Worst Indiana Jones scene turned into $174.99 collectible

Correct us if we're wrong, but aren't collectible figurines supposed to commemorate our favorite moments in our favorite films? Then how to explain this: Sideshow Collectible's limited-edition figure from Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, memorializing what is widely considered the most preposterous scene in the movie.

You know what we're talking about: The scene in which Indy takes refuge in a lead-lined refrigerator to escape a nuclear blast, gets rolled around the desert and emerges without a scratch to see a mushroom cloud blossoming above him as radioactive fallout gently floats to earth? We smell George Lucas' influence.

Anyway, if you had $174.99 lying around, you could have jumped on this at the official Web site, but it's too late now: All 600 of them are sold out.
