This Daft Punk LEGO Set Needs To Be A Thing

Not many bands translate well into custom LEGO sets - but then again, not many bands are a pair of robots with a cult following.
LEGO Ideas is a site where fans of the product can submit their own original creations, and through community interest and voting, can potentially have their concept transformed into a real product sold by the LEGO company.
Complete with little records, decks and guitars, the minifigures of Thomas and Guy-Man are instantly recognisable in their custom-made helmets and leather jackets. And Autorazr has a lot of big plans for incorporating the band into the LEGO universe.
"Daft Punk have appeared in "Tron" and in their own movie "Electroma," their distinct visual style is clearly appealing to fans of Sci-Fi, which to me speaks to their "playability." Much of Lego's success has come from Space and other Sci-Fi/Fantasy lines. Daft Punk should fit right in with such lines. Space Police running security at a Daft Punk show on some alien planet? Daft Punk rescued by the Galaxy Patrol? Daft Punk abducted from earth during their ALIVE tour? Endless possibilities? The style and tone of Daft Punk aligns perfectly with Lego and would create an experience that people of all ages can enjoy."Autorazr, Daft Punk on LEGO Ideas
After the campaign reached 1,000 supporters, LEGO responded with a pun-irific comment.
"This project is speeding and it isn't stopping. This project didn't just get lucky, the detail and thought behind the project speaks for itself. Just make sure you celebrate 1,000+ supporters by losing yourself to the dance!
Good luck as you continue to work it, make it, do it, until you reach 10,000 Supporters!"LEGO, Daft Punk on LEGO Ideas
