Retail exclusives for Indy’s Crystal Skull includes Sideshow quality work

Today, Lucasfilm and Paramount released the worldwide box office blockbuster Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull on DVD and Blu-ray. With this release comes five fun and collectible retail exclusives. The highlight of these collectible goodies, is a replica of the crystal skull itself, from noted figure and memorabilia company Sideshow Collectibles, which is available at Best Buy.

I hope the studios make a habit of creating value-added bonuses like this for their DVD and Blu-rays. I was personally turned off when companies stopped including those beautifully designed booklets that they used to include in most DVDs of larger films. They contained a wealth of information about the included project, and added something to the ownership value of the DVD, as a more than just a product, but almost made you feel you were getting a piece of film history. It didn’t stop me from getting DVDs I wanted completely, but it wasn’t nearly as exciting as it was previously.

Anyway, the entire list of exclusive goodness is listed below.
