I would venture to guess that only a few elite figures warrant the “multiple wax figures of you in the same wax museum” status.  Skinny/Fat Elvis, short/long hair Beatles, adorable tyke/ghoul Michael Jackson.  I put forth that the Olsen Twins should be the same way!  By same way, of course, I mean the adorable tyke/ghoul model. And are we supposed to believe for a second that these are actually distinct wax modes of Mary Kate AND Ashley, rather than a simple recasting of the same model?  Please!  I know corner cutting when I see it!!!

Speaking of corner cutting, I will now do the same, as this picture was just a flimsy excuse to post this montage of Michelle Tanner “You Got it Dude” moments and Stephanie Tanner “How Rude” moments.


Also, just to capitalize entirely on the search traffic from that above post:

Wax Miley Cyrus!


Wax Carrie Underwood!


Butter Shawn Johnson!

    And I watched the whole montage. Be there a wax John Stamos?

    Butter Shawn Johnson?

  • 3 Mike Finley on Apr 15, 2009 at 8:42 am

    Ashley is clearly the one on the left.
    I mean come on, Connor. Re-cast indeed…have you not eyes?!

    …Possibly the one on the right…

    I am the long-lost third Olsen twin, Manly-Kate.

    On my list of things I’d do with a five-foot-tall quantity of butter, I have to say sculpting it into the shape of a teenage girl gymnast isn’t at the top of the list.

    Though to be honest, it is on the first page.

    Aside from her apparently serious elbow condition, Wax Miley Cyrus actually looks pretty good!

  • 7 jfe on Apr 15, 2009 at 9:32 am

    Has anyone ever thought about a wax Joel and the ‘Bots? Mike and the ‘Bots? Wax Fran in the Pan? Butter Brain Guy? Etc.?

  • 8 AJ on Apr 15, 2009 at 9:33 am

    Not only is this bad wax but they arn’t skinny enough for starters.

  • 9 Lord Bob on Apr 15, 2009 at 9:34 am

    Wax robots? God, that sounds like a horror movie concept.

    “In the not-too-distant future… next Sunday A-DIE…”

    (rejected alternate joke: “I thought Mike was made of wax!”)

    Yes has anyone tried to wax a robot? Mike could be a bacon butter combo. Ok are we all now going to obsess over what can become a wax figure? Thanks a lot Brit!

    Any skinnier and maybe the wax would just keep running.

  • 12 Rob on Apr 15, 2009 at 12:14 pm

    The Olsen statues look like Angelina Jolie in Beowulf. Just stating that for the record.

  • 13 Remmie Barrow on Apr 15, 2009 at 1:01 pm

    I have always had a bad feeling about the Olsen twins…Just something about them that just did not feel right.

  • 14 john on Apr 15, 2009 at 1:07 pm

    Those don’t look anything like the current Olsen twins. Maybe in 10-15 years, but I don’t think anyone’s expecting them to live that long. Celebrity death pool, anyone?

  • 15 Dave Lewis on Apr 15, 2009 at 2:08 pm

    Helen Hunt and her clonus-for-parts?

    Wax Kylie Minogue looks happy:

    I certainly hope “Wax Miley Cyrus” isn’t being used in the imperative sense.

    Err…same goes for “Butter Shawn Johnson.”

    Had said sculptures been made out of stone, the situation would be even more confusing. I’m just glad nobody’s figured out how to make sculptures out of milk.

  • 17 Margoo on Apr 15, 2009 at 7:33 pm

    Are you SURE that’s the wax sculpture of Miley Cyrus, not just the real Miley outside Madame Tussaud’s?

    I mean, there probably isn’t much difference, but it might be an important distinction.

  • 18 Tony on Apr 15, 2009 at 8:28 pm

    I think the Mary-Kate and Ashley wax statues look more like young Diane Sawyers…

  • 19 randommanthefirst on Apr 15, 2009 at 9:20 pm

    If you had only a few more inches of butter, you could make a sculpture of Nastia Liukin, just make sure you cool it properly to maintain a lifelike frigidity.

  • 20 Tony on Apr 16, 2009 at 8:31 am

    Here’s scary wax Lindsay Lohan:

    as opposed to the standard model, I guess…


  • 21 epobirs on Apr 16, 2009 at 8:55 am

    Is it bad that the wax Olsen Twins looks much healthier and more lifelike than the real ones?

  • 22 Michael Adams on Apr 27, 2009 at 5:11 pm

    Wax Swayze from Road House – for sale!

  • 23 jambutterpenis on Nov 26, 2010 at 4:01 am

    i think the olsen twins are really sexy!
