Two-pages Japanese ad. Blade Runner. Text is not readable for me, I know, but I love the look of it with Blade Runner imaginery. It uses what now are classics candid pictures from the movie. Anuncio de Blade Runner de dos páginas en japonés. Yo no puedo leer el texto, ya lo se, pero me gusta el aspecto del mismo con la imaginería de Blade Runner. Incluye varias imágenes ya clásicas del film.Read More →

This is a complete set of origami figures, like the ones Gaff made in the movie, made by Shinsuke Fujimura, Japan. Includes an unicorn, a chicken and sticky man. The last one is not screen accurated, made with a plain match (the real one is wood match, I guess). Anyway, the chicken is very good. Juego completo de papiroflexia Completo juego de figuras origami, como las que Gaff hace en la película, realizadas por Shinsuke Fujimura, Japón. Incluye un unicornio, una gallina y un hombre empalmado. Este último no es exacto al que sale en pantalla, hecho con un fósforo plano (el real es deRead More →

Hard to find (just try it!), I’m luckily located this copy at ebay. Rare, very rare to see the PKD classic in Henrew language… Reading order is reverse, that is, from back to cover (like Japanese books and so on). And, the only data in occidental characters are the main title, ISBN number and year of publication… Wow, I need some lessons!!! Sueñan los androides con ovejas eléctricas? en edición hebrea Muy raro de localizar (¡sólo inténtalo!), he tenido la suerte de localizar una copia en ebay. Raro, muy raro ver la obra de PKD en lengua hebrea… El orden de lectura es inverso, esRead More →

A new blaster has arrived. Marked as M2019 C.S. Blaster model-gun kit, with a japanese cardbox, and MFG HWS legend, this plastic and metal modelgun is really heavy.

From Masakazu Takeda, just today I’ve received this unique Vid-Phon report “book”. In fact, a 20 pages booklet with complete information about Vid-Phon booth prop, with CD included. It depicts the real prop (one of them) used in the movie. The author has been so lucky to meet with the owner and take all kind of pictures from it. A nice report to (try to) do an accurate replica of this awesome prop! Thank you Masakazu! This report worths its value! In Japanese and English. Informe Vid-Phon Directo de Masazku Takeda, justo hoy acabo de recibir este único informe en forma de libro sobre elRead More →

Today I’ve received three Blurb books. None involved with Blade Runner. Two of them have Japan as subject. The other one, beautiful landscapes. Well, each one has different approachs in composition, cover, bindings, number of pages and so on. And all of them looks great in overall. Only type could be better in one of the books. Perhaps author faults, I don’t know. But, paper quality and picture quality is great! I think this will be the way… Blurb editions, one by one, with a reasonable cost, easy distribution to US/Canada market and not so expensive to Europe. Time of printing from order is aboutRead More →

At last, I won this little jewel. A 10 cm model spinner, made in resin (one block with some little parts, like cockpits, and so on), unassembled, brand new (!). Perfect. From Japan. The package method was impressive safe. Layers of plastic bubbles, envelopes, a “tupperware”!!!!!… all to protect it and be delivered as well as you can see. Modelo Spinner de Policia de Invisible Studio Finalmente he ganado esta pequeña joya. Un model de spinner de unos 10 cm, hecho en resina (de un solo bloque, con algunas piezas pequeñas, como el parabrisas, etc), sin montar, totalmente nuevo (!). Perfecto. Desde Japón. El paqueteRead More →

A new local version arrived just now. The Japanese edition! A very tiny book, in plain Japanese, printed in 1977, and the right to left order of pages, as Japanese books are. I love this cover. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Acabo de recibir una nueva versión local. ¡La edición japonesa! Un librito pequeño, en japonés de arriba a abajo, impreso en 1977, y con el clásico orden de las páginas de derecha a izquierda, como todos los libros japoneses. ¡Me encanta esta portada!Read More →

This book features architects, from the firmly established to the up-and-coming, with the focus on how they contributed to the architecture in Japan. This work includes contact information and short biographies in addition to illustrated descriptions of the architects or firms most significants projects. I think is a very interesting way to know some more about the real Japanese architecture, compared with landscapes created to Blade Runner by Ridley Scott. Perhaps those ones was inspiration for him. Architecture in Japan – Philip Jodidio – TASCHEN Este libro presenta arquitectos, desde los más establecidos hasta los noveles que empiezan a despuntar, con un enfoque en cómoRead More →

I cannot believe, but I still haven’t found all the books about Blade Runner world… 🙂 This is a little booklet about Harrison Ford filmography. Cannot say any more. Is in Japanese! Thus, you must wait until I finish my Japanese studies… 😛 Interesting pictures compilation about Ford’s career. Un librito dedicado a Harrison Ford en japonés No puedo creerlo, pero aún no he encontrado todos los libros que hay sobre Blade Runner en el mundo… 🙂 Este es un pequeño librito sobre la filmografía de Harrison Ford.

Today arrived my last of three desired asian editions of the Final Cut. The Korean Special Edition is here. Together with Chinese Special Edition and Japanese briefing case edition, I think this area is closed… Perhaps a Thai edition is out there… Now, I’m looking for a russian edition, if exists (I don’t know). More to come! Pictures of the mentioned editions are in my Mobile Blog (look at the left sidebar) ¡El círculo asiático está cerrado! (en mi humilde opinión) Hoy ha llegado la Edición Especial de Blade Runner en coreano. Junto a la edición china, también en Edicion Especial, y el maletín enRead More →

Today, Friday, I received some items and found some others. In my mailbox I found one nice first edition of Blade Runner 2, Jeter sequel, in Italian language. Nice and near new. Then, a FedEx boy brings me a japanese box with the Future Noir updated with 25th anniversary data (not so much if I must believe what I’ve read somewhere). Only Amazon Japan is selling this edition for now (in English and hardcover). Wow. Two nice additions… but there is more to come.  A DVD Accion magazine (Spanish one) with Deckard in cover. Not so extensive inside. Three pages talking about DVD and HDRead More →
