I wonder if a new user name strategy would be in order…not very stealthy sticking a “1” at the end of everything.

I am very tempted by the idea of professional looking Media. But it also feels wrong to allow consumerism the be tacked on to something that starts out so free.

It’s sort of like Harmy applied a copy-left license to despecialized, and it applies to all derivative products as well. So having anyone contribute in a commercial way violates that.

That’s just my thoughts​. Of course Harmy didn’t apply a copy-left license to despecialized. And I don’t think this actually violates anything in the letter of the law. But for me, I think it does violate the spirit of the law.

Thanks for the insight. I had not looked at it that way. If the majority of the community feels likewise, I will tell my contact that the project is a no-go and ask that the thread be locked. So if others feel that this violates the spirit of the project, please let me know here or via PM and I will take appropriate action. Thanks!

And as far as those people who may still want to purchase something like this from this individual directly, you may be all means contact him and conduct your own private transaction.

So community, what say you?

I think it’s a great idea you are doing here mate - and hope it comes off and does well - and yes, I’d be interested too 😃

Yet I also see where Dhamage is coming from and agree with it too… plus half the fun is knocking up your own stuff at times - no matter had bad it may be at first (I’m referring to my stuff here 😉) and then trying to improve upon it.

It may be an idea to get ‘the ok’ from Harmy? - or njvc too IF the boxes/and covers etc will feature some of his work as well?

Good luck with it mate - again, it’s just my two penneth, but think this is a great idea, nice one!

 

edit - ps, like darthrush says above - I don’t we should be paying for the films themselves, just paying for the boxes, covers and slipcovers and postcards etc

pps - those are truly beautiful looking sets you posted mate 😃

Thanks! And you are right, there will no discs included with any set; the guy doesn’t have any discs himself, he just sells the sets and then the buyer adds their own discs.

And coming from a 007 fan such as yourself, I appreciate the feedback.

I have actually never met the man…I saw his work on Bluray.com and contacted him about buying his Bond set and I asked him if he could do some custom work for me, and he agreed. He printed out the full slip cases, re-sized to fit Criterion cases, a booklet and a set of the Manga style posters for my box set.

Full Slip for Skyfall; Spectre set with character cards ^^

Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace sets ^^

Interior of Casino and Quantum ^^

Despecialized slips ^^

Thanks for the input. I think that some level of collaboration is certainly welcome and would lend itself to greater input from the community in terms of the final product. Personally, I really like the DIY stuff, mine included, but I think it is fair to say that I would also like to have something commercially produced.

As far the the mouse house, there would be no advertising and no other customers and boxes/sets would be disc free of course…maybe a group buy strictly for the OT community, something of that nature.

I am not quite sure where to begin this conversation, but I figured this was as good a place as any. I have been following the Lucasfilm updates on the OT release, or lack thereof really, and unfortunately it does not appear that we will be seeing anything significant any time soon. So, in light of this, is there any interest among the community for a professionally produced box set for Harmys’ versions?

I have been talking with a guy who produces custom made Digi-packs and he would be able to and is interested in making something for the Star Wars community but would need to know if there is any interest. They would be customize-able to a certain point and could consist of steel books or Digi packs, art cards, mini posters or whatever the community would like. But of course, the more extra materials means a higher price.

I know that one of the driving forces behind these boards is creativity combined with a love of Star Wars in its original, unmolested form, hence the number of DIY box sets, but I also see a desire to have something commercially produced.

The guy making these products is totally independent and I profit in no way from any of this, I am simply trying to gauge interest on our behalf. Of course logistics like shipping and so fourth would have to be worked out, but what do you think, anybody interested?

Quick jedit:

***no discs of any kind will be included if a group buy happens. You will only receive empty materials to which you will add your own discs. I repeat, no discs are going to be made available, only printed materials!

This concludes our public service announcement.

Anyone else want to admit their faults in arguing with me? I assure you, I am blameless.

In all seriousness, don’t stress it. I remember that too, but it’s long gone. I don’t hold grudges. My biggest spat was probably with Bingowings, and I’m not angry with him anymore, either. I hope we can have a friendly relationship once again. I’m hardly around, so it probably makes it easier for those who have a hard time with me.

I am pretty sure when we have a serious row, it will be my own damn fault.

Home made pasta sauce on three day aged pizza dough topped with mozzarella and baked to a crisp, bubbly perfection. Imagine my surprise when my family also expected to get a slice…

I’m about as conservative as you can get…but still rational enough to know that trump is a crazy, foul mouthed hooligan who gives respectable foul mouthed hooligans a bad name…

Apologies in advance for wading into political waters.

Star Wars Despecialized Editions - Custom Bluray Set

ronwlim said:

I went ahead and made myself a set. It has cost me about 125+ to make with professional printing, buying criterion cases, the blank blu-rays, etc… I asked ronwlim here on the site to see if he could make the same box set that he has produced and he quoted me $200. So to ask for $200 isn’t that unreasonable.

I think your post is misleading.

You forgot to mention that I was only selling the bluray cases and the box set I designed. I specifically said it did not include the discs. I’ve also been quite clear that the price is only so high because the boxes are a pain in the ass to make, so I price it high as both a deterent for you to buy, worthwhile for me to make and encouragement for you to DIY, since I’ve made all my files available for free.

-Ron

Great point Ron. And in the end, it is up to the individual how much they are willing to spend to DIY their own set, whether printed at home or professionally. Personally, I know I spent a few extra bucks just in trial and error, but I wanted something that looked legit, so I was willing to spent a bit extra. The passion and creativity of this community are some of its greatest assets and the variety of projects demonstrates this beautifully.

Having said that, those Ebay sets could cost a quarter and the seller could spin their intent any way they like, but in the end, it is still a clear violation of the rules and puts the very projects we care about in harm’s way.

Nope, you didn’t fix it for me. I believe there is truth in most (if not all) religions and they are worthy of admiration and respect, but my religious background was Christian and the teachings of Jesus still resonate particularly strongly for me.

I was raised in a Catholic family … my Nana was like the Polish Family Mafia Leader, LOL, but she was awesome!!!

Sounds like a legit Polish Babcia. Did she ever tell you ‘Bądz cicho!’?

It’s a shame these threads have all just turned into torrent / invite request threads. There is no actual discussion content anymore.

Not that this post helps… I just want to complain 😃.

Yes mate - a bit of a kicker that.

I imagine many of us pop in a few of these quality threads from time to time - seeing the thread has been bumped - thinking there may be some new additions to the work, or a new alternative take, or that it has inspired someone to do something similar, or perhaps that the techniques and software used are now easier to compile our own versions of njvc’s great work, or just a good conversation on the topic at hand etc…

but no… it’s yet another ‘can I have a link’ post…

doh!

That is a top post if I ever saw one…hits the nail on the proverbial head. As I mentioned previously, I find it very ironic that a vast number of those posts usually begin with “I have searched everywhere…”, but yet in all of the searching, no one can seem to find the invite request thread…strange.
