{     Daft Punk Mini     }    

http://www.crowndozen.com/main/archives/upload/2006/07/DaftPunkHeidi-thumb.jpgDo you know that line from LCD Soundsytem? Daft Punk is playing in my house, MY house I’ll show you the ropes, kid, show you the ropes Got a bus and a trailer at my house, my house ... All the furniture is in the garage Well daft punk is playing at my house, my house You got to set them up kid, set them up Taken indeed from the song "Daft Punk is playing in my house". What a dream, uh? Super genius home delivery! I just want them here! With me! And guess what I would do once they are here? Yep, that is what those ropes are for: to tie them and make them stay here, forever! Since I am not LCD Soundsystem and since not even James Murphy managed to get Daft Punk in his house for a gig and since playing their cd/vinyl/video is far from enough, something must be done. Ok, I bet this delirium must have gone thru more than one person's head (I do not want to believe me and LCD are the only ones) and Medicom Toys (hey old friend!), trying to cure the insanity the French duo is able to generate, has come up with a partial solution. Drum roll... allow me to introduce the Daft Punk action heroes! The best medication for those with Daft Punk dependecies! The 12 inch figures are a perfect scale reproduction of Tomas and Guy, space helmets included. And that is not even all! The spanky black clothes (with glittery back) the mini genius versions are wearing are designed by Heidi Slimane himself! You know who Heidi Slimane is, right??? The head designer for Dior Homme, the men's fashion undisputable genius, yes him! Just when you started thinking these toys are cool, it turns out they are so hip they just hurt! Obviously this 'detail' has made these 'toys' a super limited and collectable item and a pricey one as well. The only store I found carrying them is selling each figure at $80... a lot cheaper than buying a Dior outfit, that's for sure, but maybe not for all pockets. http://www.crowndozen.com/main/archives/upload/2006/07/DaftPunkKubrick-thumb.jpg But no worries. Evidently this Daft Punk sickness is more widespread than what I thought since they have made a cheaper Kubrick Daft Punk as well! Also by Medicom, done in a limited 3000 pieces series, this sells for about $50 (on eBay $80+) and comes with a CD: a Human After All remix album, featuring remixes by Soulwax , (my beloved) Peaches, Vitalic and others. Can it ever get better than this? Actually it will not. The Daft Punk Kubricks are imported from Japan, sold out and already put back on the market by scavengers for close to double the initial price. So I aint gonna get any... And no, Daft Punk is playing in my closet just won't happen... And I start thinking that this toy culture has degenerated: maybe we should have all stopped with The Smurfs...
