Daft Punk is an electronic music duo consisting of French musicians Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (born February 8, 1974) and Thomas Bangalter (born January 3, 1975). Daft Punk reached significant popularity in the late 1990s house movement in France and were met with continued success in the years following. [source: wiki]
In their more visible "Discovery era" years (1999–2004), they appeared as futuristic robots for publicity photo shoots, interviews, live shows and music videos. These suits, engineered by Tony Gardner and Alterian, Inc., sport complicated helmets capable of various LED effects and metallic finger gloves. With the release of "Human After All" (2004–2008), the musical duo's outfits became slightly less complicated by consisting of black leather jacket and pants and simplified versions of the Discovery headgear.
Daft Punk will make a cameo appearance in the upcoming 2010 Disney film "Tron: Legacy".
And from Medicom Toys will come this set of RAH (Real Action Heroes) Daft Punk: Tron Legacy Version 1/6 scale 12-inch figures of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter. Looks most interesting indeed.
Before yesterday, I wasn't sure who they were but now I know a little more than when I started. I learn something new everyday :) This is Medicom Toys Daft Punk 1:6 scale Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, Tron Legacy Version
And this is Medicom Toys Daft Punk 1:6 scale Thomas Bangalter, Tron Legacy Version
Medicom Toys had already released a pair of 1:6 scale Daft Punk figures earlier, in their "Human After All" black leather jacket and pants, and futuristic robot headgear. The Japanese have a thing for robots and robot costumes, and these should do well, especially in Japan.
