Daft Punk Are Now LEGO Minifigures, Near Immortality
Daft Punk is nearing immortality with one LEGO fan’s plan to turn the duo into minifigures.
Autorazr, who describes himself as a graphic designer, video artist and LEGO builder, proposed the idea in May 2014 within company’s one-year-old crowdsourcing website, LEGO Ideas. By December, the project had more than 2,000 LEGO community supporters, with 10,000 required for the Danish toy maker’s design team to actually review and seriously consider its viability.
That time has finally come. The campaign broke the 10,000-supporter mark late last month and received its first official (and song pun-filled) comments from LEGO.
“Oh Yeah!” the team writes. “There were Fragments of Time left for the requisite 10,000 supporters to show their Digital Love to this project, and Daft Punk fans from Around The World were Doin’ It Right to support your work. We know you’re Burnin’ for us to make a decision, but now it’s Something About Us. Your lovely project officially enters the LEGO Review stage, where we hope you will Get Lucky and your Digital Dreams come true.”
