your sci-fi mem­o­ra­bilia val­ued by the ex­perts from auc­tion­eers Vec­tis

Dave Reid sent us a pic­ture of his set of die-cast cars from Ri­d­ley Scott’s 1982 clas­sic Blade Run­ner, made by Ertl. It fea­tures Deckard’s ground car, his Chase Spin­ner, Bryant’s Po­lice Spin­ner and Rachael’s Spin­ner. “They are 1/64 match­box size and I’ve had them since the film came out. They are mint in box and it’s never been opened. I did have the in­di­vid­ual carded cars but fool­ishly opened them for dis­play, then – even more fool­ishly – traded them!” We’re just amazed Blade Run­ner had toys as­so­ci­ated with it…

Andy Reed of Vec­tis says: “The Blade Run­ner sets were mass-pro­duced in 1982 to co­in­cide with the release of the film. Al­though they don’t come on to the mar­ket very of­ten they don’t com­mand the same high prices as some of the other film/TV-re­lated sets re­leased at the same time. The Dukes Of Haz­zard, for in­stance, were also is­su­ing toys around then, and they were much more de­sir­able.”
