  • Zac Efron and Supporter

  • Becky

    Does anybody know if Zac is in Las Vegas because there are no pics of him at LAX.

  • Britt

    Okay that is just FREAKY/SCARY looking

  • Zac Efron and Supporter

    This looks northing like Zac.

  • Bradley

    Please that does not look like Zac Efron.

  • lol

    The wax figure is a poor imitation.
    @Becky: Becky the flight to Vegas only takes an 1 hour from LAX so my guess is he wont fly out till later today and be back for tomorrow, or he could just be keeping it on the down low like he did last night at the Gucci Event!

  • V…4ever

    This is so creepy. Zac looks so much better than that. This wax was poorly done. And when I look at that, I see Troy Bolton, not Zac. C’mon, show me a shirless Zac on the beach, not this *I have a stick up my butt* creepy looking thing. Ugh!

  • Cindy

    Zac Zac Zac.

  • Becky


    Thanks for letting me that.

  • Meggg

  • Candy

  • http://jjj miley

  • Ash

  • zanessa_love

    omg.. it scared me!! zac looks so much better!!!!!

  • Lizzie

    omg that wax model is crap!!! the on id Madame tussades in london is brill…got my pic obviously lol

  • athena

    This is a better attempt than the previous one. He still looks a bit scary and plastic, unlike many of the well mastered wax figures at Madame Trussauds. .
    I wonder if Zac will make an appearance to see his figure while in NYC to do the SNL show?

  • lol

    your welcome

  • Susanna

    Creepy and scary for sure. Doesn’t really look like him. Ugh.

  • Katty

    Why is Zac going to Las Vegas?

  • zanessa/jashley/ashnessa

    Wow…it actually looks pretty creepy. …When they made it, it kinda looks like they rushed on the face or something. …But they captured the hair and the body perfectly :D

  • christine x3

  • saudia

    oh my gosh the statue looks like a 40 yr old woman .. pretty scary

  • nicole

    that is just scary! it does not even look like Zac.

  • nicole

    I hope Vaness goes with him to Vegas!

  • Malin

    That’s rubbish. It looks like a 40-year old who got a face surgery. Or, it looks like Zac, but more like … someone who TRIES to look like him. Or something. And with false lashes.
    The smile is the only that is made good.

  • Zac efron fan and supporter

    Zac is my favorite Movie star. Him and Vanessa are the best couple ever.

  • dave

    i have nothing against zac at all.
    but that wax figure of him looks like him fused together with micheal jackson. =/

  • Zac Efron fan and supporter

    Zac will becoming a even bigger star after 17again and Me And Orson Welles.

  • LSP

  • maria

    He is going to Las Vegas because he’s going to be honored at the ShoWest festival tonight.

  • maria

    Sorry, but that’s the worst wax figure ever. Does NOT do Zac justice.

  • marie

  • Shirley

    Is that Michael Jackson? :O

    Other than that, I prefer real Zac!:D So much cuter than M.J!:P

  • Katie


    This is a HORRIBLE wax figure of Zac, because I can tell what
    Zac looks like from a million miles away and this is definintely NOT HIM!

  • Katie

    He looks like he’s got CAT EYES!

    I love Zac, but this is so not him!

  • delsy
