Earlier this month we learned that Robert Pattinson would be immortalized in wax at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum and today we get to see what his Twilightness looks like as a wax statue. Here is our first look at R. Pattz‘s wax statue at the Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in London, England which was unveiled earlier today:
A ROBERT Pattinson waxwork has been unveiled. The Remember Me actor has become the latest star to be immortalized with a lookalike at London’s Madame Tussauds, and some of his fans were invited to a VIP unveiling to meet the imitation Thursday morning. “The figure looks really great!” said one R-Patz fan. “Just like him — his hair is spot on. It’s amazing, almost like meeting the real thing! I’m sure people are going to love it; he is just gorgeous.” The waxwork has the trademark messy hair and narrow-eyed expression of the real Robert, and museum organizers are in no doubts that he will quickly become one of their hottest attractions. “Pattinson is one of the hottest celebs on the planet,” said Madame Tussauds spokesperson Liz Edwards. “We are delighted to be able to give them the chance to cosy up with their idol here at Madame Tussauds and judging by the reactions of the first to meet him here this morning he is set to top our “most kissed list of celebrities very quickly!” Robert’s waxwork took four months to make and cost $300,000.
BUT … there’s more!! Another Robert Pattinson waxwork was unveiled today as well, this time at the Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museuem in NYC, NY. And, in all honesty, I think the NYC statue looks much better than the London statue does. Check it out, after the jump …
Fans descended upon the wax figure of Twilight’s vampire heartthrob Robert Pattinson the famous Madame Tussauds’s New York museum unveiled on Thursday, while another statue is also in place at the group’s London branch. “The studios team recreated R-Pattz’s trademark sultry expression and messy hair, and his outfit will reflect his rugged style with an open collared shirt and skinny trousers,” said Madam Tussauds, which has replicated the likes of Michael Jackson, Angelina Jolie and scores of other high-profile celebrities. It takes about four months to mold and paint a wax statue, which costs about $220,000, Madame Tussauds said.
I really like the NYC statue better … which one do YOU prefer? And (if you can keep it clean), what would YOU like to do with these statues?
