Japanese Company Sells Limited Edition Daft Punk Toys
In commemoration Daft Punk’s 2013 album Random Access Memories, Japanese manufacturer Medicom Toy has designed versions of their Be@rbrick toys after the French house duo’s likeness.
The toys are modeled after the classic Be@rbrick template, which looks like a giant LEGO man with a rigid teddy bear head, but are painted to resemble the duo’s signature helmets as well as the tuxedos they wore in much of the album’s promotional materials. The toys are available in both 100% and 400% sizes - running the rough equivalent of $29 and $135 USD, respectively - but a blurb on Medicom’s website reads, “We will not accept the order from outside of Japan, and will not deliver this abroad. (sic)”
The toys sold to locations outside of Japan through Hypebeast until the online retailer ran out of stock, but several are still available on eBay and other sources.
