After reading the responses to my comment about a I-IX boxset, I think it’s more likely they release the films individually and, at the very least, make each OT movie its own two-disc set.

This probably the only way they’ll get my money. They’ve waited too long and I’m too happy with the fan restorations I’ve got.
I don’t want any version of the SE or PT and I will not buy things I don’t want to get the small part I do want.

It’s more the principle of the thing at this point. The OOT should be officially restored if for no other reason than that it’s part of our cultural heritage. Lucasfilm (and possibly Fox) is the only possessor of higher quality sources like interpositives, separation masters, and the o-neg itself. Therefore, we shouldn’t have to settle for even the best possible fan restoration when it could look and sound even better.

Oh, I totally agree.
I’m just sayin’ that if they are expecting all the OUT fans to buy a big box full of movies they don’t like, they’ve waited too long for me.
If they do release each film separately (doubt it) or an OUT set (doubt that too) then I’ll bite. But that’s the only way they’re ever getting any money outta me.

Pretty much agree with this.

As part of a lawsuit for the release of President Trump’s visitor logs, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), the National Security Archive and the Knight First Amendment Institute were today scheduled to receive the visitor logs for President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort for the dates 1/20/17-3/8/17. Instead, the government turned over a list of 22 names from the Japanese Prime Minister’s trip. They can be accessed at the links below.

The lawsuit for the release of the White House visitor logs remains ongoing. In 2009, the Obama administration settled four lawsuits from CREW by agreeing to regularly release the White House visitor logs.

CREW Executive Director Noah Bookbinder issued the following statement:

“After waiting months for a response to our request for comprehensive visitor logs from the President’s multiple visits to Mar-a-Lago and having the government ask for a last minute extension, today we received 22 names from the Japanese Prime Minister’s visit to Mar-a-Lago and nothing else. The government does not believe that they need to release any further Mar-a-Lago visitor records. We vehemently disagree. The government seriously misrepresented their intentions to both us and the court. This was spitting in the eye of transparency. We will be fighting this in court.”

What the hell is Trump trying to hide?
