With Daft Punk’s newest album Random Access Memories igniting old fans and creating new ones, listeners are wanting to channel their inner inner robot.

Similar to the Deadmau5 mouse helmet craze, Daft Punk’s signature space-age masks are in high demand. This is mainly due to the fact that the group refuses to sell their own; but that hasn’t stopped anyone from capitalizing on it. Daft Punk memorabilia creators are taking advantage of the open opportunity by selling off custom creations for as much as $1,500.

These aren’t just some homemade arts and crafts projects; these are the real deal. Daft Punk’s helmets, according to a recent interview with the group in Rolling Stone, are made by Hollywood special-effects shops that have worked on movies like Spider-Man.

Currently, there are some amazing Daft Punk helmets on Etsy and eBay , this guy created one in 17-months and there’s a DIY forum.
