Making Yoda Out Of Wax Isn't Easy

Making Yoda Out of Wax Isn't Easy

Madame Tussauds, the famous wax museum, is bringing Yoda to life -- er, wax -- for an upcoming Star Wars exhibit. If you thought it was easy to make a Yoda wax statue, then you are a crazy person. It's not!

Via New Launches, Madame Tussauds uploaded a promo video to YouTube. And while most of the video is a boring PR hard-sell, there are interesting behind-the-scenes bits, showing a team of artists and a team of paintbrushes.

      Yes, some of us cant access youtube at work

        I mean, they don't really show anything more than a static image would have shown. They are so short that nothing really happens in them.
