Dance music heavyweight Armin van Buuren and Hardwell have been immortalised.
On 19th November, Hardwell and Armin van Buuren received the first copies of their own action figures. Dutch stand-up comedian (and friend of Hardwell) Guido Weijers handed over the first few figurines to the musicians.
Even though major international stars such as Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Kiss, and The Beatles have been immortalized this way before, Hardwell and Armin van Buuren are the first DJs to have received their own action figures.
The action figures have been created through the use of the latest 3D scanning and printing technology. With a hi-tech multi camera setup, the artists have been scanned and 3D printed. The result is a stunningly detailed figurine.
Armin van Buuren: “It’s impossible to embrace all my fans in the world, even though I want to! Through this figurine, I can get even closer to my fans.”
Hardwell: “I’m very proud to be one of the first two DJ’s ever to receive an action figure! I can only hope my fans are as excited as I am.”
Next to the action figures, the official music video for “Off The Hook” was also launched. The collaboration between Hardwell and Armin van Buuren was released as a single at the beginning of September and the track is also featured on “Embrace“, Armin van Buuren’s latest and 6th studio album. The music video is completely animated, and very superhero-esque. Befitting the action figures, if you asked us 🙂
