Robert Irwin has posed an intriguing question to his fans: Is the world prepared to have two of him around?

The query came as part of the conservationist’s announcement that he is in the process of getting the Madame Tussauds treatment.

As Irwin revealed, he is becoming “the youngest ever Australian” to have a wax figure made in their likeness for inclusion in Madame Tussauds’ Sydney location.

“My sitting is complete, they’ve got my dimensions, and now the Madame Tussaud’s experts are hard at work creating me in wax,” Irwin wrote on a Friday, April 26 Instagram post. “The countdown is on…But, is the world ready for two Robert Irwins?? 😂”

Madame Tussauds Sydney also teased its newest wax figure project on social media, writing earlier this week on Instagram, “Crikey! It's a Robert Irwin wax figure.” While sharing some behind-the-scenes footage from Irwin’s sitting, the wax museum said it is “so excited to welcome Robert into the Madame Tussauds Sydney family.”

In the footage , which Irwin also shared on Instagram, the 20-year-old posed while holding a camera and staying still for head and teeth measurements. He also plunged his palm into a liquid green substance, presumably so that molds of his hands could be made, and waited as the museum’s artists color-matched his skin tone and eye color.

Many of Irwin’s fans left comments on his post to share in his excitement for the forthcoming wax statue.

“The world could definitely use an extra Irwin,” one person wrote on Instagram as another agreed, writing, “The more Robert Irwins, the better (and merrier)!”

“I think the world would be better if we could have 100 of you,” another fan said.

Others couldn’t help but offer humorous suggestions for what the sculptors should add to his wax twin, how it might be used and what the final statue should be called.

“Are they gonna add some type of creature on your shoulder? Cuz that’d be cool, like an iguana or somethin,” one fan suggested.

“Can we call them the Robert IrTwins?” another fan joked.

“Imagine all the pranks you could pull…” one person slyly hinted.
