All I want to know about this version is:

Who shoots first?

vote-for6vote-against

greedo, this set is the crappy remakes.

Unfortunately, Lucas is determined to eliminate all evidence of the original theatrical versions.

He has said before that they will not re-release them in any form. :|

I guess I'm stuck with my VHS tapes. The kids need to be taught the truth.

@robbiezr1: Revisionist would have us believe it wasn't HAN. But he was first a bad-asz smuggler that took no crap. HE SHOT FIRST and rightly so. It was self defense, rebel style.

@zetalidan: If you want to see the theatrical release, get the DVD's from netflix. You have to do a little digging to find them, but they're there. The 'poster' image gives it away.

@robbiezr1: Really, the question should be "Did Greedo shoot?" 'Cause in the original, he didn't shoot at all.

So really, the question should be "Why, Lucas? Why."

@samjung23: He has a Quato growing in his throat that tells him to do bad things.

Wah wah wah wah..."we don't like the remakes"... just shut up and don't buy them!

I can't wait until my blu-ray's get here!

@camiot: Maybe I will by the next box set when it comes out in the next year or two but for now I am happy with my DVDs with the theatrical versions.

PS I signed in just to give you a minus.

@ivatak: This complete saga set has three disks of bonus features, not available when buying the sagas seperately. Deleted scenes, behind the scenes footage, making of documentaries.

@camiot maybe 14 year old me was cool with the updated re-releases, but NOW? No. Seeing late 1990's CGI aliens layered over top early 1980's video just looks childish. And don't even get me started on that insanely stupid song and dance number in Jabba's palace in Return of the Jedi. God awful.

@ivatak: So what you're saying is even if you're OK with the remakes, you'll still save $45.49 since nobody's going to buy Episodes 1-3 anyway?

Don't buy this -- IT'S A TRAP!!!

These are not the movies you are looking for

Pretty sure I all ready have this movie series on media?

Everyone who bitches about Greedo shooting first think of it this way, if Han shoots first he is a murderer. If Greedo shoots first Han was forced into defending himself. Personally I'd rather root for someone defending himself, rather than a murderer.

@prezgar: Thats Lucas being an ass to those of us who hated the prequels.

As far as I know, there hasn't been any official word whether Greedo shoots first in this version.

Yes, in the 1997 and 2004 SEs, he did, but there have been changes made to this version as well.

I am a huge Star Wars fan, but I really don't get why everyone is so mad about changes. Its not like Lucas changed it so the Death Star didn't blow up, or so Luke turned to the dark side. He added scenes he thought would tell the story better in his opinion. As for Greedo, he changed a scene to make more sense after missing a key point in the original, which tends to happen a bit when making a groundbreaking at the time movie that nobody believed would work. Last time I checked its his stuff! Get off your high nerd horses people. If u are so upset, don't buy it. I for one will buy it, as everything looks better on my flat screen and projector in blu_ray.

Don't buy from Overstock!!! ... any other seller else and I might be in for one

The problem with the added CGI is that it just looks intrusive in the original trilogy. Real models made the movies look real(sorry for the alliteration.) Adding things just because you can do more now doesn't really make it better. Did Coppola add more actors to the background of Connie's wedding just because the technology is now able? The added CGI looks so painfully forced; the Family Guy jokes in "IT's a Trap" are perfect.

@genaldar: he was defending himself, he was being held at gunpoint and about to be dragged back to a gangster who's MO is feeding people to his pet Rancor. i'd have shot first in that scenario too. I still have the original untampered with VHS tapes (with no way to watch them). I'd love to have them on Blu ray but not unless they are the originals with no crappy half assed CGI.

vote-for3vote-against

@genaldar: Stop being an idiot.

He starts out as a thug mercenary that would shoot first and transitions into the type of hero that steps into the carbonite chamber to help his friends.

That's who I am rooting for.
