Jeez, these are terrible. That Curly looks like a cross between Peter Boyle and Skinner from the X-files (Mitch Pileggi). I feel sorry for anyone who paid admission to go to that lame museum.

Looks like they attached someone else's foot to Tyson.

What is up with Tiger's E.T. neck and weird boxy shoulder?

Jerry reminds me of The Master from Buffy.

This is supposed to actually be the Christopher Reeve Superman, why does is look more like Fred Gwynne?


Bruce Springsteen suffers from the same shoulder dislocation as Tiger. Plus he looks more like Michael J Fox in a bad wig than The Boss.



On the other hand, this thing looks more human than the real MJ.


Poor Kate Winslet... it looks more like Kathy Griffin, on a bad day, no less.


"Yeah, I think I'll just take the blue pill, thanks."


Some of them are pretty good, though. The Steven Seagal and Pulp Fiction ones are spot on.

I love this description:
107. Masked Killer from Scream. (Dimensions Films, 1996) This figure was originally Clint Black but converted and fitted with a black hooded robe, black gloves, and signature "Scream" mask.

That Bruce Springstein IS Andy Samberg. I wouldn't question it for a moment.

All of these figures look like very poorly embalmed people who kinda but not really, look like people who are said to look like someone famous...while you're drunk.

When I first saw them, I thought they look as bad as the ones from the Hollywood Wax Museum, then I found out they are from there.

I don't know where to begin with the criticism.
