** Deckard's whiskey glasses and bottle, trenchcoat and even the tiles in his apartment have been made into real (albeit [[CrackIsCheaper insanely expensive)]] products. Even the [[http://www.thinkgeek.com/homeoffice/gear/d163/ neon light umbrellas]] are available from Thinkgeek (albeit the Thinkgeek versions are. more practical LED/fiber-optic rather then neon tubes).

** More solidified now in that it's generally agreed upon that Deckard is human in the theatrical cut and a replicant in the directors.
** According to Creator/MarkKermode the idea of Deckard being a replicant first arose from a misunderstanding between the screenwriters: One had written into the script a line about Deckard wondering about his own creator, which was intended as him comparing himself to replicants and the creator being God. The other writer thought this line meant Deckard was a replicant, and led to both thinking the other one put forth the idea first.

* CreatorPreferredAdaptation: Creator/PhillipKDick felt that the film (at least, the director's cut, not the butchered theatrical version) was superior to its source material, his novel ''Literature/DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep?'', and was amazed at how the book was "escalated into such stunning dimensions."
