It’s DVDuesday, which means that Chris Gore was all over the release of Lionsgate’s Terminator 2 Skynet Edition, which diehard fans can also purchase in a limited collector’s edition contained in a realistic Endoskull. I don’t know how I feel about having a metal skull with glowing red eyes staring at me in my living room, but we’re totally adding this DVD edition to the list of the most creative packages ever.
And then there was the “Ultimate Edition” of Iron Man whose special case was modeled after Tony Stark’s helmet. Fortunately, this version came with a clear plastic cover that allowed you to file the DVD nicely with the rest of your collection.
The entire series of the original Battlestar Galactica is available in a special edition “Cylon Head” package though it looks more like a DVD case than an actual robot head you can show off to your friends (and try to wear).
Even I Robot put together a full-scale replica of the “Sonny Head,” which nicely included a small slot in the back for the actual discs. Cute and creepy!
Last but not least is the Book of the Dead collection of Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2, whose DVDs were (surprise surprise) encased in a replication of the actual Book of the Dead.
