I asked Garth_Maul if it was OK to talk about this stuff and he said yes, and to create a new thread for it, so here we go. As it happens, Amazon, in their eagerness to make good on their release day delivery, wound up delivering my copy of the Blu-Ray edition yesterday afternoon. As the topic says this is a spoiler thread so if you want to be surprised on Tuesday, you might want to turn around. My initial impressions (and again, this is regarding the Blu-Ray edition): The Production Journal: Of course the big plus for me was that it's not permanently attached to the case, although I do plan to keep it there when I'm not looking at it. The sketches inside are pretty good and there's a very brief note from Dave Filoni about the cover art he drew and where they got alot of their inspiration from when making season 2. While I'm not going to detail every drawing, my more favorite ones include a portrait drawing of Bossk, Aurra Sing, and Boba Fett posing for the "camera" on the bridge of Slave 1, a panoramic concept drawing of the Coruscant Underworld, and a drawing of Barriss and Ahsoka wedged inside that supertank from "Weapons Factory" after it caved in around them. The Discs: I have to confess, I'm kind of disappointed in the menu system. Whereas with the movie and the first season they had an active video background of clips from the show, this menu uses a single static shot of Yoda on the silver background next to the series title. The menu system itself, though, is the same, and everything is in the same places as before. I kind of miss having a featurette for every single episode, but the ones they've done for the various arcs are, I think, longer, to make up for it. I think people are especially going to be interested in watching the one on Mandalore. Dave talks more about Jango Fett in that one and the line from "The Mandalore Plot" that drove everyone nuts. If you look through the "Jedi Archives" on each disc, aside from production art there are deleted scenes. Many of them, though, are layout quality prior to finished rendering, but they still have dialog. There are some production quality scenes, though, with completed dialog, they're just missing background music. BTW, Dave, if you happen to read this. You look fine without the hat...but please wear the hat more often. We like the hat. All in all, I'm happy with it. Any disappointments are more than easily made up for by the presentation of the episodes and the extras available. Anyone else get this early? Let's talk about it!
