It remained to be seen whether Apple will take to the courts to block In Icons from selling the 30.4-centimetre tall dolls crafted in the image of the renowned California company's late co-founder.

An In Icons website on Tuesday featured images of the jointed figure in classic Jobs poses accompanied with quotes including "The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do."

The US$99 (A$95) dolls depict Jobs with a closely cropped beard and his familiar round "John Lennon" style eyeglasses. Accessories available at extra cost included his trademark sneakers, blue jeans, and black turtle neck sweater.

Last year, the maker of iPhones, iPads, iPods and Macintosh computers blocked the sale of unauthorized Steve Jobs bobble-head dolls made by a different company in China.

Jobs died on October 5 at the age of 56 after a years-long battle with cancer.
