That's a good deal... but is another set coming out in 8 months? Tired of furnishing Lucas's house! :)

Not really a good deal. The 3 episode box sets (one for IV/V/VI, and one for I/II/III) are $39.99 on Blu-Ray...picked up one at Walmart, then saw the same price at Best Buy.

@scooley01: if only those would come down about $5 I'd buy the originals at least... I already own them on VHS and DVD.

@scooley01: Thanks for the info... Looks like I'll get I-III on blue-ray as I have IV-VI! (I got this set as a gift, guess I'll take it back and make $40!)

everyone is getting mad about the re-release in 3d in theaters but im looking forward to it. im no hardcore starwars geek by any means but i dont think 3d is really worth it unless its in theaters and i think that these movies will greatly benefit from the enhancement. as it stands 1, 2, and 3 are visual masterpieces and 4, 5, and 6 leave something to be desired in comparison. I think that the 3d will put them all on about the same level

@pukitiki: visually that may be true, 1-3 v 4-6, but 1-3 were so completely garbage that it doesnt even matter. the saga has some of the worst movies ive ever seen, 2+3, and some of the best, 4+5. i dont care if i never see 1-3 ever again.

@scooley01: True, but this set includes a large amount of bonus material that is not included in the individual trilogy sets.

@scooley01: The 3-disc sets contain only the movies. This is the 9-disc set with 6 movies, plus 3 discs of deleted scenes, documentaries, etc.

Blah, blah, blah. Insert obligatory "prequel trilogy sucks/Lucas shouldn't have altered the originals" comments. Rinse, repeat. Jeez, that's getting old.

In for one. I was planning on seeing them all in 3D, but then thought I'd just save and use that money toward this box set. This beats Walmart's price by $10, not to mention tax.

@bige1970: agreed...I don't know why we love debating this...I think it gets old.
Also, this isn't even really on sale -- I know I've seen them for cheaper -- this is about what I paid when I pre-ordered them...

@scooley01: You do realize the complete saga is normally 89.99 and comes with tons of extras right? So your "deal" doesn't really stack up to this one.

@pukitiki: 3D sucks until it is glasses free

Personally I think the revisionism is fascinating. I consider myself a traditionalist, but only on the important things; the idea of George Lucas losing sleep over non-blinking Ewoks makes me laugh. But at some point you have to let it go and move on. In that respect I actually feel bad for Lucas, like he's become a slave of his own creation. The only solace I have is that he's pretty old; there's only so much time left for him to tweak it any further.

As much as Star Wars geeks complain about all of the changes that Lucas makes, they all seem to skip over the solution. STOP BUYING INTO IT! If you don't like the changes, then stop feeding him more and more money.

I would still want to buy this just for the beautiful cover art.
