The newest wax figure to join the Wolf Pack will be of Zach Galifianakis as “Alan,” appropriately styled in his iconic “Human Tree” T-shirt, white jeans, sneakers and, of course, his famous satchel.

Created in conjunction with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Madame Tussauds began creating The Hangover Experience in July 2014. As for the creation of the “Alan” figure, a team of 20 Madame Tussauds studio artists began creating in March 2014. They were inspired by his comic demeanor in the film including his ensemble, as well as his look and mannerisms.
The team began the process by researching and incorporating more than 200 measurements for the initial clay mold. Once the clay mold was completed, the artists created a plaster cast, into which they poured a mixture of beeswax and Japan wax. Over the course of six weeks, one artist inserted each strand of hair by hand, sporting up to 10,000 strands. Lastly, acrylic eyes and teeth, as well as lifelike paint were added as the finishing touches.
