Pics after the cut!
This one looks like something you'll find in a Madame Tussaud's, but it's actually a life-sized plastic figure, not a wax sculpture.
The model is teenage professional golfer Ryo Ishikawa who's one of the most popular athlete in Japan at the moment. His life-sized figure is here to promote his 1/6 scale figure which is to be released this autumn by Bandai.
