And today they got a high profile new member of the waxwork crew:

They’ve got the stance, the suit, the clothes and the beard pretty much down.

Waxworks are a difficult thing to get right, and the museum explained the process:

a new and innovative artistic and technical process that involved 3D scanning in conjunction with wax sculpting was used to create an uncannily lifelike wax character

High profile company.

It’s impossible to know what McGregor himself would think of it, but one famous quote of his does come to mind:

Next stop for him after the fight with Floyd Mayweather will surely be the National Waxwork Museum for an up close look at his doppelganger.
