The latest regional star to be immortalised in wax is 'the Big S'. That's Barbie Hsu Hsi-yuan's nickname among locals to differentiate her from younger TV presenter sister Dee Hsu Hsi-di (they were in a band together called SOS).

Madame Tussauds unveiled the new figure last week ahead of the release of a new Hong Kong sci-fi action movie she stars in with Andy Lau Tak-wah called Future X-Cops. The Taiwanese actress sized up her replica, dressed in the same navy blue special forces suit Hsu wears in the movie, and which she also wore to the wax figure's debut ceremony.

Of course, if the film flops, they'll probably change her costume to something more girly and feminine, which is the Big S's more traditional look.
