@brian: But isn't this release in your wish list? :P Most the of the extras for the prequels & originals are thin in content. More like very brief interviews, and way too much time spent on viewing the concept art on a timecode. In other words, the two commentaries for each film account for roughly 26hrs of the 40hrs of extras, and the doc*mentaries "Star Wars Tech" (46 minutes) "Star Wars Spoofs" (97 minutes), "Star Warriors" (84 minutes), "ESB SPFX" (48 minutes), "Classic Creatures: ROTJ" (48 minutes), "Making of Star Wars" (49 minutes), "Conversation with the Masters" (25 minutes), and "Anatomy of a Dewback" (26 minutes) amounts to 423 minutes [7hrs 3min]. The 3 "making of" doc*mentaries for IV V VI are vintage by the way. All were released in the film's respective release year. So those were cool. The spoofs seemed to be wasted space. The Dewback thing was an reexamination of the 1997 overhaul, and the masters conversation relating to ESB was great. Oh, and "Star Warriors" refers to the 501st Legion of fans and follows how they promote charities, fundraisers, and star wars around the world. "Empire of Dreams" is excluded, as are the 3 featurettes from the 2004 trilogy release. None of the 39 webisodes from the prequels are there, nor are the great prequel related doc*mentaries. Episode III looks excellent, like you're back in the theater. IV V VI aren't bad either, besides the changes. Very few made for V, and in fact, only color corrections and bloopers are corrected (like the wampa puppet master's arm being visible), so V is still pretty intact. The rock R2 hides behind in IV is pointless, as is Jabba's enlarged front door in VI. The new Krayt call is hilarious, but too electronic than organic like it used to be. Digital blinking ewok eyes in VI, and digital Yoda in I, but those last 2 aren't horrible. The worst is Vader screaming "NNOO." You could read that 2 ways, 1) reading Vader's mind, or 2) Vader says it aloud which therefore shoulda garnered a reaction from Palpatine. Worst change ever overall. Besides that, the set isn't too bad. But they easily coulda fit those doc*mentaries from the 2004 trilogy release, and prequel trilogy release on their respective discs. That minus the unnecessary changes woulda made for the perfect release. Till the next one (hopefully not), the diehards out there have the 1977/1980,1983 theatrical versions which were released on dvd in 2007 or 2008 as a "special 2nd disc feature" on the individual IV V VI releases.
