    Well, I like 95% of teh changes. I can't believe that they can make teh images better than they looked in teh SEs (except for teh rancor scene which still looked weird), but those shots of teh DVD versions look great. And I'm so glad they fixed Obi-Wan's malfuctioning lightsaber, as well as that shot of Vader's lightsaber without effects. I also like how [hl=black]they stuck Naboo in teh celebration at teh end![/hl] There's really only one change I don't like, since it doesn't really make sense. I mean, [hl=black]if Hayden's ghost shows up when he dies, why doesn't Ewan's ghost show up?!?[/hl]

    I've blackened out things some might consider spoilers about teh DVD changes.

    [edit: I added "teh"s]

    I think most of the changes are pretty sweet. Welcome to day t minus 26 days until Star Wars on DVD.

    By the way, like I stated in another thread...just like I didnt see the new footage of Jabba I have not seen the new scene with Vader and the Emporer from The Empire Strikes Back. And let me tell you, for not seeing that scene it was pretty sweet! New dialouge and ian and JEJ doing the voices! Woot, woot.

    When does the Star Wars DVDs come out, because you can rent them on Netflix now!


    [edit: When you click add, it adds them to your queue, but under availability, it says "September 21st" Netflix is a total tease!]

    Have any of you thought of contacting Best Buy or Media Play to see if they'd be willing to do an event for this with you? It's a chance to get into costume, to promote Fandom, recruit for your group (and for the Rebel Legion!) and to have fun, of course!

    Hi, sorry. Leah from Denver. Base Commander Mountain Base Rebel Legion. We're holding out event at the Westminster Media Play, the 501st chapter here has theirs at a more southern Media Play. Good times planned.

    I held several of the box sets in my hands yesterday at work.....we're puttin 'em into little packages....if any of you saw what bestbuy did when the passion of the christ was released.....we were selling it for 11 bucks if you signed up for 8 weeks of entertainment weekly (free) and 8 weeks of sports illustrated (free) we're doing something similar with Star Wars :-D but not for 11 bucks....but cheaper than anywhere else will have it i'm sure.

    well with the price they're selling them for with the 2 free 8 week subscriptions is probably cheaper than what i could get it for with my discount because passion of the christ was being sold for cheaper than what my discount would get me really.
