Not a Special Edition change but something caught my attention tonight. Ive recently been doing some VHS digitizing and recently digitized my 1995 ‘Faces’ set and was watching a DVD I did of the ESB tape and I noticed something. At one point during the TIE Fighter/Falcon chase in the asteroid field I noticed that for a brief point of the chase the fighters laser blasts were blue. I thought 'weren’t those supposed to be green??". I went and checked a DVD I burnt of my 1992 VHS and sure enough green laser blasts. I then thought “maybe this was a change for the 1993/‘GOUT’ master??” since the ‘Faces’ set uses those masters. Went and checked my GOUT DVD and believe it or not GREEN laser blasts. So I thought “huh so for the VHS master they changed them to blue?? Strange but interesting.”

For comparison here’s some shots from the GOUT.

Anyways just found this interesting. I can’t comment on the Laserdisc versions since I dont own them nor have a player for them. I do have the Widescreen ‘Faces’ set but its at my other place. Maybe one of these days I’ll check that set too.
