I liked the prequel extra about the boga with the guy who designed him saying he pretends that the Boga survives even though George said he dies... the main problem with the prequel extras for me is, animatics just aren't as fun to watch as Mark Hamill trying to swing a lightsabre with yoda on his back...

Man that Cut Scene Wampa is laughably bad...I always loved the Wampa toy as a youngling and I can sort of see how the toy and the Wampa in the cut scenes are related.  The SE Wampa is way better :P

Hehe, yeah he's so bad he's almost cute.  I like his goofy eyes.

So it took me a while, but I bought the Star Wars Saga on Blu Ray today...  The sale at Target was my inspiration, and I took the ad to Best Buy for a price match, as I had $20 in rewards points I needed to use this year anyway, and figured why not now? 

So for $65, I walked away with the Blu Ray editions of the movies.

They're definitely worth owning, to me, for that price...  $99.99 though, no.  Having them now (and hooking up the Blu Ray player I got for Xmas just tonight as well), I really appreciate them for what they are...  They're really gorgeous, vivid flicks, fun to watch, and so I'm really happy I have them, but the $100 pricetag was iffy to me.

$65 is a lot easier to take, and I'm happy to have them and hope maybe next weekend to watch them a little more.  I watched some of the extras tonight.  The Luke Tosche Station scene, even though it was already out there, really is a TON better watched on a big assed TV...  I got a 60" 1080p thanks to Sprry's suggestion a couple years back, and I was really floored how even the rough looking deleted stuff popped out, and the hyper detail you see on some of the characters and sets.

If making a Tosche Station diorama was on your mind, you really need these BR's and a big assed TV to help you on your way.

I didn't watch everything, but what I did check out is great, and I cannot wait to see the rest of the bonus stuff and just chill out watching the films over time.  I had a lot of fun with this tonight. :)

I like the quality of these releases, and I wish they could have brought over all the stuff from the existing DVD (pet peeve of mine when they don't do that).  The thing that annoys me most on these is the super-clunky menus.  It is all so slow and cumbersome, just to try and be flashy.  I find them annoying.

They do seem slow to me, but I'm ok with that stuff and like flashy I guess.  Maybe they're trying to entertain the guy like me that doesn't know any better?  :D

I opened my set when I first got it back in...what September?  Still have yet to view any of the discs though.   :-\   $80 ain't too bad at Target.  I think I paid $90 and got the lithographs with the set.

That's a sweet deal.  This is the most up-to-date version with all the bonus material, right?
