Yesterday, Madame Tussauds London museum unveiled its 13th wax figure of Michael Jackson. The wax figure of the late King of Pop has been in works for the past four months and was to be revealed to coincide with Michael’s “This is It” concert tour in London.
The new figure is modeled on a Jackson pose from the concert poster, the museum said. It shows him “arms outstretched, pelvis thrusting and tip-toed, with his trademark trilby angled forward,” the museum said.
“It is extremely unusual for a personality to have been portrayed so many times,” said Madame Tussauds spokeswoman Liz Edwards.
“But Michael Jackson was totally unique and his iconic status made him one of the most popular stars here.”
