The first anniversary of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs’ death is fast approaching (October 5th), and what better way to celebrate the life of a guy who meant a lot to many by unveiling a brand new wax replica of him.
That’s just what Madame Tussauds did. On Thursday, they unveiled a wax statue of Jobs in Hong Kong – back shirt, glasses, and arms crossed.
Why the cross-armed pose? Here’s Madame Tussauds’s explanation:
“The pose, inspired by photographs taken at the shoot for his famous Fortune Magazine front cover in 2006, shows Jobs with arms casually folded in front of him, head tilted slightly with a warm smile. The professional team of Madame Tussauds had also replicated a pair of Lunor spectacles which is previously custom made for Jobs.”
If you ever wanted to get some sweet up-close shots of Steve Jobs’ stubble, ass, 34-34 Levis, New Balance sneakers, and piercing brown eyes – well, this is as close as you’re going to get.

Imagine what Steve Jobs would think about this wax statue, har har. The wax statue will remain in Hong Kong until November 26th, when it will then travel to Bangkok and Shanghai.[via 9to5Mac]
