    Adam, you should make Dan a replica of your "Official Blaster-New Issue Case" that you store yours in.

    The film Blade Runner is nothing like the book. Deckards gun is barely described. I think it was referred to as a 'laser tube' which is kind of vague. Now the gun seems to have a following of its own. Well I've got a NERF gun that looks just like it so I'm sorted for life, I don't need no £300 replica.

    Realizing that this video is 2 years old at this point, does it bother anyone else that at the end Dan is not exercising good trigger control and Adam is?

      It opens the cylinder. Though we never see Deckard reload. Technically I think we hear him cock it (when he tries to ambush Roy Batty.).

    How did this guy get so much memorable? He doesn't look like the wealthiest cat in town so how did he not get out bid by people with more money who also wants to nerd out?
    Or does he have some connection with the FX studios that gave him first dibs?
