|Pop culture fans can take a photo with Steven Spielberg at Big Apple Comic Con; or at least with his museum-quality wax likeness. The Stephen Spielberg figure will be provided by Madame Tussauds New York for the entire day on Saturday, October 17, 2009 at Big Apple Comic Con. |
"It's exciting for a local landmark like Madame Tussauds New York to partner with us by bringing such an iconic pop culture figure to our event. I know the fans are going to get a kick out of posing with the creative force behind so many of their favorite films," said Gareb Shamus, CEO of New York-based Wizard Entertainment and producer of Big Apple Comic Con.
The Steven Spielberg figure will be on display Saturday, October 17 at Big Apple Comic Con. Fans are encouraged to interact with the figure, just like at Madame Tussauds New York. There is no additional charge for snapping your photo with the Steven Spielberg display.
"Being on location at Big Apple Comic Con gives us a chance to bring a sample of the Madame Tussauds experience to fans that can appreciate not only the artistic talent of the piece, but also its interactive and entertaining value," said Tom Kovacic, Promotions Manager, Madame Tussauds New York.
