Meet ALL SIX James Bonds this October!
- Friday 16th October 2015
We've revealed wax figures of ALL SIX James Bonds, with five completely new wax 007s joining our existing figure of Daniel Craig. 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 here in London for SIX WEEKS ONLY, before embarking on a tour of Madame Tussauds locations worldwide on December 1.
Created in close collaboration with EON Productions, the set will give you an opportunity to stand side-by-side with all six Bonds - in the same place, at the same time. See how you measure up to each 007, pose with your 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, whilst 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.
Our sculptors 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 twenty 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.
General Manager here at Madame Tussauds London, Edward Fuller, is delighted to be hosting the line- up on the first leg of the world tour. He commented: “We are delighted to be revealing this exciting line-up first in London and what better timing than the week before the 24th installment of this incredible film franchise gets its world premiere here. Fans have always loved getting up close to Madame Tussauds’ Bond figures but now they can meet ALL six at the same time! What an incredible opportunity! We know they are going to love measuring up to their personal favourite 007, whether it's the Bond they grew up with, the first they saw in the cinema or the current incarnation they’ll see in SPECTRE. One thing is for sure, whoever your favourite Bond is - you can meet them here in wax. But people do need to hurry as they will be leaving London for Madame Tussauds attractions in the USA at the end of November”.
