No matching spines = no sale.

Looks like you got you're wish and we're getting gold spines. Unfortunately, we're also getting hideous photoshopped artwork that savagely mocks the classic posters with tacky still shots culled from press kits and costume reference. They missed an opportunity to do something really classy on those covers, but I guess I'm not surprised.

Still looking forward to this as one of my few non-HD/BR disc purchases this year.  :)

Yeah, definitely lame on the photoshopped covers.   >:(

Those are so ******* ugly!!! Why not just throw the UGH logo on there too as long as they're "Limited Editions". Christ.

I will be making my own covers for sure.

I new that Star Wars poster book would come in handy for sumthun'

They look like shoddy fan-made covers. Looks like I, too, shall be making my own covers.

It bugs me that when they use ROTS Vader in OT package materials. For some reason it's just not ok to do. I'm starting to wonder if it might be worth purchasing the OT box set that's out now, and swapping out the SE discs for the #2 discs from the new set into it.  :-\

Covers were cool from far away, but close up they look eww. Good thing I don't buy DVDs for the covers.

Here's a nice comparison someone put together of the new covers, and the theatrical posters they're "paying homage" to:

Yeah, the covers are lame, but in the long run, who cares?  When you're watching Han shoot first, it won't matter.

Looks like poop in a swimming pool... and I care, because it would have been relatively easy to get this right. Alot of fans will prove that by making their own.

Exactly.

I was hoping we'd get artwork similar to this:



Sorry for the lame photo.

Elegant and classy.
