Wow since you're a completist Tome blaster i would love to know your thoughts, since i can only acquire one:

there's two that is available in the market: OG blaster and the refined 2019 Retail blaster and the soon Paragon FX... if you're me who can only and will only acquire one...which one will you choose and why? and the Paragon one, what do you think about the price tag? will it be cheaper than the Tome one?
I think the only major difference between the OG blaster and the 2019 Retail edition is that the OG blaster comes weathered to make it look street used like in the film and the official update list from Tomenosuke for the 2019 Retailer Edition include the following updates:

From Tomenosuke;

• We changed the shape of the bolt, bolt/handle, magazine housing
• The L-cylinder cover was made up of 2 parts and the shape was changed.
• We narrowed the diameter of the collar at the rear end of the sleeve
• We changed the position of the three screw holes of the blaster grip frame that fixes the grip frame of the Charter Arms
• The grips are 0.5mm thicker

Now the Tomenosuke 2019 Retailer Edition has even more improvements!

• The front of the bulldog cylinder has been shortened.
• This eliminates potential cylinder rotation issues if you dry fire the blaster extensively.
• Every model is hand-finished and tested before being signed off on by the Artisans at Tomenosuke in Japan.

As far as pricing goes, on Hollywood Collectibles both blasters are the exact same price.

Choosing which I prefer, I couldn't do it, pretty much why I bought both. The OG version is probably more screen accurate with the weathering, but the 2019 looks like it was right from the factory floor and issued to a day one Blade Runner.

I can't even begin to speculate on the Paragon model. The Tomen's run the range from $1500 US to $1200 US and as a Canadian that price immediately bumps up quite a bit with conversion which is why I always use the payment plan option. So I can only guess a Paragon model would be somewhere in that range.

Thanks for your answer... do you do mods yourself? is it easy to mod an assembly model like Tome? i mean breaking them down so i can blu those parts? Because i tell myself that if i can get one maybe i should get the 2019 retailer edition since IF in the near future i want it to be screen accurate, i can just disassembled it and do some weathering.

If you don't mind can you take some pictures if you have those two...side by side comparison would be nice...

Many thanks! :)

I haven't done any mods to any of my pistols. I have no experience in any kind've modding and they are too expensive for someone like me to do any type of tinkering with them.

They can be broken down though. They do actually come with a little wrench thing to help disassemble the pistol if you want as well as a booklet showing all the individual parts and where they go.

Here's some comparison photos from the Hollywood collectors site.

1. Weathered OG Model

2. 2019 Retailer Edition

Both models are $1200 on Hollywood Collectibles

3. The standard 2019 Model on Hollywood Collectibles is $1400 and that is the one that also comes with the additional rubber stunt blaster molded from the stunt prop.

Quote from the Japanese Tomenosuke Blog (translated via Google):

Regarding the "Blade Runner-2049" licensed version OEM Deckard Blaster that I talked about in the 2022-02-10 blog and the 2022-03-05 blog, 1000 pieces will be produced as soon as the import license is granted by the US customs. It starts.
We will also manufacture 250 sets of police model conversion kits .
In addition, 500 stunt model assembly kits have been decided, and more recently, we received a request for a quote for a white metal key chain and 1000 completed 1/6 nanos each.
Also, it seems that the OEM orderer (American toy maker) makes its own blaster water gun in China.
The number of production is 10,000.

I would like to see a proper gun metal version.. not the soft metalised plastic, zinc and pewter
one that would have the proper weight and take rough handling, that you'd have to care for like a real gun
Proper weight ? I think my tomen weighs close to 6 lbs with the metal cylinder. It's ridiculously heavy compared to an actual firearm.

This is why I didn't see a reason to change any of the parts on mine to metal. It's heavy enough as-is. That and it would alter the version they took off the shelf and used in 2049.

Hi guys,

Numerous licensed versions of the blaster are actually in production, now.

Remember, since Paragon does not do pre-orders, there really is no traditional 'update' to be done for those who might have pre-ordered, etc.
We'd prefer to just make things and offer them when ready.

Moving forward, when we're a couple months out from landing a given item, we will allow for reservations.

Just trying to do things a little different. Projects will stay relatively quiet until there's something to show. By that point, they should be well into production. Then, we'll start showing things off.

Quiet just means, things are getting done. (y)

Thanks!

I'm actually glad they're still a little ways off. I still have four more payments on my current Tomen order.

How are these going to differ from the Tomenosuke Blasters? Material, functions etc?

Specifically the original 2019 Blaster from the first movie.

Thanks
