The Steve Jobs Action Figure Is God Damn Impressive



What the fuck? Did Steven Spielberg and James Cameron get together and reincarnate Steve Jobs with plastic and turtleneck material? If it weren't for the blatant action-figure disconnect going on with those wrists, I'd be convinced that this was some cell-phone convention from 2009.

Not since the Power Rangers Megazord has an action figure caused this much of a stir in my life. Granted, this too-real Steve Jobs creation is not composed of a mastodon, pterodactyl, triceratops, saber-toothed tiger, and tyrannosaurus (and sometimes the Dragon Zord when shit got crazy), but damn I'm impressed strictly from a hologram/CGI standpoint. If we can do shit like this, I'm positive I can live forever we can make strides in medicine and other nice things. I'm definitely a little scared too though. Can't have millions of plastic, real Steve Jobses walking around with Watson the Jeopardy winning robot still somehow alive.

Regardless, fantastic presentation.
