Daft Punk have unveiled their own line of action figures.

The toys have been created by the dance duo with Bandai and Japan's SH Figuarts. According Exclaim, a product description reads that the figures were "crafted with meticulous attention to detail – [the] helmet area employs a shiny metallic finish and clear parts for enhanced realism". In addition, they feature "advanced SH Figuarts articulation and seven sets of left/right interchangeable hand parts for recreation of dynamic posing".

The toys will be sold separately but won't officially be out until later this year, with a Japanese release date set for November and an American date at the end of December.

Meanwhile, Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky' has become the first single released in 2013 to sell a million copies in the UK. The disco hit from the duo's hugely successful album 'Random Access Memories' features Pharrell Willliams and Chic's Nile Rodgers and is the 136th single to shift a million in the 60-year history of the UK Singles Chart.
