Late Pantera Guitarist ‘Dimebag’ Darrell Abbott Immortalized in Canadian Wax Museum

Dimebag Statue
Rock Legends Wax Museum

If you happen to be on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls anytime soon, you may want to check out the Rock Legends Wax Museum during your trip. The tourist attraction boasts a fair number of wax statues, but now metalheads can gather round a new life-sized figure of late Pantera guitarist ‘Dimebag’ Darrell Abbott.

The Rock Legends Wax Museum already contains molds of a bunch of notable musicians including Kurt Cobain, Marilyn Manson, Alice Cooper, James Hetfield, the Sex Pistols’ Johnny Rotten and Sid Vicious and many more. While the majority of the statues are finely crafted, there is a level of creepiness measured by how widely open each statue’s mouth is.

Anyway, the Dimebag wax figure is pretty impressive. Adorned with camouflage shorts, black chucks, a sleeveless shirt, Dime’s trademark red beard and a Dean ‘Dimebolt’ guitar, the beloved shredder now stands in front of a wax Gene Simmons, which is fitting considering Dimebag was a huge KISS fan.

Check out more wax figures at the official Rock Legends Wax Museum website. We just figured out who the statue at the bottom right-hand corner of this page is supposed to be. See if you can, too. [Hint: It’s not Trent Reznor.]
