Madame Tussauds gives sneak peek of Stephen Colbert's wax head

Madame Tussauds D.C.

Stephen Colbert's head gets the wax treatment from Madame Tussauds.

Who's honoring Stephen Colbert now? Why, Madame Tussauds, of course.

Yes, finally, the waxy shrine that "The Colbert Report's" eponymous host's mind deserves is here, and the go-to celebrity immortalizers have offered up a sneak peek at Stephen's most notable asset. 

Namely, that big head of his.

Madame Tussauds Monday gave fans a sneak peek of its soon-to-be revealed wax figure of the fake newsman's noggin, showing off the sculpted-clay mold ahead of the figure's full Friday unveiling. 

Come the week's end, Stephen's complete wax likeness will be loosed upon the Colbert (and non-Colbert) nation, with the satirist himself on hand to show off his form, which will be outfitted in clothes donated from his own wardrobe, including suit, tie, shirt, cuff links, socks, shoes and lapel pin (clearly no detail is too small for the Colbert touch). 

Ultimately, his doppelgnger will be seated behind a desk in a replica set of "The Colbert Report." As if we needed more proof that Colbert was a national treasure.
