Artists spent five weeks on his hairstyle, individually inserting each hair by hand.

Madame Tussauds released the first photographs of President-elect Donald Trump's new wax figure Wednesday.

The presidential wax figure dons a blue suit, red tie and Made in America flag lapel pin and will be on display in Washington, D.C., New York, Orlando, Fla., and London.

Trump, who is the first president to already have had a Madame Tussauds wax figure, will be featured in a re-creation of the White House Rose Garden in the D.C. location and in an Oval Office setting in Orlando and London. Twenty artists worked for six months on the figure, with five weeks being spent on replicating Trump's hair by individually placing each strand by hand. The original measurements and photographs of his 1997 replica were "referenced with updated research" to create the new wax Trump.

As THR reported in August, one of Trump's handprint impressions from 1997 — when a team visited his office to take measurements — is on a plaque on the wall of the New York Madame Tussauds. His hand measures 7.25 inches, which is below average for a 6-foot-2-inch American adult male. (A 5-foot-10-inch average American adult male has an average hand size of 7.44 inches).

When asked Wednesday what Trump's hand measurements are for the new figure, a rep for Madame Tussauds told The Hollywood Reporter, "Unfortunately, we do not share our measurements as these are taken confidentially."

The rep declined to answer whether the measurements had changed from those of the previous figure, saying only that "the figure is adjusted to represent Trump currently."
