I like how Han Solo looks like he is from the 18th century.

Is that Elton John playing the guitar next to Princess D?

To be fair there were much worse waxworks at Great Yarmouth than Rene or any of these. I'll dig some out and post them if somebody doesn't beat me to it.

I have actually been to the Barcelona museum, way back in 2003. Remember having a good chuckle at Tonty Blair and Mother Theresa amongst many others.

I thought Dirty Dancing man was Fox Mulder, not sure why I assumed the other was Scully. Maybe thinking Scully was undercover or something. Her hair looks nothing like Scully's but then half the haircuts look nothing like the hair of the people they are meant to be.

Ahh Louis Tussauds House of Wax in Great Yarmouth. I would pay a visit every time I holidayed in the resort paired with a stroll up Regent Road (where the place was situated obvs) which my wife always called the street of tat as it housed some of the towns cheapest and tackiest outlets. The setting was perfectly in keeping with the waxworks, which I learned to enjoy after reading Bollocks to Alton Towers by Robin Halstead, Jason Hazeley, Alex Morris, and Joel Morris. The street was a paean to seaside garishness with the pier at one end (Jim Davidson anyone?) and a Wetherspoons at the top end. My faves were the Victoria and David Beckham outfitted by House of Leather directly opposite the attraction...
     

Not a bad Beckham but not sure about Victoria. Then there was a Cliff Richard that he could have sued the makers for misrepresenting him...



A particular favourite was a tribute to the RAF that featured a waxwork that seemed to have been a John Cleese that got rejected as being poor even by Great Yarmouth standards so got repurposed as some Wing Commander. If anyone has a pic of this one I would be forever grateful.

If you could pick four dinner party guests... actually, is that supposed to be Winston Churchill on guitar? And who's the guy on the other end? The Ayatollah or some famous Orthodox Christian?

The guitarist is supposed to be Andres Segovia, I think.

I think that's Archbishop Makarios at left.

Ah right. Googled him and he looks familiar.

Btw, with this thread, Welsh Police Horse and Jet Ski Cowell, we've had some start to the year!
