I'm surprised with the lack of interest in this. It's super minor but still kinda neat.

Here are couple diagrams I made showing a couple of the items used.





The Braun Lighter attached to the Microscope is also attached to the ESPER Flash Handle. Can't find a good cap right now though.

Your photo of the fan is a spanish licensed one, slighty different than the original Braun made that appears in the movie... compare it with the movie still you've posted !



(I've already bought one and am looking for a second one... Thanks, Andy !!!)

sure, but why does Deckard have a Tupperware Jell-O mold in his sink? for dinner parties??

Something about Tupperware; it appeared in everything for a while there. Remember Aunt Beru's dining set? blue milk in Tupperware Ice Tea Glasses.

maybe Tupperware ladies were really brain-sucking aliens with hypno power that convinced everyone they were from the future. Or maybe that's my own girl-hell paranoia creeping in. back to the topic!!

Although this is probably known already, its not mentioned in the previous
posts, that the coffee grinder and maker as seen in nickdarings pic are also Braun products.
Ive been searching for a while now and finally came across them recently.
The listings werent specific with model numbers etc but will post when they arrive.I like to take my collecting in different directions and this completes my Deckard kitchen collection, although the coffee maker and fan are orange, orange is nice......
