This is a fair warning to all, please do not read any further as the views, opinions and ideas presented in the following text are solely mine and do not necessarily represent those of any other living entity in the known or unknown universe[s].




UPDATE:

With the news of the all new boxset, I've had to make a few changes to the set but the new OFF-WORLD set should make a great companion set to the official one once it's out!!



INTEREST CHECK:

I’m going to compile all my Blade Runner DVD’s and transfers I’ve found into a 4 disc box set as pictured and detailed below. I will be using the latest and best transfers (to date and some coming soon) of all of the NA/OOP versions all complied onto dual-layer DVD’s to complete the collection for a few close friends, my brothers and myself but if there is enough interest I MAY upload the set to MySpleen upon completion (1-2 months or less)

THIS SET has been in the works for well over 8 months - a few of you here are aware of the project as you have the first discs from the early version of the set. This set is in NO WAY intended to replace or steal thunder from any previous release[s]. It’s just a much cooler presentation of ALL the know stuff that is out there.

YES, it is true that the majority of the contents of this set are “already out there” but it’s VERY spread out over MANY discs and most of them cannot be found on the internet at this time, some folks do not have the means to download what can be found. So NOW, I’m gathering it all into one definitive fan created collection. Again this set is really being created for family, friends and me; but if there is enough interest I’d be happy to share the set via torrents and trades.

IF anyone has any materials they would like to contribute to the set PLEASE email me at Rikter_Blaksvn (@) yahoo.com!


SEEKING THESE ITEMS TO HELP COMPLETE THE SET


- 3 GB WMV versions
- ANY of the BRAVO Blade Runner clips
- Any other Soundtrack not already listed




The major contributors (those that send stuff to me for the set) will be added to a mailing list for this set - I would just send every contributor the DL DVD's but I cannot afford that so I will start to create the list ONLY for the contributors this way they will not need to download the set!

I'm down for this insanity. If you're doing this, I may hold off on picking up the DFNYC set.

I used to be very active on this forum. I’m not really anymore. Hi everybody. You’re all awesome. Keep up the good work.

Rikter,

Is there really a point to putting everything together? It seems like everything on your list has been released already.

Like he said, he's doing it for some close friends and his brothers. He's just posting about it here to see if anyone would be interested in getting it.

I guess for the people that haven't downloaded the other versions, sure. But there's nothing new here. I have a bunch of Harrison Ford interviews and news clips that didn't fit...but they didn't really add anything to the set.

Well, as of yet, I only have one non-official BR DVD, and that's a rip of the International Cut. Everything else in that collection, I don't have yet, so it would help people like me. Plus, an isolated score would be sweetness.

Everything you don't have is on my set. There is no isolated score...but a score CD is on my 2 disc set. If you have what you have plus mine, you're set. The workprint is actually pretty unwatchable.

- Well yes there is, my brother and a best friend asked me too this. So I asked my younger brother if he’d be into a copy - he said yes also

I felt that the 80% of the current BR releases kinda bite, as they all seem to either have very bad menus (or none), no chapter selection or proper chapter stops AND take into account that NONE seem to match any other release (except the versions that I released last year - covers and menus match, chapter selection and stops) so the current versions are a hodgepodge collection of random fan created DVD’s.

That and well I like the story by Phillip K. Dick and I dig the interpretation of the story that Ridley Scott told us in the film (even though it LOOKS more like a Gibson future over the Dick future). So as I am a fan of the story and movie; I would like these somewhat rare titles to have a very nice overall package that brings all these elements into a single boxset.

BUT the REAL reasoning behind putting together a 4 disc set in a big fat 4 disc case is to save ink printing the covers!!!


That cover is awesome, Rikter! - Any chance of getting it early?


- THANKS! The cover I posted is a demo cover the back has no real details as I just cut and pasted it together in a few minutes to show my brother what it would look like in a 4 disc case. BUT once the project is underway and nearing completion I’ll release the full cover set (1 big fat 4 disc cover, 4 single case covers and disc art for all)

Rikter, I would hope you'd do a single-width case also, as I always put 4-disc sets into single-width 4-disc cases.

I'd be interested only in the Denver workprint. Has that been on MySpleen?

Neil

Well at least the reversed surround channels have been addressed.

I'm up for it. Which version did you send me? (I'd like to complete the set.)
MeBeJedi: Sadly, I believe the prequels are beyond repair.
JediRandy: They're certainly beyond any repair you're capable of making.


MeBeJedi: You aren't one of us.
Go-Mer-Tonic: I can't say I find that very disappointing.


JediRandy: I won't suck as much as a fan edit.

- Nope not yet but I've seen a XVID a few months back on mininova (I think) but no DVD; I will most likley upload as Disc 2 of this set

- Can I get this from you so I can add it to the 4th disc? THAT would be super sweet!

Rik,

This looks great. The cover is fantastic. I've always thought that that was the best promotional art out there.

Hes there only ever been one recording of the 'Denver' workprint? (Some guy sitting in the theatre filming it?). DigitalFreakNYC, I agree, it is largely unwatchable.
Mitch is yours different?

Cheers
