    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.

    Now days we just 3d print any number of props out of a movie. Its not the same as the real thing or a replica of the real thing being metal and all but you can have the look for next to nothing.

    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?

    You didn't show us the part you couldn't find... the "mechanical screwdriver."
    That guy Dan must have huge funds to buy all those wonderful props. You can see he really digs 'em to... analogous to Jay Leno's car collection.
    I loved the blaster, but the only replica prop I bought is a Maltese Falcon. I "weathered" it with some gold foil.
