Wouldn't you love to own a Spinner? Okay, a real one is out of the question, but how about one of the more desirable of the Blade Runner collectibles - the ERTL Spinners? As one of the few original collectable items, they are sought after. Some people have made their own from scratch, but you can still get the Monsters in Motion model kit. The most likely place to find a lot of these models is on auctions (Search eBay). Just make sure you know exactly what you are buying.

There are a set of ERTL die-cast metal replica Spinners - not extremely rare just yet, but gradually becoming more rare as fans of Blade Runner buy them with no intention of selling them on. Here are a few to show what they are:

The Monsters in Motion Spinner Kit is described by them thus:

Spinner Car (Base not included )
Extremely detailed car with interior pilot and deckard figures. Made in a rotocast process allowing the modeler to light up or install RC. Comes with clear vacuform windows and etched detail in the car body.

The kit comes in 10 parts (resin). The final model is 17" (43cm) long. Oh, and it costs $200.
