Call it Woz 2.0.

Madame Tussauds will unveil a life-size wax figure of Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak on Saturday during his keynote at the Silicon Valley Comic Con at the San Jose Convention Center.

The wax museum said a team of sculptors and artists spent more than two hours to capture Wozniak’s likeness, taking some 250 measurements. Artists in London spent another four months creating the 5-foot-11 statue.

The resulting work will be displayed at Madame Tussauds San Francisco, near Fisherman’s Wharf, where it will be “reunited” with the wax statue of fellow Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

For what it’s worth, the public was asked which Bay Area tech innovator should be immortalized in wax, and Woz got more votes than Tesla founder Elon Musk or Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, according to a spokesperson.
