Madame Tussauds unveiled their first pictures of a Steve Jobs wax figure that will go on display at its Hong Kong location later this month to commemorate the one year anniversary of his death. And like any Madame Tussauds wax figures, this one looks eerily real.
The figure depicts the Apple founder in his trademark outfit - blue jeans and a turtle neck, and his pose is based on pictures taken of him during a photoshoot for the cover of Fortune in 2008.
In a press release, Madame Tussauds said the figure cost about $193,486 to make (or about $1.5 million in Hong Kong dollars.) Visitors will be able to view the wax figure in Hong Kong from Sept. 27 through Nov. 26 of this year.
How does Apple feel about it? At this point, they are not mentioning anything. But previous attempts to make a figurine out of him hasn't been good. Earlier this year, Apple reportedly threatened to sue a company producing a Steve Jobs action figure.
