To mark the first anniversary of his death, Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum will reveal a new wax figure of Steve Jobs on Thursday.

The co-founder of Apple Inc and brain behind the iPod, iPhone and iPad will be portrayed in his trademark relaxed style, wearing a black cotton turtle neck, Levi 501 jeans and New Balance trainers.

The pose, inspired by photographs taken at the shoot for his famous Fortune Magazine front cover in 2006, shows Jobs with arms casually folded in front of him, head tilted slightly with a warm smile.

The professional team of Madame Tussaud's had also replicated a pair of Lunor spectacles which is previously custom made for Jobs.

According to a release, the wax figure cost about $193,000 to make.

The figure will remain at the Historical and National Heroes attraction of Madame Tussaud's Hong Kong during 27 September to 26 November 2012, before traveling on to Madame Tussaud's Bangkok and then Madame Tussaud's Shanghai.

It took the Madame Tussauds team about 3 months to complete the figure.
