Daft Punk Random Access Memories Box Set: The Daft-initive Collection

Daft Punk’s big album this year, Random Access Memories, is about to get even bigger with this behemoth of a box set. Drop $275 on this baby and you’ll score a treasure trove of both media and memorabilia including: a 56 page hardcover photo book of images from the RAM recording sessions and film shoots; special edition 180 gram double vinyl of RAM with gold and silver foil labels; 10” collector’s vinyl containing an extended interview with Giorgio Moroder taken from the original session recordings for the song, “Giorgio by Moroder”; two sets of robot helmet design schematics; and yes, much more.

The Walking Dead Season 3 Limited Edition Set: Heads Up

Word on the street (fine, the Internet) is that this season of The Walking Dead has been pretty solid. Of course it ain’t over yet, but we wanted to give you a heads up about this gruesome Season 3 Limited Edition Set ($TBA) before it comes out. Inspired by a certain ‘aquarium’ on the show, these heads can actually be filled with water and lit up when mom comes over for meatloaf. Is it sicker than this Season 2 horror? The only way to tell is by seeing them side by side on your shelf.

Die Hard: 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Collection

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting ready for the next Die Hard movie by working “Yippee ki yay!” into every other sentence I say for the next month. If that’s too much for you, perhaps scooping up the Die Hard: 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Collection ($41) is more your thing. This 5-disc set contains the first four films – Yippee ki yay! (sorry, gotta keep working it in) –  and an all-new bonus disc, “Decoding Die Hard.” A Good Day to Die Hard opens February 14. Yipee ki yay!

Game of Thrones: Season 1 Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Boxset

HBO’s Game of Thrones is one of those shows offers a detailed universe full of rich characters. For those of us who love the show, or who just need more friends, the world is there to explore. This Season 1 Limited Edition Gift Set ($90) delivers all of the first 10 episodes on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital Copy, along with a (non-edible) Dragon Egg paperweight and Season Two bonus Blu-ray. You also get an in-episode guide that provides tons of background info about Thrones’ many characters, so when you befriend an imaginary person, you’ll at least know his/her backstory.

Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Frank Sinatra Bottle

It’s funny how the moment someone you respect endorses a product, it renders that otherwise unwanted object desirable. Okay, maybe it’s not so funny, but it’s similarly true regarding my newfound love for Jack Daniel’s and the Limited Edition Frank Sinatra Bottle ($150). Let’s review: Frank Sinatra was class incarnate, he was a member of the Rat Pack, and he got to sleep next to Ava Gardner for years. Yeah, I respect him, and he didn’t need the first two distinctions either. The ‘Sinatra Select’ has a lustrous appearance, embossed metal shoulder label, and at the neck of the tall-framed bottle, a medallion featuring an icon of Sinatra’s familiar fedora. Here’s looking at you, Ava…I mean Frank.

Prometheus Collector’s Edition Blu-ray

For those of you eagerly awaiting the release of the Disney-produced Star Wars Episode VII, the new Prometheus 4-Disc Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Set ($60) may be a worthy and temporary solution. Now, this is directed to those who have a 3D television, because the 3D Blu-Ray disc only comes in the 4-Disc set. For those of you who don’t, get with it people! This isn’t, whatever, 1979! The fact that this is the same year the film Alien was released is an unintentional coincidence. The set also includes the 2D Blu-Ray, the Blu-Ray bonus disc, and the DVD + Digital copy disc. For the rest of you unfortunate people, get rich friends because there will be no VHS release.

Harold and Kumar Ultimate Blu-ray Collector’s Edition

With co-star Kal Penn working in the Obama administration, you can understand why there haven’t been any Harold & Kumar movies in a while. But cravings for the stoner comedies persist, so here comes Harold & Kumar Ultimate Collector’s Edition to the rescue. Set for a mid-November release, the boxed set will contain Harold & Kumar Go to White CastleHarold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay, and A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas. There should be plenty of extras in the package, but joints are not included. I checked.

Blade Runner 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition

Believe it or not, Harrison Ford turned 70 a couple of weeks ago. 70! Now I don’t mean to pry, but did you get him a gift? If not, consider sending Harrison – or “Harr” as I like to call him – the Blade Runner 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition ($58.49). This swanky gift set includes a spinner car model, 72-page art production book, and UltraViolet copy of the Sci-Fi classic. And since it is the big 7-0, tossing a few Levitra pills in the card wouldn’t hurt either.
