Blade Runner VidPhone prop being auctioned3 RepliesAdd A Reply
The VidPhone that Decker used to call Rachel is being auctioned off by The Prop Store of London. Even though the auction hasn't officially begun you can place bids on it in advance. It's a fairly large auction with many articles and props from different films going on the block. They estimate the VidPhone prop will go for Fifteen to Twenty thousand British Pounds(that's $30,000- $50,000 to you and me). Out of my price range but I'd love to have it.It still has all the electronics needed to pipe video to the screen. If I had it I'd hook it up to Skype and order pizza's and stuff(we have a place in town that has Skype ordering operators) The VidPhone with a description and pics can be found on page 37 of The Prop Store of Londons interactive catalog of there next live auction. Here's a video of the piece showing it off for the auction: Prop Store auction ad for BR VidPhone Here's the VidPhone scene from BR. The graffiti and everything matches the prop being auctioned :) Blade Runner VidPhone scene
