One of the most iconic and enigmatic musical duos of all time, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homen-Christo, more commonly know as Daft Punk, are multiple Grammy award-winning music producers from France.
Formed in 1993, daft punk would start off playing in clubs around Europe, they would eventually release their first album, Homework in 1997. The duo would later release 3 additional studio albums and produce the soundtrack for the film Tron: Legacy. Alongside their music, the band would also be known for their unique style, donning a pair of robotic helmets that concealed their faces, both of which remain a mystery to this day.
This ideas submission commemorates the band itself as well as the designs of both helmets, including brick-built versions of both Thomas' silver and Guy-Manuel's gold casques. The helmets are laid on stands, and would make for great display pieces!
The mainly-curved shapes were a great challenge to figure out with Lego bricks, especially with Guy-Manuel's helmet, though the windscreen from the UCS Slave-I proved to be an invaluable asset. Though the builds use a lot of chrome pieces, they could be substituted for the more common flat silver and pearl gold colours without compromising too much on the overall look.
I am a huge fan of Daft Punk's music and would personally love to see an idea like this become an official set. If you also enjoy listening to the band, music in general or would just like the helmets as a display piece, please consider supporting the project! Any and all support or feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thank you !
