    Mmmm, fullscreen. Bah, er, I mean... [​IMG]
    I must say, the 'Saga' billing is a bit odd given that's the general reference given to all 6 movies these days...

    Even if I were a full screen person, I would rather purchase them in seperate cases.

    EDIT: Unless...... is that a slip-cover with the two individual cases inside?

    And they might as well announce that they will have a 123 bundle and then a 123456 bundle after that.

    Why don't you just contribute some money to the Lucas Estate, by purchasing E1 WS, E2 WS, E3 WS, Saga 2-Pack FS, Saga 3-Pack FS, and Saga 3-Pack WS.
    I mean...that's what a real fan would do. [​IMG]

    I have to admit that I'm kind of surprised that Lucas would allow full screen versions to be released. After all, these films are supposed to be his babies. He claims that he's making changes to the original trilogy in order to improve them and make them the best they can be, yet he's willing to mutilate his own cinematography by throwing away 40% of the image. Where is his artistic integrity now?

    I'm going to roll over laughing in 5 years when HDTVs are commonplace and inexpensive, 4:3 is just about dead, and all of the people who whined about widescreen start whining about pillarboxing. Have fun replacing your DVD library!

    BOOO for the fullscreen only. Not to mention that its a pretty dumb idea in the first place.

    While it sucks that the boxed set is P&S only, it's probably because they figure all the widescreen fans bought the TPM disc when it first came out, and will thus pick up the seperate AOTC widescreen disc when it comes out.

    Whatever people held out for a TPM release with "None of them there black bars" will be the only ones who'd get value out of such a set.

    I can't believe this will really come to stores. It doesn't look real. Ewww, said me. The box is missing Episodes III-VI however. Scary stuff indeed. Will there be two or four discs inside?

    WARNING

    Let's be a little more professional in this forum.
    I don't like the fact that we are calling people
    who buy full screen product "losers".
    I don't want to see this sort of post here again.
    Thank You
