The real rebellion against the Blu Rays would be buying the Lady Antebellum CD because you'd be buying a CD...  who does that?

I just bought 3 CDs last week...  :'(

Peter Griffin tweaked Citizen Kane.

And my CD of The Black Hole soundtrack by John Barry is in the mail from Intrada.  Buying CD's doesn't happen near as often as I'd like, actually.

That deleted scene had all the breadth of a Bantha and just about as much smarm.

If Lucas wants to keep tinkering with the old movies, why not just do a modern reboot with Zac Efron or whoever's popular with the teen girls these days.

No, no, no.  Zac Efron was soooooooo yesterday.  Justin Bieber is the only way to go now :)

I will still be buying up the Blu-Rays.  The "Vader No" scene has actually grown on me a bit the past few days.  Besides I have the unaltered ones on DVD from the "extras" during the last release.  Which buy the way I watched over the weekend to see Greedo shoot first and the Death Stars blow up without halos.  I had forgotten about the brown cloud under Luke's Landspeeder.  Fun stuff.  I don't know why Lucas just does not add that into the Blu-Ray extras?  Oh well. 

I know.  I know.  Burn me at the stake for lining Lucas' pockets...blah...blah...blah.  I probably will go for the Target Lithograph. If nothing else the Complete Saga is the cheapest I have seen so far at $80.

I agree completely.  I've got the unaltered versions on DVD from the last release.  I've also got a couple different versions on VHS still.  And Adywan's version of ANH as well.  I'll wait to judge changes & additions until I actually watch the films when I get them.

And I'd swear I'd signed up here a while back.  Odd.

I thought you had too JC (nice to see you again).

I'm a big Adywan proponent...  For me, that guy's made the definitive ANH.  I can't wait for ESB edit and ROTJ edit to hit.

The way his eyes move contemplatively...  Outstanding.  Instead of looking like he's hopped up on coke.

I think the Yoda replacement in EP1 is really the only "improvement" I would agree with. I wonder if they will have just EP1 on DVD with the CG Yoda. That would be a worthly upgrade.

I am wondering if CGI Yoda is the only improvements in the Prequel side of the saga.

CGI Yoda does look a lot more "Like Yoda" than the Episode I puppet.  But in the scene with Obi-Wan there are some weird things going on with the lighting and the depth of field.
