    So, is anyone going to buy the Steve Jobs Action Figure?

    I didn't find a MR post on this yet. I'm tempted...but also sort of creeped out by it.

    There are several actually. ;)

    To answer your question: No I won't.
    Ghastly.

    Extremely creepy and in appallingly bad taste.

    I won't post the ebay link of the seller who has windows installed on his Mac.

    Very creepy; hell no.
    Wouldn't even buy it for $1, so $99 is out of question.

    I can think of one prolific MR user who will probably buy all of them so he can roll naked in them...

    I think we all know who I mean.

    Absolutely not. People just trying to cash in on the misfortune of others.

    Actually, I'm amazed by the detail of the head. It's frighteningly realistic.

    The hands and arms, not so much.

    But I'm holding out for the voice-equipped one that heaps verbal abuse on all your other action figures.

    Nope, couldn't have one. The thought of waking up and seeing it watching me turns me off to the idea.

    Totally different concept, as are statues. I would not be at all offended by these. The concept of a doll sitting on my desk turns my gut.

    Haha I can understand hat, I'd be creeped out by how realistic the face is, just staring at me...but offended because he's dead?

    In my eyes very bad taste ... Will not buy one. As others mentioned before: better to spend the money on the next incarnation of iPad / iPhone
