It’s time for the Cult of Mac to mobilize. Apple co-founder, Segway enthusiast and all-around snuggly bear Steve Wozniak has won many honors and awards over the years, but this could be the greatest one yet: He’s up to be turned into a wax figure at Madame Tussauds!

If you’ve never heard of Madame Tussauds, it’s a world-famous wax museum with a San Francisco branch that is particularly famous for turning Silicon Valley notables like Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg into realistic wax figures.

Madame Tussauds has been taking nominations for new Silicon Valley elites to be immortalized in wax, and Wozniak has been included among the 10 finalists alongside luminaries like Elon Musk, George Lucas, Marissa Mayer, Larry Page and Sheryl Sandberg.

Obviously, Woz is going to need our help if he wants to be immortalized alongside Steve Jobs as a wax figure. So start voting!

Here’s hoping they give Woz a wax Segway while they’re at it.
