Life-Sized Wax Figures of Hollywood Stars From The 1980s and 1990s

quote [ In May 2009, the Hollywood Wax Museum sold a batch of life-sized wax figures at auction. Bidders vied for wax effigies of musicians, athletes, Hollywood A-listers, Jesus and stagehands. Michael Jordan’s wax figure sold for US$2,250; Charlie Chaplin as seen in The Gold Rush sold for $2,000; and Marilyn Monroe from The Seven Year Itch went for $4,250; The highest price was for a waxwork of Tom Cruise, which sold for $4,250. ]

Like beautifully-gowned wax figures on display

Holy crap, it's like the artist asked if they wanted them creepy, and was fired in favor of someone who did not need to ask.

"Marilyn Monroe from The Seven Year Itch went for $4,250; The highest price was for a waxwork of Tom Cruise, which sold for $4,250"

Uh.. how can Tom Cruise be the highest price if it went for the same as the immediately listed Marilyn Monroe?
Am I missing something?
