Hi folks. Slightly left of field, but do any of you collect or have any knowledge of movie memorabilia? My knowledge consists of what I've picked up on shows such as Pawn Stars, which isn't much if I am being honest. Let's face it, it is light entertainment rather than educational viewing. The reason that I ask is that with the release of Blade Runner 2049 later this year, I would like to do something nice for my dad. You see, the original is his favourite film of all time (it is certainly one of my favourites, although maybe not at the top of the list) and he is understandably excited about the upcoming release of the sequel! I just hope they do the original justice and don't completely mess it up like they do with so many type. Many have accused it of being nothing more than a money spinner, but I'm less cynical and quietly optimistic. But I digress....
What I would like to get for my dad is a replica Deckard's "blaster" from the film, an item that I believe it is truly iconic of this cult classic. I've been looking around online for used movie memorabilia for sale but I can't really find the right source for what I want. I've seen a few examples listed on eBay, but I was wondering if anybody new of a reliable movie prop or memorabilia vendor I could approach. Any & all pointers appreciated.

This is but one of numerous videos that you can find
