Celebrating the cinematic rebirth of the character that has created a cult following locally and internationally since it first appeared in manga in the 1950s and on television in the 1960s, the launch of Astro Boy at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong is the result of a successful collaboration between the attraction; Imagi Studios, the movie’s producers; and Tezuka Productions, the licensor of Astro Boy.

Astro Boy’s figure joins the “world famous home of the famous” on September 29, 2009, in the World Premiere section. Guests to Madame Tussauds Hong Kong can also participate in an interactive display where they can literally step intothe boots of Astro Boy and feel as if they are flying over Metro City.

Founder and Chief Creative Officer at Imagi Studios, Francis Kao said, “Bringing everybody’s favourite robot boy back to Hong Kong has been in the works for us for some time now. We are so excited that he will finally be here in cinemas on October 23, and we can share with others the joy he has brought us. Thanks to Madame Tussauds, fans in Hong Kong will be able to get even closer to their hero. I know they are going to love him as much as we do.” via etravelblackboardasia

I've just come back from vacation in Osaka today so I missed the open ceremony and I couldn't see the final product, but I can tell the wax figure is really close to our original design. The crew who made this is really professional and they ask us lots of questions about the details. Thank them so much to making this.
