Eternised Steve Jobs in a '12-Inch Action Figure'
Former Apple's Visionary Co-founder Steve Jobs commemorated as an action figure by a couple of toy companies only after three months since his death.

Toy companies 'in icons' and 'Dragon in Dream' unveiled the 12-inch action figure called 'iCEO mini' in tribute to the tech visionary who gave the world the Mac, iPhone, iPad and iPod.

The figure features Jobs' trademark black turtleneck, jeans and sandshoes, The Daily Mail reports.

The figure is due for release in late February for 99.99 dollars plus shipping.

According to the paper, Apple or Jobs's family might take action to block the use of Jobs' likeness, as they did in 2010 when a company called MIC Gadget attempted to sell Jobs' action figures on eBay.

But 'Dragon In Dream' has managed to release unauthorised figures in the past, depicting such famous people as US President Barack Obama.

Steve Jobs died on October 5 last year after a seven-year battle with pancreatic cancer.
