Madame Tussauds just unveiled a figure of Patrick Swayze to add to the famed wax museum's collection.

The figure portrays Swayze from a scene from his hit 1980s film "Dirty Dancing."

The late actor is shown as dancer Johnny Castle, balancing himself on a log.

Swayze's widow Lisa, who posed with the figure, said it reflects her husband's spirit and what his role was all about.

Swayze also starred in such films as "Ghost" and "Road House."

He was 57 when he died in 2009 from pancreatic cancer.
