If you’re a serious Blade Runner fan this collectible is beyond question one of the best around.
This is a rare, unopened CS&T All-Metal Worldcon (2010) Blade Runner M2019 CNC Blaster Prop Replica. So even though it’s second hand, because it is unopened it is basically new.
What makes this particularly special is that although it is a limited edition item of only 500 pieces (as per the plaque), this particular one falls into a sub-category where it’s technically a limited edition item of only 80 pieces. The reason is it was supplied to the seller directly by the craftsmen Richard Coyle himself who only made 80 of the 2010 models.
So this is technically No. #6 of a Limited Run of 80 – that makes it rare indeed.
One of my favorite Blade Runner blasters is the Limited Edition Off World Manufacturing Deluxe M2019 CNC, but it’s true to say this one is definitely a notch above for screen accuracy and quality of materials. Whereas most M2019 CNC blasters have a good deal of plastic in their construction, this Coyle blaster is mostly made from metal.
If you didn’t already know, Richard Coyle is a master Prop Replica craftsmen who has made props for many films including Star Trek II, IV, V, VI.
This is the screen accurate version of the blaster with the proper screw instead of the weaver knob and wires hidden as they are on screen.
The rear trigger is functional as are all red and green LEDs.
Note that this is the only Blade Runner M2019 CNC Blaster Prop Replica with working green LEDs and molded off a real bulldog frame and receiver (the original prop was partially built from a real bulldog gun.)
It has non-functional .44 shells, and a true .44 bore barrel just like the original prop.
The barrel is filled 40% of the way with pewter to comply with gun laws, has no firing pin, etc.
This is a hand made blaster made by Richard Coyle. Each of the 80 blaster replicas he made reportedly took an entire week to finish (so as you can see, the Limited Edition run of 500 are not all the same, otherwise Coyle would have been working for a decade to make them!). That’s why these are the 2010 models, while the 2011 models make up the remainder (as he had additional help to complete them and they were no longer entirely hand crafted by Coyle).
How do you know this to be true? Because the sale of this prop replica includes a printout of an email from Coyle confirming it was made before Coyle brought on help to finish off his blasters, and a copy of the original receipt minus the dollar amount.
This is the most sought after Blade Runner Blaster prop replica on the market.
The blaster comes with a plexiglass display stand and plaque stating it’s blaster #6 of the CS&T “All Metal” Worldcon 2010 model.
Did you know the blaster it is modeled on sold for $225,000!
That makes the sale price on this model pretty low, at $1,790.
