To coincide with the release of SPECTRE, the line-up of Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig will appear at they London attraction for six weeks only, before embarking on a tour of Madame Tussauds locations worldwide on 1 December 2015.
Created in close collaboration with EON Productions, the set will give fans an opportunity to stand side-by-side with all six Bonds – in the same place, at the same time. Guests are invited to see how they measure up to each 007, pose with their favourite and take a stand out profile picture.
Each of these new wax figures will be featured in a classic 007 dinner suit, designed by Oscar® winning costume designer, Lindy Hemming, based on the original costumes. Lazenby, Moore and Connery recreate different variations of a classic Bond pose – arms folded and pistol held aloft, while Craig, Brosnan and Dalton are shown in more relaxed poses. The six stand tall together against an impactful and iconic gun barrel backdrop, synonymous with the James Bond films.
The Madame Tussauds team already had access to measurements of Craig, Connery, Moore, Dalton and Brosnan from previous figures featured at the attraction, but needed George Lazenby’s to complete the picture. The star of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service was happy to oblige and gave the artists a sitting in LA in February.
The figures took a team of 20 artists, four months to complete at a cost of £150,000 each. Hundreds of layers of oil paint were used to build up accurate skin tones and each hair on all of the figures’ heads was inserted individually by hand over a six week period.
