Rob’s Wax Figure: First Look

The picture above is of the wax ‘likeness’ due to be unveiled by Madame Tussauds in New York and London this Thursday. Let us know what you think of the waxwork. Is it s good likeness? Do you think it’s a bit….creepy?


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.
