Daft Punk getting SH Figuarts treatment

A little questionable but not unprecedented for SH Figuarts, considering that the characters don’t actually equip or transform, but still pretty cool: the brand of highly-articulated action figures is broadening its horizons again to include real (ish) people, the French electronic music duo Daft Punk. The pair is due in November, and will most likely be coming to the US as well, seeing as they were announced via Bluefin’s facebook page. The obvious Japanese connection with the group is their partnership with Leiji Matsumoto for the feature-length anime music video Interstella 5555 back in 2003, and there are already rumors circulating about another musical icon that Matsumoto’s animated for, Freddie Mercury, getting similar treatment in the future.
