I would love to get myself a 2019 Detective Special, Deckard's gun from Blade Runner. The thing... it rather obviously looks like a gun. And I live in the UK, where guns are a big no-no.
Now, in the case of a raygun or a Star Wars weapon, I do not think there would be much of a problem. It might cause a moment of suprise for the guy operating the X-ray machine, but if it is labelled as "Star Wars Sci-Fi Laser Replica" then it should be OK.
But the iconic weapon from Blade Runner... actually looks like a gun. In reality it could never actually work, it couldn't shoot anything. But you could probably pull it out in a bank and threaten people with it and they'd take you seriously.
Has anyone succesfully imported such a thing into the UK in the past few years? A Blade Runner pistol or some other replica gun that looks... gun-like?
It was easier in the past, but I think the laws on toys and replicas have become much tougher. My hope is that because it is not a replica of a real model of weapon, it is not restricted by the laws against replica weapons.
