Steve Jobs Action Figure Looks So Real It's Uncanny (Valley)

This Steve Jobs action figure is the latest in offbeat tributes to the late Apple co-founder--and perhaps one of the most unnerving.

A lot of people loved Apple CEO Steve Jobs before his passing and, in true human fashion, we express our admiration in some pretty strange ways. Take, for instance, this Steve Jobs doll sold by In Icons and distributed by DiD Corp.

There's no doubt that this action figure--a 1:6 scale replica of the real Steve Jobs--was made with a very keen eye towards the "feel" of El Steve, from the intimidating arched eyebrows to the "I've got bigger things to worry about" stubble growth. The Jobs doll/action figure also features Steve's trademark turtleneck, jeans, and New Balance sneakers (would you even recognize it as Steve Jobs if it weren't?), and In Icons shows it in a number of classic Steve Jobs poses.

It's not the only Steve Jobs doll on the market, of course, but it's likely the most realistic (and arguably, the most disconcerting). Where other dolls on the market (such as those from Podbrix) are more caricatures of the well-known tech mogul, this is much more life-like (and by "life like" we mean "frikkin' creepy").

You can look forward to getting your hands on this treasure for a scant $99 in late February.
