Did anyone notice in one of the documentaries, the one about the evolution of Darth Vader, that they show the scene of Yoda in Episode I where he gives his speech about fear being a path to the darkside, but Yoda is pure CG and not the puppet?

Is that a hint for an extended edition of the films that MaCullum pointed out in the Delete Scenes intros?

I went to three different Wal*Marts today after work, looking for the DVD w/Bonus Disc and BattleFront 2. I got ****. Nothing. All 3 Wal*Marts were sold out of the bonus disc, and BF2, and not one of them even had the figure packs.

**** WAL*MART.

YOU SUCK.

I saw that too. It took a second to sink in after I saw it, I recognized the lines from TPM but the scene was different. That is one change I'm glad they made, I wasn't a fan of the EP1 Yoda puppet.

Picked up mine today, thankfully Target were having a 15% off sale so i nabbed it for $28aussie.
Question did u guys in the US get the slip cases we got?
I dont remember hearing about it for the previous releases


The dvd covers are the same , its just that the first batches from Target and Kmart here came with those cool cases.
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Very nice, Hemish.  I haven't heard of or seen those in Canada though.  You've got a very unique set there.

Awesome cases! Too bad we never got those. :'(

I picked it up last nite at Best Buy, just the plain set (WS of course). The litho was almost enough to make me break down and sign up for Rewards Zone ... if I'd had an extra $10 to throw around I probably would've caved. I also thought about getting the Target version for the bonus coin, but I realized the last thing I need is another extra piece of collectible crap lying around. ::)

Last night I watched the movie and about half the bonus features. I'm holding off on the Saga mega-marathon until Clone Wars Volume II comes out and I can throw both of those in there. Sometime during Christmas break sounds like a good time to set aside an entire day for it....

Last night I sat on the couch, watched ROTS and opened a dozen or so ROTS figures.  Does it really get any better?   ;)

Watched the DVD last night and I was amazed that I had never seen when Palp's shuttle is returning to what I assume is Kamino that it is accompied by initial tie fighters! Man, I would like to see those up close.

That's not Kamino; it's just Coruscant in the rain.

And they're not actually TIE fighters--they're V-wings, which are sort of like a cross between the Jedi starfighters and TIEs.
