Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is well on his way to becoming a life-sized action figure.

Not really, but we’re nerds, and that’s how we prefer to think of the prospect of Madame Tussauds’ waxperts immortalizing a person. Woz’s statue is set for an unveiling later this month, and the museum has published some great footage and pictures of the subject’s sitting, which included a lot of photographs and measurements as well as a healthy dose of green gloop.

Check it out below.

“I don’t know how I’m going to feel when I come face-to-face with it,” Wozniak says in the video. “I’m probably going to have an immense rush of pride and maybe even chills.”

Wozniak clearly had a blast at the sitting, and Madame Tussauds has posted some really cool pictures, both on- and off-topic.

We understand, but we still find it a bit disconcerting that Madame Tussauds is packing a janitor’s keyring’s worth of hair samples.

Tussauds will reveal the waxy likeness on March 19 at the first-ever Silicon Valley Comic Con. Afterward, Wax Woz will have a permanent home in the San Francisco museum’s tech exhibit next to the Steve Jobs figure. And that’s just about the sweetest thing we’ve heard all day.
