FX from the prequels let me know if you guys have noticed this as well thanks

Lowry Digital really goofed up a lot of the Lightsabres in the classic trilogy for the DVD's. I think of all the movies, the Return of the Jedi lightsabers still look and sound the best (notice how much closer the Episode I sabers are to them than II and III).

Not to mention Vader's saber appearing pink or orange in several shots throughout the new DVD's!

for all the effort they put in with everything else you'd think someone wouldve picked up on this!
