Just because they could – Steve Jobs action figure

Yep, you read that right. It's an action figure. A Steve Jobs action figure. For reals.

Believe it or not, the image above is not a photo of the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs – it's a close up of an action figure.

The super-realistic 12in poseable figurine can be yours for a mere US$99 and comes with a cavalcade of detailed extras including variant hands, Jobs' iconic black turtleneck, a pair of jeans and even a 'one more thing' backdrop.

Is it freaky? Yes. Is it neccessary? No. Will the Jobs family's lawyers sue manufacturer In Icons like there's no tomorrow? You bet they will...
