Madame Tussauds New York and Midtown Comics will unveil Samuel L. Jackson’s wax figure as Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury on this week at New York Comic Con. The official unveiling will take place Thursday at the Midtown Comics booth.
Madame Tussauds artists worked closely with Samuel L. Jackson to create his spot-on wax figure when it launched in 2000. More recently, it reportedly took three months for a team of studio artists to transform Jackson’s figure into Nick Fury, replicating his distinctive look with a custom-made long leather trench coat and eye patch.
Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury will go on display at Madame Tussauds New York starting October 14. The character, who made a cameo appearance last week on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., is expected to appear next in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
