So, who's buying?

Apparently, Lucas couldn't resist even more tinkering (not all of these are confirmed):

* Obi Wan now has a different scream when scaring off the Sand People.
* Wicket blinks.
* Jabba's palace door is bigger.
* TIE fighters added to ROTJ Death Star battle.
* Phantom Menace puppet Yoda replaced by CG Yoda.
* Vader will now do two NOOOOOOOOOO!s when Luke is being electrocuted by the Emperor.
* More 'surprises'







I'm still gonna buy them.

I've already bought this fucking trilogy four times -- three times on video, and once on DVD -- and I've seen all the movies twice in the theater. George should be shipping me the Blu-Rays free of charge for as much money as he's gotten out of me.

I'm really beyond caring at this point, but I still have to wonder why. Why spend anymore money modifying them when they will sell anyway. It's a waste of money for changes nobody asked for.

Also does it look like some of the Tie fighters just pop out of nowhere?

Twice on VHS and twice on DVD. I don't think I'll ever part with the DVDs with the original, un-screwed-with versions in the 'bonus features.' It's not a bonus. It's the only reason I bought the movies again.

* The entire prequel trilogy has been replaced with movies based on Timothy Zahn's Heir to the Empire trilogy, with the original cast reprising their roles and Robert Patrick as Grand Admiral Thrawn.

I bought the original trilogy once.

On laser disc.

For a penny each when I joined the Columbia House Laser Disc Club.

I just realized I haven't watched the movies in years. (showed it to my kids when they were small. Laser Disc player is now long gone.)

I still have the original trilogy (and I mean the original trilogy, before George decided that he hated his fans) on VHS. I don't even have a way to watch them anymore, but I can't bring myself to get rid of them.

I've debated getting these, too, just so I can have the original versions of the movie on DVD. If I do wind up doing that, though, it will be through Half.com, so I don't have to give George any money for that transaction.

3 times on VHS and 2 on DVD. I will not buy the Blu Ray version. I'm done as well. I have the unscrewed with version on DVD, and I'll stick with that for the rest of my life.

I wish the unscrewed with version was anamorphic though. Maybe if the Blu Ray had anamorphic original versions i would buy it,,, ah crap.

Agreed. When I saw the Phantom Menace I wondered how the new puppet looked shittier than a pupped produced ~20 years ago.

More changes:

* Princess Leia in metal bikini re-shot with 2011 Carrie Fisher.
* Storm trooper blasters replaced with walkie-talkies.
* Overdub of droid buying scene wherein Luke refers to R5-D4 as "Skippy" -- "Skippy has a bad motivator. Look."
* Shark fin and Jaws music added to garbage compactor scene.
* Greedo shoots at, takes a swing at, throws a chair at, and finally attempts to run Han Solo over with a Land Speeder before Han realizes he has no choice but to defend himself and begrudgingly shoots him. Afterward, Han weeps.
* Running gag at the beginning of Empire Strikes Back - "Hoth enough for ya?"

I found myself trying to determine if the original theatrical versions were somehow hidden on the Blu-Rays. Goddammit.

I mean, even if they are, they're probably still going to be the crappy transfer versions that were on the DVD release back in 2006. Do we really need that in high-definition?
