If the iPhone is enough to satiate your need for all things Apple, perhaps you’ll consider a small investment in this Steve Jobs ninja statue aptly named the “Pineapple CEO”. Get it?
From what we understand, Apple has be sent a cease and desist order to MICGadget since Steve didn’t approve the likeness or use of his name. And although the company behind the toy was careful to not show his face in full on the product’s website, it’s pretty damn evident who it is.
The figurine ships with a shuriken, or ninja star held in the left hand, and a modular set of arms with white or black iPhone that can be popped in or out of the figurine’s body. But the details don’t end there. There is the quintessential black turtle neck tucked into the jeans, the glasses and the sneakers. MICGadgets has also included word bubbles with its very own mounting system so the “Pineapple CEO” can say what ever you fancy.
Currently the figurine is sold out and we’re not sure if it will ever go back on sale given the legal action threatened towards the company. But you should know it ain’t cheap; $89.90 plus $10 shipping.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
