I have no interest in buying this set...my bootleg versions work just fine.

I'm much more interested in this than in the official versions:

I just hope it gets finished sometime this decade.

Without trying to cost anyone their job, the Anamorphic, cleaned up transefer of the originals are rumored to be on tap for next years SW DVD release. I will work hard on getting a definative answer on this ASAP.

That would be awesome if this turns out to be true.

Ok, about a couple of weeks away now from the September 12 release - I was just curious, how many of us here are actually buying these DVDs?  The anamorphic/etc. issues aside, I was originally planning on getting these - but I've been giving it second thoughts lately.  Now, with the rumors of a big ole box set coming out in 2007 - possibly with deleted scenes, additions, etc. - I'm not sure what I'm going to do.  I was just curious how many of you are planning on picking up the upcoming DVDs in September.

Nope, not going to buy the Sep 12th DVDs.

If I want to see non-anamorphic versions of the original films, I'll just break out the VCR and watch my old tapes...

Not buying, either. 

Probably would have, if Lucasland hadn't have been such buttholes about the whole thing. 

So I'll find a way to get 'em (after all, they probably will be the best-looking versions of the OOT available), and I'll save my money for whatever's coming out next year.

Now that there are strong rumors about a big box set for 2007 probably not.  As much as I'd like to have the originals I'd rather have next year's set even if they do not include them.  Although they would be idiots not to.  But oh well.

Nope, have better things to spend my money on, and my VHS versions still do me just fine.

I'm a sucker, I'll be buying.  I'll likely buy the 2007 set as well ::), but I can't wait that long knowing there's a DVD available for me to see Han shoot first.  Sorry, but that "improvement" that Lucas made in the Special Editions has always pissed me off.

I'm very disappointed the quality won't be what it could (and should) be, but I guess I'm at the point where I'll take what I can get.  I guess I'm always excited to make another Star Wars DVD purchase.

Part of me kind of wants to pick up ANH, but if I buy one I have to buy all three. Bececause they aren't really the set we were hoping for I'm going to pass as well, and just wait until next year.

I see these being the first Star Wars DVDs to drop significantly in value from their original release price with time.  It happens with tons of other movies (most these days) so I'll wait on them and decide down the road.  Or pick them up used or something, but not paying full price for them.  Unless I really like the artwork in person :-X

I'll be passing on these as well. Without improvements to the sound and picture, the VCR tapes I already have are just as good as the DVD's coming out. Now if they clean them up in 07 and add deleted scenes, I may change my mind.

I may have to break out the VHS tapes this weekend.

I bet Lucas won't release the OOT again, so I'm picking them up. I will pick up the '07 set still. I'm a sucker as well!

I might get them if I could send away for a personalized, handwritten apology from Lucas for not releasing them properly, but since they'll be having snowball fights in Hell before that happens, no.

This and a similar thread on RS have convinced me not to buy them either.  I have the Laserdiscs and love them on there, so until we get a clean DVD release with nothing altered except matte lines and clarity, I'm saving my money.
