Last month Madame Tussauds asked you, the American public, which tech icon should be the next to be depicted in wax. Competition was stiff among the ten nominees, with everyone from Elon Musk to George Lucas in the running. But the American public has decided, nay, demanded: WE MUST HAVE A WAX WOZ!

Wax Woz will join Wax Steve Jobs and Wax Mark Zuckerberg at Madame Tussauds’ San Francisco location sometime in late 2015. It will take two to three months for sculptors to complete the wax-ification process, starting with Wozniak holding completely still for a three-hour sitting session while 250 measurements are taken.

The non-wax Woz issued this statement via Madame Tussauds:

“I am incredibly excited to be inducted into the Madame Tussauds family. I remember visiting the London Museum as a kid, and how cool it was to see Mark Knopfler’s figure in wax,” says Wozniak. “I can’t wait to see my figure next to Jobs — it will be just like old times.”

Cue up some “Money for Nothing” in celebration. We love you already Wax Woz!
