    Ready for the most expensive soundtrack collection ever? For a mere 500 bucks, you too can have one of 1,000 copies of the Tim Burton / Danny Elfman 25th Anniversary Music Box. Not only are there 16 CDs, but the box is actually a tin music box, and the lid can be opened to reveal a working zoetrope. There’s a bonus interview DVD, a 200+ page book, and a USB “skeleton key” with MP3s of all the music on the CDs.

    Disc 1: Pee Wee’s Big Adventure
    Disc 2: Beetlejuice
    Disc 3: Batman (with different unreleased material than the La-La Land 2CD version released at Comic Con)
    Disc 4: Edward Scissorhands
    Disc 5: Batman Returns
    Disc 6: The Nightmare Before Christmas
    Disc 7: Mars Attacks!
    Disc 8: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
    Disc 9: Planet Of The Apes
    Disc 10: Big Fish
    Disc 11: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
    Disc 12: Corpse Bride
    Disc 13: Alice in Wonderland
    Discs 14-16: demos, bonus tracks, orchestra-only versions

    It’s being published by Warner Bros. Music directly; looks like they suddenly want some of the action that the little boutique soundtrack labels have been getting (several of these scores have been released in expanded editions, i.e. Batman, by the small soundtrack labels recently). Each disc’s cover artwork is hand-drawn by Burton.

    Hint: a $500 price tag is not how to get some of that action, guys.

    $500 or no $500, the drool is starting to pool.

    I like the zoetrope box, that’s a really interesting touch, but I honestly can hardly remember any of the music from those films, only half of which I’ve watched. The Batman soundtrack sticks out in my mind the most, and the other memories are just a mish-mash of Elfman’s frenetic ‘oompa’ music. The only thing in the set that interests me is the case it comes in.

    This still hasn’t arrived on the doorstep of anyone who’s ordered it, due largely to engineering issues with the box. :wait:

    #10997

    So, the halftime score:

    1. Customers’ credit cards / debit cards / etc. have been charged for $500 + shipping.

    2. Customers have been informed of a delay that will push the release date back into March.

    3. PROFIT! 😆

    I’m not sure what’s gonna ship first, this box set or the Pandora! 😛
