Oshima Yuko Wax Figure at Madame Tussauds

Published on October 19th, 2011.

On October 19th, 2011, Oshima Yuko of AKB48 unveiled a wax figure of herself at Madame Tussauds, Tokyo.

Back in July, Yuko was measured from head to toe for over 2 hours. The measurements were then sent to a production team in London where they created a life-sized Yuko in just over 3 months. The wax figure is estimated to be worth ¥19M.

During the unveiling, Yuko proceded to touch the breasts of the wax figure and said  ”… I may thank you, but mine are more tender.” As Yuko’s figure is surrounded by famous celebrities such as Michael Jackson and Johnny Deep, she’s overwhelmed with joy. To think, she’s in the same room as Hollywood’s biggest stars!

Now’s your chance to see Yuko with your own eyes whenever you want! Be it a wax figure or not it’s damn close!  I know I’ll be making a visit :-).

Thanks for the tip Gina!

    I still think they do a ridiculously good job of those wax figures considering they must be fucking hard to make :P
