Steve Jobs Doll Pulled From Production

CUPERTINO, Calif., Jan. 17 (UPI) — An action figure of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has been pulled from production at the request of his family and the California-based technology company.

In Icons, which began advertising the lifelike doll Jan. 3, said it is canceling the 1-foot action figure at the request of Apple and the Jobs family. Jobs died in October of complications from pancreatic cancer.

“Though we still believe that we have not overstepped any legal boundaries, we have decided to completely stop the offer, production and sale of the Steve Jobs figurine out of our heartfelt sensitivity to the feelings of the Jobs family,” the company said Sunday in a statement.

“We have received immense pressure from the lawyers of Apple and Steve Jobs’ family,” the company said.

Customers who had ordered the dolls, which were expected to ship in February, will receive refunds, In Icons said
