Robert Pattinson is planning an invasion on NYC’s Times Square! No, he won’t be flashing those dreamy eyes and that hot bod in person, but he will be there in spirit — or, in this case, wax.
Madame Tussauds will feature a wax model of the “Twilight” star in both their New York City and London museums for fans to oogle at on either side of the pond. Photos of the mold were released today that show the molding of Robert’s head in progress. The clay head mold represents a crucial step in the up to six month-long figure creation process. According to a press release, a team of studio artists at the museum have been studying hundreds of photos and analyzing hours of video to ensure that they capture R-Pattz’s trademark sultry expression and inimitable style. Is anyone else wondering how they can sign up for that job?
So, how did the decision to sculpt this hottie come about? “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.
The figure will be unveiled on March 25, and if you’re in the New York City area, and want to attend the launch of Robert’s figure at Madame Tussauds, head to their homepage beginning March 11 for details about how to check it out!
