Madame Tussaud’s Hollywood Adds Captain Picard Wax Figure – Paired With Captain Kirk Figure

Last November Madame Tussaud’s in Hollywood unveiled their wax figure of the original Captain James T. Kirk. Today Tussaud’s has expanded their Trek display with a was figure of Captain Jean Luc Picard. We have photos of the new figure below, plus a special discount offer.

 

Kirk and Picard – together again

Today Captain Picard joined Captain Kirk on Hollywood Blvd at Madame Tussaud’s Hollywood. The wax museum has provided TrekMovie with some images of their new Star Trek display.

Madame Tussaud’s moved their Captain Picard wax figure from their Las Vegas Location to their Hollywood location to pair him up with their previously unveiled Captain Kirk figure, and to enhance their Star Trek display, which includes a simulation of a TOS movie-era Enterprise bridge and a captain’s chair (which you can sit on).

Madame Tussaud’s is now the only place you can see both Captain Kirk and Captain Picard in Wax. Tussaud’s encourages visitors to sit in the Captain’s chair or sidle up to the figures for photos (no extra charge).

Madame Tussauds Hollywood is located next to the world famous Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and Walk of Fame. The museum contains over 100 life-like wax figures from the world of film, music, sports and politics, spread over three floors of attraction space. More info at Madame Tussaud’s Hollywood.

These are all pretty Kool. I wish they would also do one on the Tos bridge with the Tos Crew as well. But this is some great stuff.

Great moment, although I wish the camera work was more professional. Love the Shat!

I was there for the Picard (which is just uncanny), the Kirk one looks cool but needs a haircut and needs the belt pulled up! It’s nice to see the refit bridge get some attention, although I’ve always favored the Enterprise bridge from ST: VI.

Next goal for the wax museum should be to add Sisko, Janeway, Archer, and Pine-Kirk.

The Picard is nice…but the pants are wrong.

Do I see silver rankpins?

Would be awesome if they eventually include wax figures of all 5 Starfleet Captains (Archer, Kirk, Picard, Sisko, Janeway).

Why does the Shat have Elvis hair?

hmm…

Boy they are scarry real, especally Shat’s wig!

I saw the same thing right off the bat. THIS IS A DISASTER!

With Kirk’s libido, I’d hate to see them in “Night at the Museum III” Yuck.

Never mind Picard’s pant cuffs. Is he sporting a ‘waxie?’

Also, Kirk’s hair looks like he borrowed it from Adrian Zmed.

Kidzin’ cause I’m lovin’.

The late Movieland Wax Museum in California had a TOS bridge diorama for many years. (Not 100% accurate, but more than a chair and wallpaper backdrop.) Everything was auctioned off when they closed several years back.

I wonder where those wax figures are now?

Wow. The wax figurine is more lifelike than the real deal.

thats the kind of scene i was expecting for Generations… (the Ent A having been thrown foward in time…or maybe the Ent D back to Kirks era)

instead of them cooking eggs and riding horses

You have to admit it looks better than in the show.

Spock should be standing next to Kirk!!!

Discount if I go in full klingon Uniform??

Cooking eggs, riding horses, and falling off rusty bridges. I mean, why is anybody using old-fashioned chain-link chains on bridges in thr 24th Century in the first place? And secondly … gawd, its like 1994 all over again … *shaking fist impotently skyward*

looks like CGI

Wonder if they have a Malcolm McDowell figure anywhere?

It really makes me wonder – they study and study and study
what these folks look like…go to GREAT LENGTHS to be as
accurate as humanly possible….and get the easiest Starfleet
slacks design to make…and THEY SCREW IT UP. Not one
person (and I’m sure there were many) didn’t notice?!?

Please, powers that be, find a real Trek fan and let them
quality control your work before you create the figure…it’s
not brain surgery (well, it’s not Spock brain surgery anyway).

Everyone’s obsessed about Picard’s pants. What about his hair? Or lack thereof. During the show, he was NOT utterly bald. He had fringe. Not here though. He’s Mister Clean.

I like the lens flare effects painted on the background photo! haha…

Please keep us updated on the pants situation.

To everyone who is complaining about the pants: They are tucked in at the bottom unlike how we saw Picard wear them on the show. So we don’t know for sure whether or not those are the exact pants Patrick wore. The shirt matches; there’s no reason to believe it’s any different in regards to the pants. As for the lack of hair on the wax Picard, yeah that’s a valid point. And they seem to have trouble getting Shatner’s toupee just right.

Kirk hair is a bit big, but a great likeness.

“Brought a tear to my eye… ” Scotty, Generations

I’m such a geek, but I have to go see this!

Star Trek Generations is now immortalized in wax with Kirk and Picard.

@29 Yep!

They should have shown Kirk in his thirties the way he looked in the original series.

Imagine the disaster if there’s ever a major power outage at Madame Tussaud’s.

Picard actually looks like him.
Kirk is somewhat close but the hair is all wrong. His toupeé in TWOK was rather more curly. Bit like Tom Jones.

The Kirk is Admiral Kirk from the Wrath of Kahn. This was a stipulation made by Paramount.

#28 c’mon Bob, spin that writers hat in the right direction and you could see it for real, Mister!

(not that I personally want cameos. Or indeed any ‘old’ alumni in 2.0. Just my preference. ;-) )

#7 I think they borrowed the Elvis hair off ‘nuold Kirk’ James Cawley.

Is Admiral Kirk bigger than life or did William Shatner shrink a lot?

#25 I’m glad we have you to clear everything up !

Lens flares in the background picture!

#12 I think I remember reading in a Starlog magazine about the bridge set and the figures from Movieland being purchased by a fan who then had it setup in his house. I remember seeing that display along with some other really cool ones (The Poseidon Adventure & Superman stand out in my memory) in the early 80’s. Too bad the museum didn’t survive….

Hope they do Spock and McCoy next.

SHOPPED!

Hats off to the artists that created these Sculptured Icons!

Is Shatner shrinking?

Picard’s boots are goofy. I didn’t think the pant legs were bloused in TNG era.

One word for Shatners hair tho

Bouffant !

or is he wearing a tribble?

I like the figures captures a life like image for all time!

Looks like Kirk’s “Wrath of Khan” head on his “Generations” body. His jacket is hanging funny. Now Picard’s torso and posture look very natural. All they have to do is pull the pants out of his boots. Some staffer probably saw Kirk’s pants tucked in and thought he was supposed to do the same.

Re:45 I believe the TNG cuffs were actually split to fall neatly over the top of the shoe/boot.

Oh good, others have noticed the bloused pants on picard. It was the first thing I saw LOL.
