Steve Jobs Gets Waxed

Famous wax museum remembers the late Apple co-founder



    Nearly a year ago, the world lost Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs. Fans will no doubt remember the event as the anniversary of his death approaches, but Madam Tussauds Hong Kong, is already on it.

    The world famous world of wax, will be releasing a creepily lifelike wax figure of the Apple man later this month, says iPhone Savior.

    The statue will feature Jobs in his usual outfit and glasses, and is based off of pictures taken during a 2006 Fortune magazine shoot, Madame Tussauds says.

    According to the LA Times, the figure was commissioned by Gabor Bojar, the founder of Graphicsoft, a Hungarian company that develops software for architects. Bojar said Jobs gave his company support in its early days.

    Wax Jobs is costing HK$1,500,000 to create and three months to sculpt.
