Wax models, mannequins, they all creep me out to the max. But I wouldn't mind seeing Beatle wax models! They look pretty neat-looking. Didn't they use some in the Sgt. Pepper album cover? I believe so.

Question? Is there anyone on this site that has actually seen this models?

When I first saw them in London they had them dressed from the 1968 White Album period, but now they've changed back to these.

Yes, and they are AWFUL! Madame Tussauds have them in London and they look nothing like them at all..........................as you can quite clearly see from the above photo! Who ever made George - ugghhhhhh!!!

Are these the same as the others on Sgt. Pepper? They don't look the same but still have that creepy factor.

No. The one's on Pepper were the original ones (before Madame T took precise care on the 'dummies'). They replaced these with the ones I saw and then replaced them with the ones now...........

I'm not sure how much you know about these things, but today if you are going to have a waxwork done (assuming you are still alive of course!) they take every conceivable measurement of your body and many, many photos to get is 'just' right.  In the Beatles' day it was more guesswork....and we see how well they failed!

That sounds a little weird but I think they are wax models on the Sgt. Pepper LP cover.

 

I'd love to see Beatles wax models! That be awesome!

I remember seeing these went I went to London around 1966! They have to be the same ones surely as I went to Madame Tussauds c. 1966 and the Beatles were definitely there.  Blimey, it's just hit me after 44 years that I saw them!
