Some month ago I extended my Blade Runner prop collection with a wonderful fan-made set of items called The Unicorn File and even thou most of the set isn’t even seen in the movie I consider it to be a true gem in my collection (There is one origami unicorn included and it looks very much like the one in the movie).
The set consists of items that very well could have been in the movie as Deckard’s Voight-Kampff operator license card or a receipt from the White Dragon where Deckard gets a meal. Some items in the set comes weathered as they have been used as receipts and tickets might be and some are pristine
Items like this one is very nice to find and one should remember that items like this are made by fans for other fans to enjoy and cherish. You can find information on how you might get one of these sets for yourself (as of now, there are only six sets left). The price is €25 and includes shipping worldwide.
You can find all the information and pictures of the set at the Unicorn File thread @ Propsummit.com
I decided to make two videos showing of the items in this amazing set and post here so that everyone could get a good look at how truly amazing fan made props or memorabilia items can be. As a fan of Blade Runner, items like this are truly wonderful to own and collect.

Forbes has an great interview with Joanna Cassidy where they talk about the scene that never was made. Zhora’s dance with the artificial snake at Taffey Lewis bar. Luckily for us, Joanna produced her own version and made it available for us fans to see and I must say that it was an impressive thing to see.
