Like Scott, I've ordered a bunch of stuff from these guys (although not as much as rebeltrader
), and I've been very happy with them:
- Star Wars Trilogy (original)
- Star Wars Trilogy: Special Edition
- Indiana Jones Trilogy
- Schindler's List
- The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (screener) (several copies)
(And, also like Scott, I got a set of the "homemade" DVD covers from that guy--and they are quite handsome looking, as DVD covers go.)
Be prepared for your order to take a week or two (or three), since they're coming from Malaysia, but this is a very legit bootlegging operation (how's that for an oxymoron?).
Also about the OT discs, the sound is off on ESB by a millisecond or so which is very annoying and the sound screen is also off on ROTJ for the first 15 minutes or so. The ANH disc is pretty much flawless though
Well, this new listing could be for totally new versions, though, which I believe I called for somewhere in that monstrous thread at Rebelscum a long time ago.
Not even considering the lip-sync issue, those old discs were taken from the "Definitive Collection" laserdiscs (1993), and while they were relatively great for extras, the 1995 THX remastered lasers are much better--and in fact, the '95 lasers are still the best looking versions of the original trilogy you can get today (sad, isn't it?).
Hopefully, what the bootleggers have done, is made totally new discs, transferred from the '95 lasers, for the best possible picture and sound. This would clear up the lip-sync issue, too. If they could add the extras from the Definitive Collection lasers (things like all the old trailers--like the Revenge of the Jedi trailer featuring Luke with a blue lightsaber on the skiff)--that would be gravy.
But, this all remains to be seen. I'll wait for the word to come in from whoever gets these first, and if they're "new", I'm game. If they're the same as the ones from last year, forget about it.
Still, it's good to see that they've got the originals back up.
