I think it's awesome that this gun surfaced after all this time. Reading back on this thread I see how you mention he didn't think there was that much interest for Blade Runner... Laughing

Thank for you taking all these photos and making them available for us to see! What I wouldn't give to hold that gun myself... I would have been tempted to run away with it! Shocked


Why thank you! It was quite a thrill to be there and have the experience of handling it and taking the photos, let me tell you.

As for running away with it, the thought never crossed my mind. I think if I had done that I might have been "retired" by convention security. Shocked

Okay! My intell. could incorrect and the Science Fiction Hall Fame blaster may very well be a cast prop, I have not personally made the pilgrimage to the SFHF.

I would like to point out that you as a private citizen have every right to make damn near anything you want to as long as it is for personal use (currency, sprits, explosives, firearms, nukes and pharmaceuticals excluded). Copyright laws were enacted to protect a manufacturer from loss of trade, not to keep you from replicating an item for yourself. I am not talking about copying a DVD or photocopying War & Peace, I am saying that you are allowed to machine, carve, weld, and mold your own look-alike blaster without fear of being hauled into court.

The One in Seattle looks to be a stunt, and perhaps a stunt of Deckard's gun specifically. It very well could be screen used. A similar Stunt version can be seen in the film itself when Deckard gets his hand and blaster pulled through the wall. You can even see the molding line on top of the gun. A split second before it was the same hero as the worldcon with the cut white wires and all.

edit: Replaced old link with working link. Amish


I can't get these to display. Is there a problem with the file?

Also, since I can't see them, was there a crack on the right side
cylinder cover? Th3e castings of the stunt guns have that, so I'm curious about whether the hero was broken or if the stunt guns were copies of a broken casting.

You need to download the file, then unzip it.

Just tried it and it worked fine for me.

huh, it worked this time. I wonder why it wouldn't work at my work computer?

Aha! It DOES have the crack!

Thanks, Very useful stuff, especially for the finish.

Yes, I believe it was purchased from a profiles in history auction, a "hero" stunt with amber grips, then coated with a protective acrylic before being put on display.

Unlike the all black rubber model in the Orlando Planet Hollywood. Smile Which is just sealed in a shadow box.

The one that is in the ScreenUsed.com's permanent collection has the Painted grips which look like wood (somewhat). I believe they are the same as the ones many of the cops carried, along with some of the all black ones. The clear amber grips on rubber seems to mach the one Deckard had as his hand was pulled through the wall by Roy. I believe that might be the one at Seattle SFM. It also appeared in some of the publicity photos with Deckard in Sebastion's apt..

As well, I think one of the uniformed officers had a hero stunt with amber grips.

Most of the close up pics of the police showed the painted grips I am pretty sure. I would likely believe they would have had more "Hero Stunts" made than one, so it is entirely possible that they had a cop use one if they needed to round out the numbers, or he was expected to be seen in close up. The painting on the grips looks both like wood and the amber grips color wise, as well as from a distance.

Here are the screeused pics...





I am not sure it was ever used as Deckard's gun, but matches the pictures I have seen of the cops in the station that was posted at the RPF (that I can not find at the moment). I would say it makes a good back up stunt and is mean't to look like Deckard's gun for sure. From a quick glance or at a distance it looks like the clear amber grips.

Let me add my thanks, and suggest that, as there are still people discovering this resource in 2008, the nomination for Man of the Year 2008 be entered forthwith!
