Daft Punk will continue promoting their newest album, Random Access Memories, with the release of action figures later this year. The six-inch figures were designed under the French duo's supervision and will feature Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo dressed in their Random Access Memories outfits.

The figures are "crafted with meticulous attention to detail — [the] helmet area employs a shiny metallic finish and clear parts for enhanced realism," according to a product description. The action figures will also come with seven sets of interchangeable hand parts to collect, for purposes of recreating "dynamic posing."

The miniatures are currently available for pre-order and will be released on December 27th.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
