Jeremy Lin Gets Madame Tussauds wax figure, patched things up with his mom

 

It’s good to know that Jeremy’s mom wasn’t actually upset with the pie-in-the-face prank for her birthday since it’s a family tradition. (It’s unclear if Mama Lin approved this message. We saw her slapping reaction is real, Jeremy πŸ˜‰ ) ).

Celebrating her son’s wax figure being unveiled in the SF Madame Tussauds Musem is certainly an icing on the cake πŸ™‚ Nice damage control, Jeremy!

  • The real Jeremy Lin and his family/friends admired the wax version.

  • The Beijing wax figure had Rockets jersey. I wonder if they would change it to the Lakers one.

    Probably not since there’s Yao in there too.

  • Dina Yuen, Asian-Fusion.com Girl will have a feature on Jeremy.

    I see he hunched his back a bit. His defense is GOOD!

    He’s touching the arm… probably thinking “it’s bigger in real life” ;P

  • Ehm, someone looked like she didn’t want to be there?

  • or he’s thinking “Hm, so that’s how thin my arm looked like before it got slapped by Mom repeatedly?” lol

  • blubell

    I will gladly replace her but I’d rather be the girl in the middle… she is bold, wrapping her hands around Jeremy’s arm. How dare she… LOL

  • Someone is turning green with jealousy .. LOL πŸ™‚
    BTW, are you planning to candidate for the next round of Jeremy’s future GF voting?

  • blubell

    Now that he is in LA, I have a better chance of stalking… I mean meeting him. LOL.
    I once saw Kobe at Coffee Bean so I’m sure I’ll bump into Jeremy one of these days.

  • He is truly an iconic athlete. A small statue is cool and a life sized wax figure is even more epic,

    As for the wax model, it seems like the body is a bit small. The head is a bit big. His real life shoulders are wider in proportion to the rest of his body. Could have more facial expression. The wrist band is a nice touch though.

    After scrutinizing it closely, the wax statue is indeed missing some of his moles..

    FAIL in my book!

    Good luck….lol
