You know, when consumers are unhappy with a companies choices, the strongest way to make their unhappiness known is to vote with their dollars. Petitions are great but if you have already gone out and pre-ordered the special edition DVD set, you are not doing anything to encourage Lucasfilm or Fox to release the original versions that we all obviously want to see. Don’t buy the DVD’s until they have the original releases on them. Write to Fox and Lucasfilm and let them know that you are not going to buy Star Wars DVD’s until the original, award winning, box office record setting versions are released. Unless you withhold your money from them, all the petition signing and letter writing we do will not get their attention. We are the Star Wars customer base and have some commercial power to wield if we show some solidarity. I have e-mailed this suggestion to every Star Wars geek I know and suggest you do the same to reach those that haven’t found this site.
I know you want all that extra geek stuff on the other discs, but you can get them from netflix to hold you over until the originals are released.
I look forward to seeing you all in line the day the original DVD set is released.
