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

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…

Current Price Online: £49.99
