Unofficial Steve Jobs action figure is so realistic it’s creepy

By Rosa Golijan

I adore action figures and I respect Apple’s late co-founder Steve Jobs, but the Steve Jobs action figure that’s supposedly becoming available in late February makes me want to run away screaming.

Just look at it! It’s so realistic that it’s genuinely a little bit unnerving.

The Verge’s Joseph L. Flatley seems to agree with my assessment — though he prefers to describe the action figure as “pretty awesome” yet almost “Uncanny Valley-creepy.”

Flatley reports that the 1:6 scale figure will be distributed by a company called DiD Corp., cost a hundred bucks (plus shipping) once it becomes available in February, and have some remarkable characteristics. Creepily remarkable characteristics, that is:

The company wants you to take note of [the action figure’s] “piercing eyes of soul” that will “always remind you to stay hungry, stay foolish and to follow your heart in the limited life.”

Am I the only one shuddering? Must be all those creepy beady-eyed dolls I encountered as a child.

It’s worth noting that DiD Corp.’s figurine isn’t the first of its kind. Toward the end of 2010, Steve Jobs action figures were sold through and by a website called M.I.C. Gadget. The fun didn’t last long though, because a law firm representing Apple quickly requested that the company cease marketing and selling the action figure.

Will the (far more realistic) action figure offered DiD Corp. suffer the same fate? We’ll just have to wait and see.
