London, United Kingdom, October 20, 2008--Clay head molds of U.S. presidential candidates John McCain (left) and Barack Obama square off at the studios of the Madame Tussauds wax museums in London.

The sculptors working on the likenesses say they have studied the politicians via hundreds of photos and hours of video. Madame Tussauds plans to complete several copies of the life-size wax figures by U.S. Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009, for display in Washington, D.C., New York City, and Las Vegas.
