Black Like Moi reports:
In Icons, the company that advertised life-like Steve Jobs figurines have caved to pressure from the family and Apple lawyers and halted the shipment.
The 1-foot tall figure was dressed in Job’s signature black mock turtleneck, rimless glasses and jeans.
The company posted a statement on its website Sunday saying that the “immense pressure” informed their decision and out of “heartfelt sensitivity to the Jobs family” they would not sell the figures, reports the San Jose Mercury.
Jobs died October 5 of complications from pancreatic cancer.
The figures were set to be shipped on Friday; In Icons has promised a refund for any pre-sold orders.
