Lots of people have tried to find a way to profit off of Steve Jobs’ death, Apple probably being the biggest example. (I’m surprised there hasn’t been a commemorative Steve Jobs iPod released.) But one of the more creative ways thus far to pay homage to the late Apple genius has to be the Steve Jobs action figure.
In Icons, an action figure maker, has revolutionized the way you look at action figures. The Steve Jobs action figure is lighter and easier to use than any other action figure on the market. Yes, it has Bluetooth. (Kidding.)
Apple doesn’t like this, though, and they’re threatening to sue In Icons for … what, exactly? As long as Apple products aren’t included with the action figure, it’s hard to argue In Icons is violating anything, since Jobs was a public figure.
Is Apple thinking of preserving its integrity by not having an action figure of their founder? Barack Obama has an action figure! Does Apple think they’re better than the president?
