NEW YORK (WFAN) — That new Carmelo Anthony wax figure looks so lifelike…

… GAH!

Visitors to Madame Tussauds were in for a treat Tuesday when the famous wax museum unveiled its likeness of Anthony.

Some were even in for a scare.

The fully-uniformed Knicks star stood eerily still in a shooting position as one patron after another approached the inanimate — or so they thought — figure. One guy even pretended to block the shot before Anthony sprang to life.

“Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey!” yelled the not-so-waxy Anthony, which prompted the speechless man to grab his chest. His female companion, on the other hand, found her voice as she  screamed and flailed about.

“That was probably one of the toughest acting jobs to do,” said the 28-year-old forward. “‘Cause it’s right on the spot.”

Watch it here (hilarity begins at the :53 mark):

No, it’s not “Mannequin 3,” it’s Carmelo Anthony. Give us your reaction to the video in the comments below…
