos – a risky move that makes the InIcons model even more vulnerable to legal action.
