Syd Mead definitely conceptualized not only much that was seen in BR, but even the Replicants themselves. It would be very interesting to know his ideas on what the Replicants were, specifically (circa 1980-81). Something that should be properly do***ented, maybe in the form of a tell-all short by Syd. And along with Ridley's thoughts in-conjunction.

I wonder how close they'd be to the concept of a real artificial human, when one comes about?

Syd tells of a dashboard scanner, that detects a Replicant based on their skulls. BR_Syd_Mead_Replicant_Scanner.png An early BR concept, as we see the art is similar to the piece below that Ridley loved.

It's slightly amusing to see Syd driving around in one of those old land yachts (1972 Imperial). A very similar car to what the NYPD had among their 1970s fleet. And of course, the Spinner's paint somewhat burrowed from their scheme (1973-96). Also, just as the BR-ground Police Cars did with the B&W LAPD scheme, alternatively.

Perhaps the rights to reproduce the Spinner are exclusive to Japanese toy-makers, currently. And yes, surely an official LEGO model would be an incredibly popular kit; unfortunately, only enough awesome sauce for one. The trick, Mr. FKB, is neverminding the seemingly endless wait.
