First Look at Robert Pattinson's Wax Figure



EXCITED CROWDS OF TWILIGHT FANS TO UNVEIL WAX FIGURE OF HOLLYWOOD HEARTTHROB “R-PATTZ” AT MADAME TUSSAUDS NY

Crowds of screaming fans will flood Times Square to help unveil a wax figure of Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson on Thursday, March 25 at 10:30 a.m. at Madame Tussauds New York, 234 West 42nd St. (b/w 7th & 8th Aves.), Manhattan. After the unveiling, fans will be able to cozy up to R-Pattz’s figure for photos and even a hug. Once immortalized (in wax), the Twilight vampire and Remember Me star will join the likes of Johnny Depp, George Clooney, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Leonardo DiCaprio – all of whom have wax figures in the famed Times Square wax attraction.

Pattinson’s figure is dressed in black trousers and fitted shirt. A jacket in a contrasting color finishes off his young, hip look. R-Pattz’s wax likeness also sports the actor’s signature tousled locks, which fans are invited to run their fingers through. Each strand of hair was inserted one-by-one by the Tussauds studio artists, who created the figure. They spent hundreds of hours studying photos and watching video footage of Pattinson to create the incredibly lifelike figure, which is posed standing up with hands on hips and will be housed in the “Opening Night Party” section of Madame Tussauds New York.

The first 100 fans who arrive to see R-Pattz’s figure on the day it is unveiled will receive free Pattinson and Twi-hard gear, as well as free admission to the attraction. Fans both young and old, often referred to as “Twi-hards,” can’t seem to get enough of R-Pattz. The young British actor became an overnight sensation following his portrayal of Edward Cullen, the beloved vampire in the film adaptation of Twilight. With a loyal following stretching across multiple continents, Pattinson is one of today’s hottest stars. In fact, Madame Tussauds London will also unveil a figure of R.Pattz on the same day as Madame Tussauds New York.

R-Pattz’s fans and representatives from Madame Tussauds NY will be available for interviews on site.

They really don't want that wax figure to last long, do they?

Kristin said...

looks nice, but a bit unlike him.

I agree with Birgit, I don't think it looks like him at all. I don't know what it is about it. I mean I can see certain features that match him but over all it's just off.

Ursula said...

Well it looks a wee bit like him, like some things I guess kinda look like him, but then again, I dont think such beauty can be reproduced anyways ;)

Im going to NYC in May for a Pearl Jam concert, I guess ima have to stop by Madame Tussauds to run my fingers through his hair ... LOL!

NO, NO, the chin and square jaws are off. Instead of posing him with his hands on his hips they should have put his hands in his pockets. I think it looks like him from the nose up, but the mouth, chin and those chiseled jaws are not there. so much for them studying tons of photos.

ewww I DON"T LIKE IT

allyenohealani said...

Yeah, something about this is off. This looks like a mix of Drake Bell and Rob or something.. :/

Although, not all of the wax figurines look quite like their human counterparts.. So I guess Robert was just not meant to be recreated in wax.. :)

Rob will not attend ceremony 25th March London -
New York museum Madame Tussauds sent me info:
@NYCWax: We're so glad to have his figure! There's been millions of requests. Robert's not attending the launch in London either.
(I twitted on @RobLovePatts about Rob&wax, then found message: "Thanks for your tweet! Rob is not attending, but his wax figure sure is. :)", so I asked them about London&got reply)
