Remember that amazingly detailed and articulated Steve Jobs Collectible Action Figure by Legend Toys of Japan? The one that got a lot of buzz and then the production was quickly shut down? Well, they are back – at least in my inbox. I received an email today that the dolls are now available to order.
Steve Jobs Collectible Action Figure
The 12″ doll was sculpted by Takao Kato, whose work includes 1:16 scale and 1:4 scale figures for the otaku market.
The background (taken from their own site, hence the clunky translation):
On the anniversary of Steve Jobs death. People around the world are remembering him because they were fascinated and moved by his passion and creativity. This also became the idea of making this figure. Our wholehearted design team with astounding technique make this life like high quality 12 inch collectible figure possible. Even his clothing has been reproduced so detailed!! The set also comes with a leather sofa and his beloved “Apple”!!
※iPhone, iPad and other Apple products are NOT included.
※Prototype shown, final product appearance and colours may vary.
On concerns that Apple will force the company to pull the item, Yuichi Kimura of Legend Toys would only say: “We do not have any permission from anyone and we don’t think it is necessary to obtain permission from anyone.”
