Madame Tussauds unveiled a new wax statue of the late superstar Thursday, which was slated to be debuted in tandem with the late singer’s 50-date This Is It series at England’s O2 Arena.
The statue of the ‘Thriller’ star cast him with “arms outstretched, pelvis thrusting and tip-toed, with his trademark trilby angled forward,” the museum said.
The figure — the 13th produced of the ‘Beat It’ singer by the museum — was made about four months ago, according to Madame Tussauds.
“It is extremely unusual for a personality to have been portrayed so many times,” Madame Tussuads spokeswoman Liz Edwards said. “But Michael Jackson was totally unique and his iconic status made him one of the most popular stars here.”
