If you like a film, chances are you might get the DVD. If you love a film, you may end up getting the Blu-ray, the special collector’s edition, the director’s cut, the collectible bust and even the ultimate-limited-exclusive-super-duper-briefcase packaging that requires batteries for all the lights and sound effects.

But be warned: some of these babies are expensive, so read on at your peril.


Update: Now updated with 10 more overelaborate more box sets. Be sure to hide all your credit and debit cards before looking through these - you'll be grateful you did, trust us...

Scarface: Collectors Edition Cigar Box - Triple Play

Inside you’ll find a dollar bill with Tony’s face on it that reads “I TRUST ME”, Tony’s driver’s licence, several high quality character photo prints and a tie clip with Tony’s insignia on etched onto it. Note the neat ‘The World Is Yours’ cigar band on the corner as well as the conspicuous lack of any actual Cuban cigars – which would be very much illegal, of course…
