Fun fact: Scott came from directing commercials and did the Apple '1984' one that you may have seen recently in 'Jobs'.

It's obviously been a huge influence and it's amazing how well the atmosphere and visuals stille hold up 30+ years later.

It's from the 5 disk edition with all five versions: U.S. Theatrical Cut ('82), International Theatrical Cut ('82), Director's Cut ('92), Pre-Release Workprint, and the Final Cut ('07).
Like so (in a steelbox):
I also had this:
but sold it to a friend a few days ago (same 5 disks but with more extras, all in a Voight-Kampff like attaché case).
