What does everyone think of the wax figures of the six wives at Madame Tussauds?

If you have not seen them it's very easy to look up.

I think they all came out very interesting looking but still it's not how I pictured them for some reason.

I saw them at Warwick Castle back in 2009. I thought they were okay, but they are not the best done by Madame Tussauds. Considering they had portraits to work with, I thought the quality of the faces would have been better, but they were still interesting to see!

There are figures of the six wives at Hever Castle as well. They’re not amazing quality, but I seem to remember that the one of Anne Boleyn was quite nicely done.

I like the Anne one; and I think the Jane Seymour one is quite realistic. Not keen on the Katherine Howard one though. I like the Hever wax figure of Anne, it's pretty and I think it shows her elegance.

I think Anne of Cleves is done remarkably well and is my favorite.

I think they look great if your basing their appearences on their portraits alone, I mean the portraits are beautiful don't get me wrong but obviously they look different in person than on paper, right? – Anyways the waxed figures are probably the closest we're gonna get to life size Katherine,Anne,Jane,Anna,Katheryn,&Catherine.

Do they still have the Anne Boleyn speech at the London Dungeon?

It's always bunnies.

^ I didn't know that they had that there…. hmmm….

It's been a long time since I went to Madame Tussauds, Jane Seymour and AOC are my favourites.  Really didn't like the Katherine Howard one, her face was somehow all wrong.  Gorgeous costume she's wearing, though.
