To coincide with the release of SPECTRE in the UK on 26 October 2015, the line-up of Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan and Craig will appear at the London attraction for a limited time only, before embarking on a tour of Madame Tussauds’ worldwide.
This unique experience 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 costume. 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 kind of information we can gather at a sitting is hugely beneficial, even at a different time period to the figure we are creating,” commented Stephen Mansfield, one of the principle sculptors on the project. “George was extremely entertaining and generous and we gathered an entire catalogue of measurements, photographs and footage. We are using those along with references from the film to create what we hope will be an authentic and lifelike figure.”
All six Bonds will be unveiled on 17 October for a limited time only, before they go on a tour of Madame Tussauds’ worldwide.
