Even after three decades, Ridley Scott’s dystopian saga remains a hallmark of science-fiction cinema, retaining a fervent and loyal fan base. But even among dedicated memorabilia collectors, Geoff Hutchins’ exhaustive archive of Blade Runner-related items is simply stunning.
Over the past ten years, Hutchins’ catalog has grown from a single Big Box VHS tape to include untold hundreds of pieces—from the chair Harrison Ford sat in between takes to screen-used props to these incredible FX stills detailing the film’s opening flyby sequence. “I have to be honest and say that I do not have an accurate item count,” Hutchins told Gizmodo, but among all of his collection, these storyboards, “are one of my favourite items.” You can check out the rest of his most-prized examples on his website, Ridleyville.com.
