The Steve Jobs Action Figure Is Canceled

In Icons, the company responsible for the freaky-awesome Steve Jobs action figure, is stopping production because of legal threats from Apple and Jobs' family.

In a statement, Tandy Cheung, the Hong Kong businessman behind the doll said:

"Though we still believe that we have not overstepped any legal boundaries, we have decided to completely stop the offer, production and sale of the Steve Jobs figurine out of our heartfelt sensitivity to the feelings of the Jobs family."

One thing is certain: these dolls are now going to be super expensive. One is already for sale on eBay for $2,500; expect that figure to grow in the future. [PC World]
