Posted this over at RPF but thought it deserved a place here, too. Smile

I've had a slight resurgence of interest in prop collecting - inspired largely by the Tomenosuke blaster (pictured below) but especially the Blade Runner 2049 movie.

Having sold off a fair few 'Gucci' items in recent years, like the 2019 JW Whiskey bottle [sigh], my current display looks a little depleted but it'll build again all in good time (yes, the Kyriazi tin is screen accurate!).

The main reason for this thread is to show the LED screen I've installed above the 'collection' which I feel sets it off nicely with a rotating set of 'neon' Blade Runner themed images suspended above; artwork, screen grabs etc. There's a few pics of props too which fills 'holes' in the collection, albeit digitally.

For those interested, this is an LG 32LK6100 (32") which has a slightly unusual, bulky bezel design that I feel mimics certain aesthetics in 2049 (e.g. the Denabase) - and the franchise as a whole. It even reminds me somewhat of the Off World blimp's display in 2019.



Some of the 170 or so curated images on rotation... all hail and props to the original artists.



Here I've used an old digital frame to display randomised images from various screens in 2049, inspired by Lt. Joshi's deskware. Added some random greeblies, a few licks of grey and black paint, a small bit of red accent cut from a roll of 'FRAGILE' parcel tape then some scraping/silver sharpie here and there to accent the edges and weather it down a little. JVC logo home printed and whacked on with a glue stick. The logo's a little rough and doesn't stand up to close scrutiny but it sets it off I think. Took about 90 minutes, all-in.

Hope you like! (y)

If you're wondering what the stand is, with all the aerial shenanigans, it's literally just screwed onto an old Belkin Router at an angle.

This is such a great idea. I like that its not static. So much of both films aesthetic is the lighting, and it was always moving. I did up an led picture frame with an alien vibe that a friend badgered me for till I gave it up. I will certainly have to revisit. Those blaster stands always looked awkward to me, but seeing it with the Tomen, it works perfect!

Very nice, and thank you for sharing.

A memory bearing illuminated with a cheap (3.99) LED stand and a bit of fiddlery and painting of the cap of a glue stick. The 'memory' itself is a little overexposed here. Exposure range a bit too extreme for my phone's camera.

Fun idea...eerie when you look at it; the illuminated memory has a special meaning now.

Should be a standard item in any BR2049 collection!
