“Madame Tussauds New York today released photos of a clay head mold of Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson (or R-Pattz, as his loyal legion of admirers call him). The famed Times Square wax attraction also announced that Pattinson’s completed figure will be unveiled on March 25, 2010, and that R-Pattz’s biggest fans will be invited to be part of the debut event.

The clay head mold represents a crucial step in the up to six month-long figure creation process. A team of studio artists at Madame Tussauds have been studying hundreds of photos and pouring through hours of video to ensure that they capture R-Pattz’s trademark sultry expression and inimitable style. The artists are also working double-time to create not one, but two wax likenesses of Pattinson – one for Madame Tussauds New York and one for Madame Tussauds London.

“Since the release of Twilight, we have been inundated with requests for a figure of Robert Pattinson and are thrilled that in just a few weeks, his figure will officially be part of Madame Tussauds New York. It comes at the perfect time with his next film, Remember Me, expected to light up the box office throughout the month of March,” said Janine DiGioacchino, General Manager of Madame Tussauds New York and Washington D.C.

When Pattinson’s figure is unveiled on March 25, the Twilight star will join the likes of Hollywood leading men Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Craig, Johnny Depp, George Clooney, Will Smith and Sean “Diddy” Combs – all of whom have been immortalized in wax by Madame Tussauds New York. Visitors will be able to cozy up with Pattinson’s figure for a photo or even a hug.

Fans who wish to attend the launch of Pattinson’s figure at Madame Tussauds New York should visit www.nycwax.com beginning March 11 for details about how to be part of the R-Pattz fandemonium.

Comments

  1. How do they know who Rob’s biggest fans are?

  2. Does not look like Rob at all.

  3. Doesn’t look like Rob. I think it looks more like Heath Ledger.

    • Michelle says:

      Yeah, I kinda noticed that too. Cant wait to see the finished product. By the way arent Rob’s eyes Blue? Is this figure Robert Pattinson or Edward Cullen? Not sure yet?

  4. ya agreed doesnt much look like him

  5. Lomesir says:

    I think it looks a LOT like Rob. Also, it’s far from done. I’ve been to Mme. Tussaud’s London, and I can promise you that all the models are very faithful to the real things.

    • You give me hope on this.

      • Lomesir says:

        Glad to be of service. :) When my sister and I went there, we stood next to some of the models and took picture. My mother actually thought I met Prince William and that my sister met Pierce Brosnan. :D

      • Madame Tussauds measures every inch of the celebrity’s body (like the size of each eye and it’s distance from the nose etc) which is how they get the model identical. It sounds tedious but some days you would REALLY love your job!

  6. I also think it looks a lot like Rob. Maybe not at first glance but definitely when you take a longer look.

  7. ILoveEC says:

    Lol I’m pretty sure any fangirl could re-create him. Hundreds of pictures and hours of video… Hah, amamteur… ;p

  8. Ugh. Creepy! But then again, beauty IS in the eye of the beholder…and if wax is your thing, then go for it man.

  9. I would love to take a picture with Rob’s wax figure!

  10. wow that is incredibly creepy. could they pick a more uncomfortable facial expression?

  11. for me, it looks pretty good. And I particularly LOVE how the mouth is almost smiling, it’s a typical “Rob-look” :)

  12. I find the disembodied clay head so very very very creepy. Like something you’d find in your bed if you angered the Cullen Mafia or something. Yuck.

  13. mandylee. says:

    i’m not going to lie…that’s just creepy.
