Madame Tussauds Orlando has rolled out the welcome mat for Po, the lovable Panda turned Dragon Warrior from the successful animated movie trilogy Kung Fu Panda. Po’s figure will be on display starting today, the opening day of the theatrical release of Kung Fu Panda 3. Interestingly, Po’s shorts were made from three types of silk and a jacquard fabric, which were specially dyed to create 10 different color patches in the style of his animated outfit in the films.
Here are some more fun facts about the new figure, which can be found on display inside the attraction:
- Po’s figure weighs 160 pounds
- More than 75 square feet of synthetic black fur and 45 square feet of synthetic white fur were used to create Po’s figure
- Po’s eyes are 4.5 inches in diameter
- His fist is almost a foot long
