Sales of Daft Punk collectibles are through the roof after their split announcement

Sales of Daft Punk collectibles went through the roof after they announced their split.

Daft Punk announced they were bringing things to an end after 28 years last week, which led to sales of Daft Punk merchandise soaring.

Billboard reports that Etsy store owner Dylan Thomas sold $22,000 (£15,763) worth of custom helmets in the vein of the robots' classic headwear, while a figurine was up for sale for $406 (£290). Someone was even trying to flog one of the 'Get Lucky' condoms for $10,000 (£7165).

A sealed vinyl of Daft Punk's 2013 album 'Random Access Memories' - alongside a mask - is currently on eBay for £145, while there are countless helmets priced over £1000, a picture 12" vinyl of 'Get Lucky' up for £187, a 10-year anniversary edition of the Tron Legacy soundtrack going for £194.95 and a fan-made pair of gloves for £227.33.

There was no real reason for the French duo's break up. They just announced the split in a video called Epilogue.

Soon after they announced their break up, someone recreated their Alive 2007 set in virtual reality.

Maybe the split will also put an end to numerous rumours and answer the question of whether they'll ever tour again.
