March 14, 1995: During a break in filming for GoldenEye, Pierce Brosnan had a sitting with the crew at Madame Tussauds for their autumn display in London. At the end of the session, Brosnan writes in Madame Tussauds' book of fame: "You missed one measurement. But, ah, never mind...."
It looks like they replaced slightly boozy but still very recognizable Pierce with well - just click on the link. Though as bad as it is it could be much much worse. The title of the article is not an exaggeration, it's an understatement.

For your eyes only: Madame Tussauds assembles a team of James Bonds Thursday, October 15, 2015 - 03:38 pm
What do you get when you put six 007s together? The answer isn’t 42: it’s a roomful of waxwork James Bonds.
Madame Tussauds London has revealed wax figures of all the actors who have played James Bond, with five completely new waxworks joining the incumbent 007 Daniel Craig.
As fans prepare for the release of Spectre on October 26, Daniel is joined by ex-Bonds Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan.
They will appear at the tourist attraction for six weeks, before embarking on a tour of Madame Tussauds locations across the world on December 1.
Daniel, Sean, Roger, Timothy and Pierce have previously been made into waxworks, meaning Madame Tussauds already had their measurements – but it was a first time for George, star of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969), who modelled for the museum’s artists in Los Angeles in February.
According to Madame Tussauds, the figures took four months for a team of 20 artists to complete, at a cost of £150,000 each. Each hair on all of the figures’ heads was inserted individually by hand, a process which took six weeks.

The Bonds have been posed in dinner suits based on the original costumes and designed by Oscar-winning costume designer, Lindy Hemming.
General manager of Madame Tussauds London, Edward Fuller, said Bond fans could look forward to “measuring up to their personal favourite 007, whether it’s the Bond they grew up with, the first they saw in the cinema or the current incarnation they’ll see in Spectre”.
He added: “One thing is for sure, whoever your favourite Bond is – you can meet them here in wax.”
