    I ended up using the "weapon holder" from the scenery list to grab the skull and let it drop to the floor. I could then just pick it up at my leisure. Use the LT to tilt/rotate the weapon holder so that the shiny end points at the skull and it will pick it up so that you can then move it around. Just pull it off the ledge and let it fall to the ground.

    For those of us who aren't fully versed on all the Halo lore, etc... I'll say this plainly so that you don't have to go hunting for the answer like I did.

    In order to get all 6 of the Vidmaster Challenge: Brainpan skulls, *all you need* is Halo: ODST. I'm saying this so that you know you don't have to buy the Mythic pack for Halo 3. ODST has those maps on the second disc, and those maps do contain the 3 skulls from Halo 3.

    So in other words, if you have ODST, you can get all 6 skulls, including this one, on the multiplayer disc (very, very easily, and get yourself a quick 175 GS in under an hour), or you can use Halo with the two Mythic packs. All of the skulls are available in both places.

    As far as this skull goes, the way that I just got it is by flying up on the left, looking at the skull to see that I was lined up, tilting the camera up, and then very quick hitting the d-pad-up-and-then-a-split-second-later hitting RB. It should work. It was the tilting the camera up that I think worked. Gave me an extra millisecond. ;-)
