Everyone loves Scarface, right? Who among us hasn’t had one too many lemonades and yelled the immortal line, “Say hello to my little friend!!” whilst firing an air-shotgun?
It’s a great film, and one that should be owned for both spontaneous enjoyment and for the education of future generations.
So when Amazon emailed us advertising the gorgeous new Scarface Limited Edition, we were understandably a wee bit excited. Here’s the product description:
“Inspired by the modern-day classic from acclaimed director Brian De Palma (Carlito’s Way) and Oscar-winning writer Oliver Stone (Born on the Fourth of July), the Limited Edition Scarface Humidor is handcrafted by the world renowned Daniel Marshall for the ultimate collector and cigar enthusiast. A decadent collector’s item limited to only 1,000 pieces worldwide, it pays tribute to Academy Award winner Al Pacino’s (The Godfather) stunning portrayal of Tony “Scarface” Montana, one of the most ruthless gangsters ever depicted on film.”
And there’s more:
“The humidor’s exterior is hand painted and polished with Marshall’s trademark “”1000″” coat brilliant finish, and its interior is made of untreated Spanish cedar complete with an analog hygrometer, guaranteed to properly condition and age approximately 100 cigars at optimal humidity levels. Expertly fitted with brass hinges in exemplary Daniel Marshall style and embellished with a custom medallion inspired by the iconic film, each humidor carries a numbered plaque, a certificate of authenticity with the designer’s signature, and the Limited Edition Scarface Blu-ray encased in collectible SteelBook packaging with a digital copy of the film, a DVD of the 1932 version of Scarface plus 10 original art cards. The action-packed Blu-ray features an all-new eye-popping remastered picture, explosive 7.1 audio track and never-before-seen bonus features.”
It sounds very decadent, doesn’t it? A functioning humidor, a steel-cased blu-ray packed with all the features – sounds like a must-have for any cigar loving Scarface fan. And with 30% off at Amazon it’s a steal at just $699.99…
No, that’s not a typo and yes, you read it right; the discounted price is $699.99, making the original sale price of this item a cool $1000!
Really, what you’re buying here is a functioning humidor from a master craftsman, oh, and let’s throw in a Scarface DVD for free. Let’s be honest, you’d have to REALLY love Scarface to spend that kind of money on a special edition.
It’s a good film. No, it’s an excellent film – but it’s not $1000 good.
