Robert Pattinson Wax Figure Unveiled, But Fans Think It’s ‘Laughably Bad’

Robert Pattinson’s wax figure has been unveiled at the famous wax museum Madame Tussauds in England, but fans don’t feel the sculpture does the Twilight actor justice.

Robert Pattinson’s wax figure debuted earlier this week in England, and the Madame Tussauds exhibit was several months in the making.

Robert Pattinson’s wax figure was unveiled on the 23rd in Blackpool, England to much fanfare from Twilight devotees — the blog Hollywood Life explained that the hubbub surrounding the new wax figure was very intense, and very expensive:

“Hundreds of screaming fans waited for hours to see the wax figure, and to get their photo taken with ‘Rob’. The staff at Madame Tussauds even had to hire extra security to protect the wax version of the Twilight star, as it took four months and cost $240,000 to create.”

But while fans were jazzed for the introduction of the Robert Pattinson wax figure, a few were displeased with the results of the six-figure effort to recreate the world’s whiniest and most milquetoast vampire in the medium of sculpted wax.

It’s to be expected that fan reaction to the Robert Pattinson wax figure would be critical, considering the notoriously rabid fan base Twilight has amassed in its four years of media domination. But still, many say the Pattinson wax statue crossed the line from uncanny valley to just plain funny.

Are you a Robert Pattinson fan that feels the Robert Pattinson wax figure looks nothing like your favorite vamp, or is the likeness reasonable?

    my co-worker's mom made $16308 last week. she is getting paid on the laptop and got a $507100 home. All she did was get lucky and put into use the instructions exposed on this link try37.c☸m.

    I agree the hair is the wrong color and to thick on the sides or something.. weird..

  3. Joyce Whitt

    It's horrible. I'd find its an insult if I were Rob. This is in his home country. It's CREEPY!

  4. Karen Braden

    Not a good resemblance at all. The beard needs to be thicker and the hair more wild and hand swept. Not a good job at all.

  5. Sarah Hale

    seriously? they made his forehead HUGE! looks nothing like his, the hair, face nothing. you would think the Brits would get it right since England is his home country.

    That's not Rob! It's Hugh Dancy: http://www.google.com/imgres?num=10&hl=en&biw=1280&bih=687&tbm=isch&tbnid=SDmSW3HKG5mxMM:&imgrefurl=http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0199215/&docid=kT-9LaW6zBlEsM&imgurl=http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/MV5BMTUzNTgxMDM2OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMTQ1Mzc3Mg%2540%2540._V1._SX214_CR0,0,214,314_.jpg&w=214&h=314&ei=e_-LUJ9ThuaLAuKmgJgE&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=192&vpy=170&dur=446&hovh=144&hovw=98&tx=94&ty=114&sig=103158417754589187715&page=1&tbnh=144&tbnw=98&start=0&ndsp=26&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:0,i:138.

    It looks coolish in general, but it doesn't look like him, though more of a younger Leonardo DiCaprio.

  8. Lisa Sandoval-Byron

    It looks like a cross between Robert Pattinson and Leo Decapprio..Creepy! Re-do!

  9. Jacqulyne Szymanski-Miller

    It looks like Robert Pattinson and Gerard Butler had a baby….

  10. Brenda Alvarez

    Did he pose for it? It is harder to get it right if the person doesn't pose. Madame Tussaud's usually gets it right.

  11. Neon Watson

    The jawline is not wide or square enough, the hair is too dark, forehead to high, eyes too squinty and not cat like enough, lips too thin, facial hair too dark. The artist should be fired for destroying the image of the most beautiful male actor in Hollywood.

  12. Donna Marcus Bond

    Maybe it would look okay if the hair were more like his…

  13. Dolores Troeller

    Wow.. When are they going to leave this guy alone.. If I was him I would take my money, dog ( and Kristen if she wants to go) and disappear for a very long time.. He has to be so over this by now.

  14. Armando Castillo

    It's an improvement. The real story here is $240,000 for a wax doll of a millionaire actor from really bad movies and books? I guess world hunger has ended.

  15. Tracey Bown Riley

    did u know robert and kristen really have split up or not reply me ??

  16. Shilo Slider Turri

    wow I would never have thought this was to be pattinson…this is a horrid wax figure.

  17. Ryanne T. Murray

    I hate that overhyped annoying little douchebag, so the fact that they screwed up his statue is just another reason to laugh at him….snort.
