The Wax figures are wax sculptures that come to life when the moon is waxing. They appear in "Headhunters." Grunkle Stan stole them from a garage sale and used them as attractions in the Mystery Shack. When people stopped coming to see them, Grunkle Stan locked them away. Soos, Dipper, and Mabel discover the room they are kept in. Mabel creates a wax figure of Grunkle Stan to replace one that was melted while in storage.

The twins soon find the figure of Grunkle Stan decapitated and find out that the other wax figures were the culprits. When the wax figures try to kill the twins, the twins destroy them, with the exception of Wax Larry King whose head is still intact and roams the vents of the Mystery Shack.
