But the techies already made a spot for him on their shrine, LOL!!!
So that action figure of Steve Jobs?? We KNEW it wouldn't hit the shelves.
We just knew the family and the estate would hate the idea. And of course they did!!
In Icon released a statement addressing the cancellation of the
doll action figure:
Unfortunately we have received immense pressure from the lawyers of Apple and Steve Jobs family. Regardless of the pressure, I am still Steve’s fan, I fully respect Steve, and his family, and it is definitely not my wish or intention that they be upset. 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.
We understand that this decision will cause many of the fans' disappointment, but please forgive us as there is no other alternative unless to have the blessing from Steve Jobs family… We will aim to have full refund to the fans who have pre-ordered.
But you can still cut a picture out of a magazine and paste it on some cardboard, ha!
And in the meantime, just watch the commercial (above) over and over!!
