Here's a great gift for the Steve Jobs fan on your holiday shopping list, the newest action figure of the late co-founder of Apple made by Legend Toys. For $199.99
(the same price of an Apple iPhone 5
on contract), you get the 12 inch detailed figure, glasses, sofa, a small Apple and three pairs of hands. It is an older Jobs than the figure made by Japanese company In Icons
which was pulled from the market
after complaints from Apple and Jobs' family.

The 12 inch figure is done at a scale of 1:6. Legends' Yuichi Kimura says that the company did not obtain permission from anyone to produce the figure, and says that it believes none is required
. Of course, words like that were probably uttered by Samsung executives at one time or another, and look where it got them.
When we were kids, action figures owned Malibu beachhouses or fought commies in the Meking Delta with a sharp knife. Now, we celebrate the Geeks and Nerds with these toys. The Steve Jobs action figure will be available at the end of the month,
