- Exactly one year after the death of Peter Alexander, on February 9th 2012, Madame Tussauds Vienna launched his wax figure. Peter Alexander was often named by the visitors as a new wax figure at Madame Tussauds Vienna. Since summer 2011 a team in the studios in London has been working on the creation of the wax figure, particularly with photos and information of close associates, as Peter Alexander had already died at that time. The special feature of the wax figure of Peter Alexander is the original suit and a golden microphone that was provided by the Austrian entertainer, Viktor Gernot.
