You’re not seeing double! Lady Gaga (right) and a life-size doll of the flamboyant pop star are all the rage in Tokyo.

Lady Gaga is no longer one of a kind.

The pop star unveiled life-size “Gagadolls,” bearing her blond likeness and wearing her flamboyant outfits, at an event in Tokyo Sunday.

The silicon doll has Gaga’s “Poker Face” and, in place of a heart, messages and music by the singer emit from the replica’s chest.

“They look so much like me,” the 27-year-old star gushed to the manufacturers, according to The Japan Times. “I respect your art … and the detail you put into the dolls.”

The dolls were inspired by 'Artpop,' which sold 18,109 physical copies in Japanese on its release day.

The dolls were inspired by her new “Artpop” album, which shot to No. 1 on the charts in Japan, according to the Times. The figure is the brainchild of Orient Industry in Tokyo, a company that specializes in synthetic “love dolls.”

The prototypes are not yet available for sale — but that didn’t stop the musician’s pals from taking pictures with their fake friend.

“They were so excited to take pictures of me with the dolls and then all of a sudden the dolls took over,” she said. “And the dolls were the most important thing in the room. And this is a beautiful thing.”
