New York Toy Company Sweatyfrog are producing a limited edition series of DJ Dolls, starting with the somewhat unlikely superhero figure of Danny Howells.

"We love electronica, and being from New York City, we'd go down to a lot of clubs and when we heard Danny spin in Arc, then called Vinyl, we were in love! That was it," said Sweatyfrog president Michael Yi.

"We wanted to make a figure of him in the style of Hong Kong Vinyl because that's what really shows the vibe of the Music and the DJ's."

The action-man style DJ dolls will be 7" in height and will be produced in strictly limited runs of 1,000. Mr Yi suggests the dolls will be available for between $60 and $80 when they hit the streets in November.
