MADAME TUSSAUDS LAS VEGAS UNVEILS WAX FIGURE OF MARVEL’S SUPER HERO, THOR
Earlier today (May 14, 2013), Madame Tussauds Las Vegas unveiled a wax figure of Marvel’s Super Hero, Thor, for a limited engagement.
The launch of Thor is part of ‘Marvel Month of May’ celebrations as six Madame Tussauds locations welcome a variety of different Superheroes to their attractions. Locations include New York, London, Blackpool, Hong Kong and Bangkok.
The wax figure of Thor was created following a two-day sitting with Thor actor Chris Hemsworth to ensure an authentic likeness. Madame Tussauds also worked very closely with Marvel Studios throughout the creation process, including reviewing detailed references for the hair and costume. Thor’s famous hammer features a vacuum metalized finish, giving it a metal plated effect.
