I still don't have a Blue Ray player and after hearing about the tinkering, I'm no longer tempted to look into getting one.

Don't care about Ewok eyes or saber colors, but I utterly reject any changes that actually impact the plot or original continuity.

I never want to see Hayden Jackoff in ANYTHING OT. To quote the Simpsons " You ruined everything! Ruiner!"

You cannot add the NOOOO to that scene in ROTJ, it detracts from the overall emotional impact of that scene, which was perfect as it existed originally.

And I will never, ever let that Han shoots first thing go. Single worst thing Lucas has ever done in his entire professional career. THEY DID NOT SHOOT AT THE SAME TIME! Dude just does not get it.

F-these sets if Han doesn't shoot first.

I disagree - if anything, I think they should make more changes to the OT -

- forget that iconic furenal pyre at the end of Jedi, I want to see Vader live and put on the sweet white armor!
- forget the heroic escape from doom, I want to see Wedge, Lando, and the Falcon go up in flames with DS2!
- forget Han shoots first, let's swap out the guns for cell phones and Han can just sneak away when Greedo is distracted by his ringing phone!
- forget Luke's one-in-a-millon shot to blow up DS1, swap in bumbling X-Wing Pilot JarJar Binks who accidentally makes the shot instead!
- forget Jedi Luke's lame convoluted rescue plot, lets get the goddamned Batman into the picture to rescue Carbonite Han!

Wow.  I guess, knowing George, we all expected more changes here and there to some extent - but I'm kind of surprised with some of these.  Honestly, I don't think I'd mind changes/insertions/etc. to the prequels, but like many others, I sort of wish he'd just leave the OT alone at this point.  Like Jesse mentioned earlier, if anything - add ships to the space battles or things like that.  I guess I don't mind things like a dug in the back of Jabba's Palace or things like that, but the new "no" line in ROTJ, the blinking ewoks, etc. just seem unnecessary.

I'm almost surprised (although there hasn't really been news on the PT) that we aren't seeing some CW characters get inserted into those movies in some way (Ahsoka, Cad Bane, or just one of the other species in the background).  Like I said, I don't mind him changing things here and there in the PT as much - and some places (like the Coruscant Night Club for instance) could use more interesting aliens I think.  I wonder if there will be even more changes for the 3D releases, or if it will be the same as these.  I've always given George the benefit of the doubt, but if this new "no" scene is in ROTJ - after all the jokes about the ROTS one - it almost seems like he's trying to get fans worked up.

Any word/rumors on free goodies stores might be giving out on release day? I'd rather pre-order from Amazon but I'm holding out to see if there's anything good at retail.

Buy any of the Blu-rays at Walmart and you'll also take home a poster of this gorgeous and not-at-all-ridiculous Star Wars artwork.

Is Lucas going to turn these movies into comedies  ???  I'm going to be pissed if I see JarJar ANYWHERE in the OT

It sure seems like the store exclusives this time around have been lame or non-existant.  Maybe we will see something else closer to release, but all I've heard of so far is film cell things and this artwork.  It seems like building this up as one of the biggest blu ray releases so far would merit some sort of spiffy packaging or bonus.  I've got one preordered on Amazon, but if one of the local stores can come closer to the same price I'll probably just buy it there.  So far, nothing I've heard of sounds too great though.

These are hardly confirmed. I grain of salt, perhaps?

On Wednesday, a press representative for Lucasfilm confirmed that this change will be included in the Blu-ray release, writing in an email: “Yes—Darth says NO.”

I hope it is not true about Hayden's face when Luke takes off Vader's Mask.  One of the greatest scenes SW saga is now ruined with one little word. ugh :'(
