Mike Tyson Immortalized In Wax By Madame Tussauds Las Vegas

Boxing icon Mike Tyson recently came face-to-face with his wax twin, when he unveiled the world's first Tyson wax figure at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.

Phil Collins' "In The Air Tonight" played as the curtain dropped, revealing Tyson's figure, which is modeled his memorable appearance in the hit film, The Hangover.

According to Madame Tussauds, Tyson donated the figure's black slacks, white collared short, crocodile shoes and his "favorite" herringbone and houndstooth jacket.

He'll now permanently be on display inside the attraction's The Hangover Experience and positioned right next to his beloved tiger, forever trapped inside of the bathroom.

It took 20 artists nearly six months to create the figure, which was sculpted in clay by hand and then covered in a plaster cast.
