Steve Jobs To Get Action Figure. Who’s Next?

Steve Jobs innovator, visionary, and action figure?

Yes, it’s true; the Apple co-founder’s likeness has been immortalized in plastic. The 12-inch Steve Jobs action figure will begin shipping next month from Chinese company In Icons.

IGN reports the action figure—which is an unlicensed product—has become so popular that In Icons has not only had to stop taking pre-orders, but the wave of unexpected internet traffic has also caused company’s website to become non-functional from time to time.

However, if the company gets things back on track you may still be able to order your own (creepy) action figure of Apple’s former CEO for around $100, but how cool would it be if you could also pick up an unlicensed 12-inch version of a few other famous faces? Ones targeted at the gay collector?

Wouldn’t it be great to own an Anderson Cooper figure with an “uncontrollable giggling” voice chip?

How about a Darren Criss doll that sings “Teenage Dream” or a Ryan Gosling figure with “abs flexing action”?

Better yet, what do you think about a “scented” Rick Santorum figure that gives off an odor reminiscent of his Google definition?

While we’re at it, why not add a 12-inch Ricky Martin to the mix?

He could come packaged with two baby figures and have a “hip rocking” action feature. The company could even have a limited mail away for Martin's fiancé when you send in the UPC codes from all 5 figures.

Yes, the possibilities are endless, but we’d love to know which one of these you’d proudly display or your shelf.
