For the first month of the year I watched Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner from 1982. Now this is a unique film in that I had to watch it twice in order to formulate a proper opinion.

Blade Runner has a few versions available. It’s one of the first films that came into public consciousness in regards to multiple cuts. I have the 3-Disc BluRay which has 5 versions: Theatrical Cut, Director’s Cut, International Theatrical Cut, Workprint and Final Cut. The Final cut is the one that Ridley Scott had full control over.

More Pop!

As you can see I love collecting these Funko Pop! Figures. It really has become sort of an addiction. You can thank my wife for that. Here are the newest additions…

Added to the collection is Harley Quinn. This is version is from the Batman: Arkham Asylum game. But since I don’t have that game, I had to take a picture of her in front of one of her newer comics.

These actually are my father’s as I have gotten him into collecting them as well. He and I are huge Game of Thrones fans. So here we have Daenerys Targaryen and her dragon Drogon. Accompanying them are Jon Snow and his Direwolf Ghost. The stand in front of the new book from creator George R. R. Martin chronicling the history of Westeros.

I picked this up on Black Friday. New to the group is Luke Skywalker in his cold weather gear on Hoth standing in front of the DVD of The Empire Strikes Back.

Last we have Edward Kenway, captain of the Jackdaw, grandfather of Assassin’s Creed III character Connor and protagonist of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag standing in front of the PS3 version of the game.

Joining her fellow assassin Edward is Avenline DeGrandpre of Assassin’s Creed III Liberation.
