Madame Tussauds Unveils Eerily Realistic Pictures of Steve Jobs Wax Figure

To commemorate the one-year anniversary of Steve Jobs‘s death, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong will have on display a wax figure of the Apple co-founder starting at the end of September. To give fans a glimpse at what they could expect, the wax museum today unveiled some photos of the Jobs wax figure in the process of being made.

According to Madame Tussauds, the figure’s pose was inspired by photographs Jobs took for the cover of Fortune magazine in 2006. The statue will have him wearing his signature black mock turtleneck, blue jeans, and Lunor glasses. The museum says it took artists three months to create the statue and ran up a bill of $193,476.

That Steve Jobs wax figure will be on display at Madam Tussauds Hong Kong from September 27 to November 26. After that, it’s going on a tour to Madame Tussauds Bangkok and then Madame Tussauds Shanghai.
