Blade Runner ain’t exactly Star Wars when it comes to finding merchandise. There are however some websites that are fantastic, like Propsummit where creative people can show their prop creations, discuss and help each other create some truly magnificent Blade Runner items for people to collect.
Finding items can be somehow hard (and/or very pricey) but some things are truly wonderful and being unique handmade items made in limited numbers this is understandable. Items like Scott Pettersens Blade Runner figures are just a few of the amazing items being created by artists that truly deserves some recognition for their work.
Not only is he creating very lifelike figures but also finds fabrics for clothing for the 12″ figures that is as close to what we can see in the movie.
Analog Sweden (A Swedish based studio created from a passion of analog synthesizers, vintage studio equipment and the culture surrounding it) has created a crowdfunded Blade Runner inspired musical project that also will involve Artwork from Kilian Eng, HR-FM and other artists. The music will be made with the same analog instruments as Vangelis used to make the wonderful audio landscape that is the music of Blade Runner.
The idea behind this is to explore into the other stories in the Blade Runner universe.
- Create a Full Length Soundtrack
- Using Vangelis original equipment & recording process
- Artwork to each track by Kilian Eng, HR-FM + others
- Based on new stories, inspired by the world of Blade Runner

Stories we like to call the “Moments Lost”. We want to see these stories transform into stunning music and illustrations
