“It’s amazing,” Cooper says as he looks at his figure closely. “There’s even razor stubble. I used to think I had salt and pepper hair. Seeing this, I realize I have no pepper left.”

Cooper sat for more than three hours with artists, who took more than 250 measurements and images of the journalist earlier this year. It took an additional three months to craft the figure. It's exact all the way down to its fashion sense -- Cooper even donated the stylish Ralph Lauren suit to his wax twin.
