    I like to know if there is any difference in the THX "Faces" discs that were sold as a box set and as individuals?

    Also were these actually sold as individuals or are people just breaking them up to get more money for each disc?

    Please don't just send me a link to the SW video timeline I can't get it to load. Does anyone know if the link changed?

    The "Faces" versions were sold individually - never as a box set. They are the essentially the same transfer as the Defintive Collection, but are CLV instead of CAV.

    First off, the time timeline isn't down, the link was changed to this:
    http://www.davisdvd.com/Miscellaneou..._directory.htm
    Second, there was a VHS "faces" set, but no LD set, so Alan and Philip are correct.

    But...they weren't sold as a set. You could buy each of them separately at the same time...but that does not a set make...as Yoda might say.


    *sigh*

    They were only available separately...never as a boxed set...never bundled...never tied...or any other way you look at it.

    If I'm not mistaken, in addition to CAV/CLV difference I believe the Definitive box set also had commentary by Lucas over a number of chapters on the analog tracks.
