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.
