You may remember last year when toy maker M.I.C. Gadget set the nerd ecosystem ablaze with a realistic mini Steve Jobs doll. Apple, having almost no sense of humor, threatened legal action. M.I.C. Gadget quickly removed the $70 doll, which set the value of those already in existence through the roof. Now, they have released a new "more friendly" CEO doll. Behold the "Poking Inventor" Mark Zuckerberg .
This Zuckerberg likeness can be yours for the low, low price of $70. Instead of the iPhone from the Jobs statue, this doll carries a Facebook 'Like' button and is decked out in jeans and flip-flops. M.I.C. Gadget says the doll is "inspired from a man who makes the world more open and connected."
We will admit this is an interesting bit of desk flair, but the price is high. The Jobs version may have gotten the attention of the Apple faithful, but we're not sure this one will be as successful. Anyone biting?
