A Blade Runner Figure That's Actually Worth Buying...

The merchandising licence to Blade Runner is allegedly mired in morass of legal mumbo jumbo. That being the case, it'll take a good three or four decades before any legit Blade Runner figure from a company like Sideshow or Hot Toys will hit shelves. However, as any collector of 1/6th scale figures worth their weight in custom made head sculpts knows, you can always count on smaller toy companies with grapefruit sized genitals to scoff at little things like "legalities" and "merchandising licences" and take the creative reigns and make kick ass figures of kick ass movie characters by simply re-naming famous properties with near similar sounding titles. Hence figures like Subway's ax wielding, Jack Nicolson in "The Screaming", Loading Toys Jason Statham "The Courier" and so on. Now, Brother Productions and Dr. Figures has done a smashing job of cobbling together Harrison Ford's Deckard with their upcoming 1/6th scale "Blade Hunter" figure....
