    Yahoo has a trailer up for the HD versions of these. Kinda odd they'd release a trailer now when the films are 3+ months away from streeting.

    In the meantime I've been buying up the United Cutlery Swords of these films. Four down, another auction closing tomorrow.

    I maintain that the theatrical versions are ultimately better films than the EE's; though there is tons of stuff in the EE's that I love, there's also a bit that just feels wrong. I watch them about equally.

    So my hesitation with these isn't that they're the theatricals, I without a doubt need to own those, it's that with Blu Ray technology I assume the eventual EE release will include the theatricals as well.

    Who am I kidding, I'm going to buy these. I'm the king of movie repurchasing anyway (I have bought four different editions of Blade Runner, ferchrissakes).

    We can be fairly sure that won't happen (unless the EE release is many many years from now, which we can also be fairly sure won't happen) ,simply because that would cost them sales of this existing set.
