Colin Thomas, General Manager of Madame Tussauds Hollywood remarked “At Madame Tussauds, our figures represent icons who have made a significant impact on our culture. That perfectly describes Selena. Her influence has transcended generations and her passionate fans continue to be inspired by her to this day. We recognize this and in response, we are proud to join her fans in celebrating her legacy by immortalizing her.”
“On behalf of our family we would like to express a huge amount of gratitude to Madame Tussauds in creating such an amazing lifelike wax figure of our beloved Selena. This is yet another step in making sure that her legacy lives on and that her fans new and old can appreciate her as a person, an artist and one whom we can all identify with,” said Suzette Arriaga, Selena’s sister.
The Selena figure is valued at approximately $350,000. If the outfit looks familiar, it’s because it’s a recreation from Selena’s concert held at the Memorial Coliseum on Feb 7, 1993.
