Heartthrob Robert Pattinson hits Australian Shores until November - Don't miss out!

Much to the delight of R-Patz fans around the nation, the British heartthrob’s wax figure will be featured just in time for the school holidays (Sept 22) and will be in good company amongst the other A-list Hollywood hunks including Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt and Hugh Jackman.

In the lead up to Robert Pattinson’s much anticipated arrival, frenzied fans entered an online competition for the chance to get up close with the hunky Brit’s wax figure before anyone else in Australia.

Prize winner Tamara Henry of Penrith was lucky enough to meet and kiss R-Patz on her 19th birthday, having won the competition off the back of her huge R-Patz collection. “I can’t believe how lifelike the wax figure is, it is just dead on, and although I know I probably won’t get to meet him face to face, I can give this version a hug, so in some ways it is even better,” Tamara said.

Tamara and runner up Ashlee Porter both proclaimed their passion for the star and brought along some of their R-Patz collection which includes posters, bedspreads, lamps, blankets, dolls, shirts, jewellery and even a cardboard cut-out!

R Patz’s wax figure took over four months to complete at a cost of $220,000. Looking suave in a smart tuxedo jacket, shirt and tie as he appeared at this year’s Golden Globes, Robert Pattinson’s amazingly lifelike figure also wears smart slim fitting jeans and his trademark sultry expression – giving him a sophisticated look that will no doubt leave guests at Madame Tussauds in awe at the newest addition to the attraction.

Just like most celebrity whirlwind visits to Australia, the wax figure of the Brit born A-lister is in Sydney for a limited time – R-Patz will be available for kissing, hugging and general swooning in Madame Tussauds Sydney until November only.
