Hi all,

I've received a couple of questions about the Replicant Dossier and Deckard Personnel File projects I had done in the past. I haven't made them available as digital prop packs (as I had with some other stuff) becuase I intended to get back to making them someday. It's pretty clear now that I don't think I will.



So...

My question is, is there any interest in the digital versions of these props? They're pretty extensive. And what do you think would be a fair price?

The Replicant Dossier is what I imagined Deckard receiving from Bryant upon taking the case, and the Deckard Peronnel file contains info about Deckard, his kills, and a file on each of the recently retired Nexus 6's.

Well I am interested! Is there no possibilty of you considering doing a production run again? Or is this definitely only going to be a digital prop?

Regards

Paul.

I just don't think there's much possability of me doing any more runs - I just can't seem to find the time, so I think all-digital may be the way to go.

As for price, I'm interested to find out what people feel would be reasonable...

it's your masterpiece Ben. I would certainly be interested DOP. Could you break down the Dossier into sections so we could purchase what we want most, and also be able to pay for the whole thing in installments?

Thank you very much again,
Andy

So are you saying that you would sell all this on a cd, and the buyers could just go print there copie off? I can see this leading to 100 ebay auctions right now. I think your best bet would be to find one person to buy this from you or work out a percentage deal on sales.

He has been selling off his files for the other stuff he made already and surprisingly, I have not seen any ebay auctions from them.

I think digital is the way to go.

So here goes then... as I am currently very poor I mean no offense when I offer US$35.00??? Embarassed
I understand the huge amount of time and effort that went into the production of this project, i'ts just that, that is all I think I could do in my current situation. I would like the replicant file ATM but I would still like to be able to obtain the Dekard collection later if my situation improves.

As for ebay sales I kind of expect the people that come to this place, or at least the ones I have had dealings with would consider that sort of thing as theft.

I hope I cause no offense.

Hi all,

I was recently contacted by John Bullock (I believe he is member here) who expressed interest in producing the finished versions. For context, I believe he's working with Richard Coyle to distribute the Worldcon blaster in the UK & Europe.

I'll be talking to him to see if there will be issues if anyone wants digital-only copies. How does that sound to everyone?

Hi Ben!

Well, a digital version will be nice to sahre, distribute and print (if anyone wanna a print copy, perhaps not). But if you have an offer to work with someone as J. Bullock to produce it as printed material and so, it's fine too! I think this may be a double offer. Printed one, with high quality printing, paper and so on, for a price covering production costs and your excellent work (perhaps in the range of 75-100$, I don't know), and the digital one, for a price range of 35-75$ (starting with the only opening price wrote till now!), and printing quality will be the choice of each one.

Anyway, you know, this set is VERY interesting from my point of view.... as ever! Very Happy

PM sent.

Ben,

Awesome stuff as always. While I cannot give great input to an exact price I can offer that a digital version, in my opinion, holds more weight over a printed version.

With digital, you can make as many copies as you want, you risk people giving it away for free, and worse, it ends up on ebay.

If you sold the paper versions of this for $25, I would sell the digital for $50. The prices I used are just imaginery to get my point across.

I know this may counter what people think, but looking at the long term, a digital copy has more value for those who own it because you can create as many copies as you like.

Otherwise, I am interested

Tom

....I have an interest in either paper or digital....I PREFER paper...something about...PRODUCT and the physical effort by someone who cares enough to DO THE WORK and goes to all the trouble to create package solicit and ship.....with the full realization that PAPER is antiquated and going the way of the dinosaur I still love the idea of opening a package and discovering....you get my drift.....

Bassnoir - I agree with you completely - in my case, it's just a matter of not having the time to assemble them.

The way I originally built and packaged them, they were sealed in several places so you had to actually break the seals to get to the material - the idea being you could sit down and imagine actually going through the restricted files. (They also included handwritten notes, applied blood stains on some of the material taken from one of the retired replicants, etc).

In fact, the Deckard personnel file even included a special "eyes only" envelope (sealed to the inside back of the file) that wasn't in the description. If you wanted to know what was in it, you had to tear it open...

I'm please to announce that I have reach an agreement with Whitefall to take over production and sale of these items, and am in the process of securing adequate supply of the various items that go into each.

They will be offered as Whitefall envisioned, as 'real' documents in that certain items will be sealed shut, requiring the reader to 'break' the seal in order to get at the contents. Also they will be produced using different types of high quality paper stock and all photos will be high definition, also printed on high quality photostock , Whitfall has included a photo montage of what's included, the price for each file is $150 (UK 95) international post & packing FREE , both bought together $ 250 (UK 150) and if you buy the second at a later date $125 (UK 75) , again all shipping and packaging FREE Orders welcome I expect to be shipping these by the 1st of December or earler if possible. I will be posting an add in the Prop Store as well

Glad to see someone has taken this project on. However it also seems to now be WAY out of my price range. Which of course sucks.
