Yeah, it's a little underwhelming.  Looks like 3x features - one video, one super-detail prop pic, and one concept art piece - for each of the six movies.  Some neat stuff, but not as much as I was hoping for...

Cool, but are they going to be embedded in the films like the extended pod racing scene in tpm, or will it just be 45 seconds of the scenes we have seen grainy versions of already on YouTube? I am assuming that they will just be the clips on a separate disc, but seeing how I have purchased the ot movies at lest five times already. It would be nice to have the original releases, special editions, and vault editions with all of the deleted scenes added in, for example the waterfall scene from tpm that was edited for time and the magically hey look what we found scenes for the bluray release scenes. I would like to own these, but you know the 3d versions will be coming out a year at a time, and then in a special even better bluray/ 3d box set. If they wanted me to pull the tigger on this I think they need to go even more all out. Because if lucasfilm has taught me anything, if you wait you can spend h same amount of money or less later on and get even more. Someone please post an argument to buy these that will stand up iron clad to my wife's response of " you do not need another copy of those movies"

Some of that stuff looked amazing, esp the Wampa shots. Hell yeah.

But why do those cut scenes LOOK so bad? It's like they filmed them all through a dirty shotglass on the worst quality film they could find.

I don't see why they can't use all the amazing technology that gives Bruce Willis the appearance of hair in his movies to actually make these resemble something other than a 1970's public school filmstrip.

I had to go back again because I missed the wampa the first time chasing r2. I have to admit it looks more like a dark crystal character than a wampa.
 I guess mr. Lucas was not kidding when he did the special edition restoration that if he waited any longer the film would have been beyond repair. All it is missing, for anyone old enough, is the 4,3,2...at the beginning and I would have thought I was sitting on the gym floor. ;D
Great stuff.

So are they editing these scenes back in the movies or just special features?  Kinda dig the sandstorm scene when they're about to enter the Falcon for some reason.

I guess due to the quality no...so ya nevermind.

These will probably be extra feature and not edited back into the film.

I recall reading a comment from Mark Hammill that he has no recollection of shooting that lightsaber construction scene for ROTJ.

Definitely liking the Mon Cal A-Wing pilot though.  Very cool!

Hmmm.  They're only showing OT deleted scenes.  Would they actually go back and do the Droid Control Ship sequence from AOTC?

Well they went back and finished the Yoda lands on Dagobah scene for the ROTS DVD, so hopefully they will.

And man, that teaser has me even more pumped for the set.

Does anybody know if they filmed any ESB scenes with Vader and Palpatine's secretary? I can't remember his name but they mention him on the vintage Star Destroyer Playset. I think Vader talks to him via hologram before he speaks to Palpy. If they did, it'd be cool to see those make the BR.
