Nintendo has today announced that Mario has become the first ever videogame character to be honored with a figure at the Hollywood Wax Museum. The museum features wax figures of around 180 stars including the likes of Tom Hanks, Michael Jordan, Cher, Marilyn Monroe, Brad Pitt, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Mario statue has replaced those of The Matrix stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss in the museum's lobby.

"With four new Mario games in stores right before the holidays, this truly is the Season of Mario," said George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president for marketing and corporate communications. "Mario's induction into the Hollywood Wax Museum further establishes his importance as a pop-culture icon."
