Fans were treating the wax figures of One Direction members Louis Tomlinson, center, and Liam Payne, second from right, like they would the real thing during an unveiling ceremony at Madame Tussauds in Tokyo on Tuesday, Feb. 11.
Kisses, hugs and even selfies were the order of the day as the British lads managed to hold a pose through it all.

According to the museum, "It no longer does justice either to the star or to the attraction," the New York Post reported.
