In celebration of the release of Spectre later this year, The Madame Tussauds Museum of London will be featuring a special exhibit that will include waxworks of all six James Bonds, together for he first time ever. While a wax work of Daniel Craig as James Bond has been on display there for some time, starting October 17 he will be joined for a brief time by mock-ups of Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, and Pierce Brosnan. While each of the previous Bond actors are getting new version of themselves sculpted, it also marks the first time George Lazenby has ever been immortalized in such a way, and what better way than as 007, right?
Two years ago there were rumors that swirled about claiming all six actors would gather together on-stage at the Oscars in order to pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of James Bond’s film legacy, but of course those just proved to be rumors. While never truly confirmed, one can only assume that Sean Connery’s long-documented hatred towards the franchise (and the Broccoli family in particular), squashed any hopes of that ever happening. But hey: at least we can look forward to seeing all of the Bond, at their peak Bond-ness, together at a wax museum in London. Next best thing, right?

Those in the London area may want to jump on the chance to see this exhibit, as it probably won’t last too long. All Bonds—except for Craig—are expected to ship off to different Madam Tussauds parlors around the world afterward.
Be sure to check out Spectre when it releases in theaters (or cinemas) in the UK on October 26, and then in the United States on November 6. Also let us know if you are in the UK area and plan to take a trip to check out this historic gathering.
