Are you a fan of the rather memorable collaborations between filmmaker Tim Burton and music man Danny Elfman? Do you possess a good amount of disposable income? If you answered yes to both, then this limited edition behemoth was created just for you!

Below is a portion of the official Warner Bros. press release and video, detailing just what goodies are in store for you should you have the $500 (!) to fork over for this admittedly very cool collectors item (of which only a thousand are being sold).

You can place your pre-order right now over at burtonelfman.com.

This December, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the ingenious collaboration between renowned composer Danny Elfman and legendary film director Tim Burton, Warner Bros. Records will release The Danny Elfman & Tim Burton 25th Anniversary Music Box, a very special limited-edition, numbered box set of 1000 that collects expansions of the 13 original scores that Elfman has composed for Burtons iconic films: a newly produced library of 16 CDs each packaged with artwork by Burton, adding up to more than 19 hours of music. Additionally, the package will contain a bonus DVD of a recent exclusive conversation between Elfman and Burton discussing every film and score in their remarkable quarter century collaboration.

This elaborate and lovingly designed collectible box set includes the first-time-ever soundtrack release of Pee-Wees Big Adventure (1985), as well as scores to the films Beetlejuice (1988), Batman (1989), Edward Scissorhands (1990), Batman Returns (1992), The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), Mars Attacks! (1986), Sleepy Hollow (1999), Planet of the Apes (2001), Big Fish (2003), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), Corpse Bride (2005), and Alice in Wonderland (2010). It also includes music from Elfman and Burtons numerous other collaborations: Alfred Hitchcock Presents: The Jar, Amazing Stories: Family Dog, Beetlejuice: The Animated Series, The World of Stainboy, Tim Burtons Museum of Modern Art Exhibit and Danny Elfmans unused score to the Edward Scissorhands Ballet.

My 2nd favorite director/composer relationship, after Spielberg/John Williams. I wish I had $500 for this. As for the extra tidbit: Batman Returns, which has a Batman meets Edward Scissorhands feel to it.
