It's worth the frustration for feedback like that.

"The other versions will disappear. Even the 35 million tapes of Star Wars out there won’t last more than 30 or 40 years. A hundred years from now, the only version of the movie that anyone will remember will be the DVD version [of the Special Edition], and you’ll be able to project it on a 20’ by 40’ screen with perfect quality. I think it’s the director’s prerogative, not the studio’s to go back and reinvent a movie." - George Lucas

ESF- these are wonderful, thanks!  However, I can't get the file to open on my iMac.  I'm running OSX 10.6.8.  The .rar file tries to open automatically in iPhoto and doesn't recognize the format.  Are the individual jpegs available?

.rar is the same as a ZIP file.  Use whatever you use to open those kinds of files.

My outlook on life - we’re all on the Hindenburg anyway…no point fighting over the window seat.

download stuffit expander if you dont have it already.  then you'll probably have to set stuffit as the default program for .rar files or you can simply right click on file and select the program manually.

Here are the covers I made based on the official disc art:

They're available for download here. If you select a cover, once it goes full screen you can go to "Options" at the bottom and "Download full size".

The bottom part of the back is a little snarky, but I couldn't help myself. ;-) I'm willing to upload blanks for others to modify if there is demand.

That link just led to a Google+ page - no real download links.

Selecting a picture should bring up an interface that allows you to download the full file. The transition from Picasa to Google Photos isn't working so well. I will get them up elsewhere soon.

Sorry but there's no DL button that I can see and rightclicking the picture doesn't work either. Picture sharing through Google was never great and now with the new look it's totally screwed.

EDIT: Oh, I actually found it, you need to click the little "options" button at the bottom of the page first.

There you go. They're pretty hefty. It's really sad how well one can recreate the official episode titles since they are barely modified Times New Roman. The roman numerals on the disc art are a little more rounded, but close enough for my purposes.

Doubleofivek, I hate to be anal about this, but you have a typo in your ep 5 summary.

"the evil Darth Vader ures young Skywalker into a trap."

Thanks, I copy/pasted them, but then messed with the formatting. Missed that one.

EDIT: Fixed uploaded. and here's a picture of my two. Only printed on an ink jet printer on copy paper, but it's better than blank cases.

That looks good, way better than the official one, I'm considering ditching it and using these instead.

Thanks Harmy, I'd be honored to have provided your covers for the official release! If you or anyone else wants the PSD file to maybe remove my snark or the Ronto Ass, I can upload it somewhere.

A little something I have been playing with... looking to use a 6 disk case and add a slip cover.

Galatians 2: 20: I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Wow, I love it! Seriously. If you allow me, I might just make this the official v2.0 artwork! Though my personal preference would be to use the slipcase for 4 individual boxes with their own covers in this style. Would you please be willing to share your psd files for me to make the individual covers? I'd give you full credit of course.

Thanks!  Means a lot coming from you!  I'll find a way to get these to you.  My choices are limited at work...  I'll PM ya.

Actually the Ronto Ass is the only side-by-side photo I really like.  I think for Empire I'd have chosen a heavily cyanified Hoth shot (I think there's a good one with the probe droid and a walker in your Picasa album), and for Jedi I'd have chosen the Hayden ghost or created one showing Lapti Nek vs. Jedi Rocks, preferably using the ridiculous waggling uvula shot.

I was tempted, but I actually just wanted to show deliberate CG changes from the existing comparisons. I may make alternate even more snarky editions later. ;-)

Beautiful covers, coov!!

Beautiful work as always, Coov.

And I love the idea of having snarky-style covers.  Good work, Frink doubleofive.
