Default William Shatner gets immortalized as a wax figure...

I'm surprised that no one has brought this piece of news over here yet... If it's already been discussed somewhere, I apologize. I did a forum search but came up empty.

Curiously enough, they didn't portray him as he was in TOS but rather in The Wrath of Khan. See video and pictures:

Love your avatar, by the way. Phlox is my favourite doctor, although if I were a captain and I could choose whichever doctor I want, I'd have to go with the EMH simply because he's a walking encyclopedia of universal medicine.

Is it just me or does the waxwork look nothing like him? Plus, it's taller than he is. Do you think he's shrinking?

I think the resemblance is pretty good and for the record, most people do shrink as they age. Has something to do with bone density or something like that.

Thanks, nice to see another Phlox fan.

About the WaxShat's height, perhaps someone wanted it to be "bigger than life".

I'm with you- I don't think that's a very good resemblance. Then again, it looks better than Shatner, so I doubt if he'd complain.
