    Just wondering: who were you channeling there? Playschool, Bart Simpson, Peeves or Gollum?
    [face_laugh]

    I voted buying the New Zealand verion, but it might be more like the Chinese one when I get there next year. The DVDs that I currently have are Chinese market ones (flat cardboard covers and no extras - but worth every cent of the one dollar we paid!) but I'm going to get the boxed set here before we go then stick the untainted Chinese covers over the top!:D

    It does seem a little... excessive

    [image=http://www.ezydvd.com.au/g/i/p/780285.jpg]

    Other thoughts inspired by this pic are 'hard to miss' and 'OH DEAR GOD WHAT IS THAT'

    Personally I would have gone with something a little smaller. If they want to create some sort of colour recognition, why not have a blue (or appropriate colour) band at the top or bottom of the slick, rather than something that obscures the artwork.

    indeed. Or making the traditional M or PG different colours.

    I hate the government.

    perhaps they should get People who enjoy film and collect dvds to WORK FOR THE OFLC!!!!!!

    yeah, I was looking through the DVD selection at JB hifi today and discovered that R gets Black. Black! It's still large and beefy, but the colour doesn't try to rip your eyeballs out with vinegar and rusty nails!

    Hmm... vinegar and rusty nails... I might have to visit those folks at the OFLC and see what they think of that...

    besides, isn't blue a calming colour? shouldn't it be a dangerous type, to 'warn' people away? :p MA, for example, is red. And I did notice the R rating, at least those are kinda safe ;)

    After I'm done shooting down innocent bystanders, i'm going to buy it. But being an obsessive nerd (who can get discount DVD's ;) ) i'm RE-buying the DVD's, with big blue ratings so RotS doesnt stand out in my collection. The prequels are being re-released on December 17th, with big blue ratings along with the OT boxset with blue rating and without the bonus features DVD.

    Except that only AOTC and ROTS, being M15, have the blue logo... the others all have a lovely, PG, bright yellow logo.

    Uh.... No-one... uh.... Note the *moan* at the end. I was just spieling nonsense. ;) But you can think that I was channeling all of them. :p




    Everyone's making such a big deal. Sure, the sticker is quite noticable. That's the point. Why are you so afraid of it? You'll get used to it in time, just like anything else.

    Will you post a very public, very humble apology to MSE-6 when you're pwned?

    When I'm owned? Ha.
    I never said he was wrong, or even remotely implied that. I simply said I don't trust anything unless it's directly from Fox...and the source he posted wasn't.
    So uhm, why would I be getting owned?
    Oh and l33t speak isn't cool by the way.

    Also, I didn't realise that you had to apologise to someone for not agreeing with them.
