Blade Runner 'mates

13 posts in this topic

Since we're doing other stuff from the Ridleyverse, I'd kill for a set of Mates with Rick Deckard and Roy Batty, bonus points for a scaled down Spinner vehicle. No idea how hard the likeness rights/merch rights would be to obtain.

...yeah I'm not going to lie, I mostly want those two so I can also purchase some Terminator endoskeletons and have my own set of Hideo Kojima's "SNATCHER" Minimates as QC's. I have a ton of love for the movie as well obviously, but I am borderline obsessed with that game.

Merchandising rights for Blade Runner product is a legal black hole, and has been for years. IF the sequel actually happens, that will be our best opportunity for merchandise, but i wouldn't get my hopes up...

I'm sure there's pent up demand for the property given the legal conundrum. Once that gets sorted out, count me in. (And yes; spinners, too.)

I'm not sure whether Blade Runner was actually as 'great' as I remember it but the two versions of the Spinners (Medicom kubrick) are just beautiful .

It's better. One of the few movies from my childhood that has actually grown with me. I notice something new everytime I watch it (director's cut, that is). I'd be thrilled to bits with any type of merchandising for this classic.

I'd be all over this with bags of money.

Found this interesting:

"Alcon Entertainment acquired the film, television and ancillary franchise rights in 2011 from producer Bud Yorkin to produce prequels and sequels to the iconic science-fiction thriller. Yorkin will serve as a producer on the sequel along with Kosove and Johnson. Cynthia Sikes Yorkin will co-produce. Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble, CEOs of Thunderbird Films, will serve as executive producers."

I'm wondering if "ancillary franchise rights" includes merchandising rights for the original.

Apparently at the panel at SDCC, Chuck called out Blade Runner as a top property he'd like to do. I am 100% behind the idea, if the aforementioned rights stuff can get parsed. I'm loving the cast of the new movie, which includes Harrison Ford, Jared Leto, Dave Bautista, Robin Wright and Ryan Gosling. Seems like the new movie next year would be a good time to do both new & old 'mates?

Any chance this property will be announced at SDCC this year?

If we get Blade Runner mates, I think my head will explode!  Also my wallet.😊

If the vehicle was made and a cop or two to go with it I would get those. I always need random law enforcement/army mates.
