Star Trek Weekend at Madame Tussaud

If you're in L.A. November 5-8, here's a coupon to get $8 off admission to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. Get there quick before all the charm & hotness melts the Kirk figure!

Note that the coupon says STAR TREK THE EXHIBITION (still no punctuation but now they can afford ALL-CAPS!) is also in L.A. Hey, LAHB stringers, go forth and report back! How is this different from what's in San Jose?

From NBC-LA:
Few fictional characters have mastered the still pose like Captain Kirk. The hand-on-chin thinking pose. The listening-to-Spock-incredulously pose. The quiet-sitting-and-staring-at-the-Klingon-Bird-of-Prey pose.

So that the "Star Trek" man is getting honored at Madame Tussauds Hollywood with his own figure makes perfect sense. We just want to know exactly which pose Tussauds opted to go with, since there are so many iconic stances to choose from.

The Hollywood show is fairly different from the San Jose show: different sets, different objects/costumes. Both shows have a bridge, but San Jose has Kirk's bridge while Hollywood has Picard's. The other sets are different as well. Both shows have costumes and props from the latest movie, but they are different props and costumes from different characters. So all in all--go see both!

(disclosure: I worked on installing both shows. :)
