madame-tussauds-diy-tony-siragusaI already told you all about what DIY Network has in store for February on Man Caves, but did you really think that was all they had prepared? Tony “The Goose” Siragusa, host of Man Caves will be unveiled as a wax figure in Madame Tussauds´Hall of Wax on February 3rd.

The Super Bowl champion and currently the FOX NFL field analyst, will be the newest addition to its wax collection of celebrities, athletes and world and political leaders.  Partnering with DIY Network, the go-to-destination for home improvement television, Madame Tussauds’ official unveiling will take place at the NFL Experience at the Dallas Convention Center on the Entertainment Stage on Thursday, Feb. 3 at 8-9 p.m. CST.  During that time, Siragusa will be in attendance to check out his wax figure for the first time, take photographs and sign autographs for fans.  The figure will also be present at the NFL Experience at DIY Network’s “Man Caves” booth in Hall C, beginning Tuesday, Feb. 2 until Sunday, Feb. 6.
“I never really thought Madame Tussauds had enough wax for a guy my size or that I’d be in the Hall of Wax,” commented Siragusa. “I’m honored to be a part of it.”

Siragusa sat twice with a team of Madame Tussauds sculptors who took 250 separate measurements of his face and body to ensure every detail of the figure would be accurate.  The measurements were then used to create clay molds of his face and body from which the figure was created.  The entire process from start-to-finish took more than three months to complete and was captured by DIY Network for a half-hour special of “Man Caves,” which is scheduled to air later this year.  In addition, the special will include DIY Network’s upcoming build of a man cave, where Siragusa’s wax figure will reside, at Madame Tussauds’ New York City Times Square location.

“Tony is a larger-than-life personality,” said Bret Pidgeon, general manager of Madame Tussauds New York.  “It’s only fitting that there are now two Tonys in the world.”
