Trejo sported a navy blue jacket, which was worn on top of a black t-shirt, and a matching pair of pants for the reveal.

The Machete star also wore a silver necklace with a sizable cross pendant, which was also featured on the statue. 

The figure itself was only dressed in a pair of jeans and leather shoes.

The statue also featured an impressive array of fake tattoos that closely mirrored the Spy Kids actor’s own.

The Desperado actor notably took several pictures while holding a machete and posing next to the wax figure. 

According to ABC7, a group of artists spent over half a year constructing and constructing the statue.

The performer also caught up with the news outlet at the event and appeared to be overtaken by the gesture, as he stated: ‘I don’t know what to say.’ 

Trejo later spoke to KTLA following the statue’s unveiling and told the media outlet about his impression of the figure.

The actor noted that ‘it was kind of creepy, but they made him look better than me, so that was cool.’

When asked about his take on the statue’s build, he expressed that the artists who worked on it ‘did really well.’ 

The Blood In Blood Out actor then expressed that he was at a loss for words when asked to speak at the figure’s unveiling. 

‘It was so humbling, and I’m usually pretty good at just winging a speech, but when I saw that I was just, like, tongue tied,’ he stated.

Several figures from the local community were in attendance at the ceremony, including Los Angeles’ mayor, Eric Garcetti.

Trejo also recalled that the governor of California also spoke to him after the unveiling and jokingly noted that he would have normally expected to speak to the official under different circumstances.

‘[Gavin] Newsom called me and said he was sorry he couldn’t make it. You know, the only thing I looked to the governor for was a parole,’ he said.
