Is it the laserdisc version on MySpleen or were these ever released on DVD or something?

Released on laser and VHS only. Harmy has a 720p recreation, I think.

Highest quality versions would be the SD broadcast rips, I believe?

Team Blu upscaled the broadcast rip of ANH to 720p. Last year they said the other two were coming soon, but there hasn’t been an update in quite a while.

That is not true because they were also released on VCD.

VCD’s are SD only. As far as I know, G’kar and TB (and Revivax for ANH) are only in widescreen SD… 480p, and even then not full DVD quality. Upscaling them doesn’t do much. I’ve tried. You can coax a little more out of them, but not 720p (though presenting in at that resolution does produce the best results, it still isn’t DVD quality).

Right before Adywan’s Empire Strikes Back Revisited dropped he released a 1080p version of the '97 SE for Empire. It’s an mkv and it isn’t cropped for blu-ray, so you’d have to re-crop it yourself. I got it and converted the file using tsmuxer and burned it to a disc. It played fine but it wasn’t letterboxed, the picture stretched all across the screen where the black bars would be. I found a guide to help rectify the issue but I haven’t gotten around to it myself.

For Return of the Jedi I just used a LD rip, slightly saturated the colors and added a slight amount of contrast and the DVD turned out great. Good luck!
