    Hi Folks,

    Just did the online poll at Star Wars.com asking which version of Ep2 I would buy. The results were quite encouraging.

    Special edition VHS 12%
    Full Screen DVD 14%
    Widescreen DVD 62%
    All 3 12%

    Who would buy all 3 three must be out of there minds.

    I wonder why SW fans would buy FS. All fans of LOTR are buying WS.

    I voted. WS is up to 63% now! [​IMG]
    I notice WS has a "good" green lightsaber meter, and FS has an "evil" red lightsaber meter. [​IMG]

    I just voted for the WS DVD. Current results: 12% VHS, 15% P&S DVD, 63% WS DVD, 10% "all three."
    I wish that were actually true, but... for all that I expect the WS FotR disc to outsell the FS, I'll be very surprised if the FS disc doesn't show up in the Top 10 chart for the week of release. Sad, really.

    My WS vote is in as well.
    However when you get to the poll results with the varying lightsaber lengths I keep hearing this line in my head:
    "I see your schwarz is as big as mine..." [​IMG]

    Are you guys sure you're voting? I went there and voted, but in some small print when the results came up were the words "you have to be registered to vote" where you'd normally see "thank you for voting", so I don't think my vote counted. Are you guys registered there, or am I misunderstanding the line?

    You do have to register, but it's free. Doesn't take long at all.

    Some of the responses to the previous polls scare me.
    I think some of the fans are missing the *point* of these movies.
    EDIT: Back on topic, of course I voted for the WS DVD [​IMG]

    Am I to understand Fox is actually considering a P&S version of AotC? I wonder why? Have they had a bunch of returns of the tPM disc due to WS?
