Robert Pattinson's likeness has caused a tizzy among adherents, with many crying foul. Madame Tussauds unveiled the Twilight star's wax figure this week in England and his synthetic apparition hasn't exactly gone down with some fans who say the full-body R-Patz doesn't resemble the real-life actor.

The suited up waxed Robert Pattinson took four months and $240,000 to make. Pricey for sure, but that's barely 1% of the $25 million the living, breathing, British passport-holding Pattinson reportedly made for his Twilight finale, Breaking Dawn - Part 2.

Nevertheless, the eternal Pattinson did bring fans out of the - uh - wood-work when it had its official unveiling in the U.K. resort town of Blackpool where it will be staying until the end of November.

Madame Tussauds had to hire extra security to protect the statue as hundreds of fans queued up to see it. Many were disappointed though by the likeness.

A recent vote by a fan site had a 65% thumbs down on the Wax-Patz. Still, it should be a top draw. It will be making a worldwide tour after its Blackpool debut.

And what do you think?
