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.

From ROTJ there were scenes of Moff Jerjerrod getting stunned by the Emporer's Royal Guards.  THAT would be pretty awesome to see since all we've ever seen from them was getting knocked into walls by Yoda in ROTS.

I agree. That would be cool.

Actually it seems a lot of people figure that's actually a sequence where Vader's returning to the Death Star and demanding to see Palpatine even though he was ordered to the Command Ship, and Vader's actually forcing-up Jerjerrod in that scene, and the Royal Guards are drawing their weapons on Vader.  It fits with the, "I told you to remain on the command ship" line from Palpy.

Though them torturing Jerjerrod for fun would be an interesting sequence too I guess.  Jerjerrod was to have an expanded role somewhat though.

There's stuff shot of Jerjerrod commanding the Death Star's Super Laser crew during the battle, and ordering them to aim at Endor as a last ditch "F you" to the galaxy, of sorts.  There's pics of him in a command center similar to the one in ANH Tarkin was in when they nuked Alderaan.

ROTJ probably has the most cut stuff out of the entire OT.

Found the dude I was talking about: Sate Pestage

Quote
The character of Sate Pestage, originally called Sate Molock, was meant to appear in the film The Empire Strikes Back. Molock first appeared in the second draft of the film, where he warns Darth Vader that the Emperor is in a bad mood before Vader reports the victory at Hoth. In the revised second draft, Molock was renamed Sate Pestage.

...

However, the film's shooting schedule says that the Pestage scene was shot on June 18, 1979, though it never made it into the movie's final cut. As the scene was filmed, an actor was evidently cast for Pestage, but it is not known who this was. Kenner toys even produced a Star Destroyer playset featuring a toy hologram apparently intended to be Sate Pestage. An enclosed instruction sheet reads, "Darth talks to the Grand Vizier with the pretend viewing screen."

Regardless, it's Vader talking to one of Palpatine's aides, which isn't anything special but it would still be cool to see.

I read there are going to be 45 deleted scenes on the blu-ray set.  The prequel dvds have 21 scenes altogether, so that is 24 scenes to get excited for.

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.

You can pre order on amazon up to the last day before it comes out. If there are any store specials they will likely be published in the Sunday paper ads the week before. I am waiting until at least then so I don't miss out on something that migh be worth a few extra dollars.

Trash Talking Droids

This was already released under Transformers 2. Skids and Mudflap.

Extended Speeder Chase

Extended? Wow! I thought the chase was long enough as it was. Good thing it was chopped down.

The others look pretty cool though. Especially the OT ones. I love that we'll see Veers' fate since it was pretty cool in the book (I think it was Zev though that took him out).

Yeah there's actually stills people THINK are from that scene, but could've just been production stuff.  I can't wait to see that.  Little bummed they didn't list extended Hoth fighting, but the Rebel Raid on the Bunker on Endor is all kinds of awesome IMO.  Really gave the Rebels a little more screentime.
