Madame Tussauds London are joining in the biggest Chinese New Year celebrations outside Asia, with a special visit from two of China’s most famous martial arts masters!

The wax likenesses of Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee will be making the journey to the capital from Madame Tussauds in Hong Kong and Shanghai. They will arrive in time to welcome in The Year of the Horse on January 31st.

Meet Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee at Madame Tussauds!

Lee’s wax figure sports his trademark yellow and black all in one and is poised ready to spring into action. Chan is dressed casually in a denim outfit and in a more relaxed pose.

Madame Tussauds London visitors will be able to pose alongside these two legends until mid-April 2014, the perfect opportunity to get that all-important profile picture.

A day of celebrations will also be held on Saturday February 1st, with regular performances of the high-energy traditional Lion Dance, as well as customary decorations and music.

The historic Madame Tussauds building will be lit up in lucky red to mark the occasion, and visitors can even take a peek into the year ahead with a free fortune cookie!
