Hi there :)

An action figure of Steve Jobs by MIC (made in China) gadgets last week proved immensely successful and this is my version of the same toy –

You can take a look at the real one here – http://micgadget.com/9634/phenomenal-steve-jobs-figure-hands-on/

Every true Apple fan craved for it to be put beside his Macs, iPods, iPhones etc. This is truly a beautifully crafted work of art with all the necessary details – Jobs’ trademark black turtleneck, blue jeans, and (removable) rimless glasses are all there, and even the tiny details like the faithfully replicated New Balance 991 sneakers.

The price is $80, but let’s not comment on whether that’s too much for Apple’s boss, immortalized in plastic. After all, every Apple product is priceless!

But what really saddened me, is the Marketing Genius’ reaction to the frenzy. He has no sense of humor, I must say. He ordered MIC gadgets to stop the product immediately. And we can’t own it anymore :(

Is this the beginning of the last act of Apple’s marketing extravaganza – the hubris?
