I would kill someone, infront of their own mother to get one of those g5's @_@.

Actually I heard that they weren't happy with the video and still wanted more time to work on it due to the fact that the earlier the work the harder it was to "upgrade" the video. Especially with A New Hope. Return of the Jedi on the other hand is supposed to look near Episode 1 quality.
