In this section we help promote LEGO Cuusoo idea’s to help them reach the 10,000 likes needed for their idea to get created! This week we feature the idea called Daft Punk created by JakeMeier. Here’s what the creator had to say about the idea:

LEGO Daft Punk

Daft Punk have many costumes, set designs and movie appearances, that can be recreated with Lego, mostly without creating new parts (I would propose only new printed tiles/stickers, minifig body and helmets/heads be made new).

Ideas for sets:
– “Tron.” Given Disney’s relationship with Lego, this could be easy I’m guessing.
– ALIVE 2007 stage, or any previous or upcoming show’s stage.
– Classic Daft Punk (much like my image).
– “Electroma” inspired sets.
– Interstella 5555 (this would rule).
– Some general Robot Rocking?

We have seen Daft Punk appear 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 meshes perfectly with Lego and would create an experience that people of all ages can enjoy.

If there could be only one Daft Punk model as a opposed to a line, I propose something similar to my model, but would include a stage with lights and audio equipment, with a couple more minfigs like a tech guy and a fan or two. It should define Daft Punk’s visual style in a less specific way (somewhat like my models), to allow for builders to explore custom options.

May 13 – We have reached over 100 supporters in just a few days, making the #9 spot on the most supported projects. Thank you for supporting.

May 19 – New Pic! New robot helmet! So I have added an alternate concept for Thomas’ helmet, Though I would like to express again, when this is made, it will look exactly like the real thing, as I am proposing new minifig pieces be made for this set.

May 20 – Now the #5 spot on most supported projects. Thank you supporters. More photos coming soon.

October 24 – Finally new pics of the LED lit pyramid stage, and new outfits for the guys. We managed to clinch the #3 spot last week on the top ten and we are now at 1500 supporters. Thanks everybody.
