One of these three will be chosen to be the box design. If the pictures go down, someone tell me.

Those all look pretty cool.

I have to say, though, the last one is my favorite

2nd and 3rd are great. First one's ok.

They all look pretty cool, but my vote goes to 2.

For that reason alone they shouldn't use #2. Though it may look more appealing to the eye. Then again knowing Lucas, he went back in and re-did all the Yoda shots and made him all CG.

Where is that in AOTC. I think they just made that shot for the cover. Neither the Luke nor Vader is an actual shot from any movie.

The Luke pic looks like a modified pic of Luke from Jabbas Sail Barge. The Vader looks like vader from Cloud City when he reaches out to Luke telling Luke he should join him. They just added a saber to his outreached arm and added legs.

lol, you're right...the Vader pic is the most rediculous looking...wow...so weird...there are tons of good vader pics to edit...why try that one? Strange.

I personally like the first...but I figure the third will take it...

I wouldn't mind seeing them have the original artwork on the cases. (you know...the one with the massive Luke and the stripping Leia)

I think the second one is by far the worst.

Also, that Yoda picture is from episode II. They even used it on their main page and in posters.

I'm afraid the Peterson brothers have you on this one, Mr. Guy.

The "Imperial Collection" one is by far my favorite. "Jedi vs Darkside" is pathetic-looking in my opinion, and too flashy for my tastes. "Final Conflict" is alright; it reminds me of the VHS box set of the Special Edition.

why isent there a 6 pack?

so when 3 releash on dvd you can put it in the box...

I don't like the second one, mainly because of the CG Yoda, but between the first and third, I'd have to say I like the first best, since this is the Imperial Era. It's like, when we have both trilogies, it'll be in a sort of timleline: Republic Era, Imperial Era.

03-03-2004, 07:10 PM
I'm between 3 and 1, while leaning to 3. Since I despise C-3PO...

Alright, i submit, but i still like it. Just because it has a CG Yoda doesn't make it terrible.

03-03-2004, 09:48 PM
Yes it does! :D Keep the originals original!

Not really. I don't see anywhere on the box where it says all the shots are from the OT. What does it matter? It's not like some big lie or scam. CG or puppet, OT or Prequels, it's still the same character.

03-04-2004, 07:18 PM
False Advertising :D

Ah I see lots of purists!

#1. I just like the Imperial Cover more then Vader's big face.

I have heard, I think it was on theforce.net, that these boxes were just test art and that A) the real cover art will not be any of these and B) that we will find out what it is soon.

Now, please understand that this was several days ago I saw it, so I may be incorrect on this & it may also be LA trying to throw us off. :D

folks, welcome to the wonderful world of merchandising.
Of course a 6-DVD box will happen in the future. Heck, I'd even bet it will be 8 or even 10 discs then.
It's all about making you buy multiple versions of something you only need once.

As for the pix; they are confirmed to be test versions. As such, I'd put my money on the Imperial one any time.

I saw on starwars.com today that hyperspace members get a chance to view the official packaging now! There is a pic & it has the corner of the dvd & you can see the grill & side-bar-thngy of Vader's helmet. Can someone w/ an account go view & verify the it is similar to no 3 above (of course, don't get yourself in trouble w/ LA when doing so)?

03-20-2004, 09:45 AM
yes if seen it and its non of the 3 above :D

You can't link to HP pics. :(

Fortunately, I'm a sneaky bassid! :)


The widescreen is silver like that and the fullscreen is gold, from what I understand. I could be way off.

Here, I found the Fullscreen edition picture. :)

Sweeeeeeeeeet! :D :D :D

I really wish they'd make the widescreen the gold one, though

oh well, either way it looks awesome!

03-21-2004, 12:08 AM
Yeah, but I think that's keeping with the wide/ full-screen color schemes of past SW box sets. When the SE VCR box sets came out they offered them in two different sets, gold and silver depending on full frame pan-and-scan, or letterboxed.

Darth Homer

Yes, I have the vhs SE and if I'm not mistaken I have the widescreen & it is golden

it has been sometime since I've hooked up my vcr, much less gotten out any of my tapes, but as I am moving to a new apartment, I'll have to keep my eye out for it

03-21-2004, 12:47 PM
I have the SE pan & scan ( :( I didn't buy it...) and it's the Gold set.

I'm pretty sure the widescreen was always silver.

Yes, I see I stand..err..sit corrected. I haven't found my vhs copy, but from your link, it is pretty plain that you were correct. I tip my hat to you, sir! :tophat1:

03-24-2004, 12:19 AM
Wow, that last box set is perfect. The top 3 have nothing on the all silver/gold.

Nice find Rhett.

I only know this because I have the WRONG set,.. and it's the gold one. I always go widescreen whenever possible.

Why I never got around to exchanging this set when my mom bought it for me I'll never know.

I won't make that mistake again with the DVD set,.. I'll tell ya!

hmmm, I think we each have the gold set for the exact same reasons then! :eek:

I too shall own the widescreen dvds!!
