Um, if we're getting the original movies, why is the first box still marked Episode IV, A New Hope?

Isn't the whole point of this exercise to get us to buy the original - OT on DVD?  I know the remasters are coming with it, but shouldn't it just be called Star Wars? 

Been following the DVD thread at all?

They're selling the 2004 versions.  The original versions are just "bonus features."

It's Lucas' little childish way of getting around the whole "the originals are dead to me" thing.

Oh.

Wasn't following the DVD thread I'm afraid, so I'd deluded myself into thinking this was a release of the originals, not a re-release of the 2004s with bonus stuff ::)  Childish indeed.

Incidentally, are these supposed to hit at around the same time as the new DVDs? If so, I've been keeping up with the thread but haven't heard any dates- does anyone know when that might be?

I know not many are excited about these sets, but that just makes me slightly more hopeful I'll find them :) I really could use all of these figures in one way or another, and $10 wouldn't be bad for three, much less four, figures, especially ones I want.

In any case, since these are low-interest, old stuff, and not part of the main line, will they still be reported on JD when they hit stores or anything? Or maybe on the forums rather than the main page news?

These always come out the day of a DVD release (if not a few days earlier in some cases) and sometimes they can be a real bitch to track down at certain WM's.

You can count on it.  :)

Just a reminder that these Box Sets are rumored to be available next week at Wal-Mart, priced around $10 each...

I'm going to get one of the ROTJ sets, and customize the Emperor into another UGP senator.  I still need a VOTC C-3PO.

I couldn't any more uninterested in these. Sadly, if I see 'em, I'll probably pick them up. :(

Too bad the Stormie is Commtech. It would be worth it if it was VOTC. But then Id have a ****load of Bespin Hans and Chewies.

These are great for kids - my son is missing a lot of the main characters so I might pick a couple up.

Anyone seen these yet?
The Force is strong in this one,... too bad his action figure sucks.

I expected to see these today, but I have a feeling they're packed with the DVD's in a display.

I saw these today.  No where near the toy or movie section. They were on a center island display near the garden center ??? Left them all for some other sap. The only differece I could see was that Palpatine's face was a different color.
