So, you don’t just love Apple and its iconic electronic devices, you fancy yourself as something of an aficionado. You know all there is to know about the Cupertino-based gadget giant, and you’re often first in line when a new product launches. Respect.

Given that we here at The Tech Herald freely acknowledge such brand loyalty and consumer dedication, we thought it only right to point you in the direction of a product that stretches the very boundaries of established Apple fanboyism.

Prepare to be more than a little creeped-out as we reveal Steve Jobs, the recently deceased creative force behind Apple Inc., in 1:6 scale ‘action figure’ format—no April 1 hasn’t come early.

Offered up by In Icons, this eerie re-creation portrays a latter-day Jobs dressed in the simple black turtleneck shirt and blue jeans combo he often favored in everyday life and also while on stage revealing Apple’s latest creations.

The pose-able 12-inch figure also boasts contributory details such as graying stubble, removable spectacles, and a healthy fullness in the cheeks—thus avoiding the gaunt physical look carried by Jobs during his protracted battle with pancreatic cancer.

Other additional extras include a couple of apples for the figure to hold—one with a bite missing, one without—a pair of black socks, a stool, and a blue keynote backdrop with “One more thing…” written across it.

The Steve Jobs action figure comes attached to a price of $99.99 USD and will be available for ‘real fans’ before the close of February.

Sadly, the miniature Mac computer, iPhone and iPad accessories accompanying the doll on the official In Icons website are not included in the price. Boo.
