I don’t see that I’ve commented on this before.

Ep VII Blu-ray/DVD/Digital
Ep VIII blu-ray/DVD/Digital
Rogue One Blu-ray/DVD/Digital
Solo Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital

And I expect
Ep IX Blu-ray/DVD/Digital
18 disc Blu-ray saga set

why do you buy this 3 times as bluray,dvd and download??
weird…

I didn’t buy those three times. I bought the BR/DVD/Digital set. Slightly more than the BR/Digital set, but a lot less than they are in 4K (which I have no use for). Now, much earlier in my list, I did buy the same thing in multiple formats, sometimes 3 times (the OT Faces set and the OT SE set). I did buy the BR/DVD version of the two trilogy box sets just because I wanted the 5.1 surround from the DVD (which is not on the BR). Probably weird, but there is usually a reason.

Weird that you’ve apparently never come across a Blu-Ray bundled with a DVD and a digital download code…they’re extremely common (though including a DVD is becoming significantly less common).

Captainsolo, You forgot you have the 97SE on Laserdisc, and the 2011 set in the background of your videos is actually the 2015.

Doh! You’re right can’t believe I forgot the SE LD box. That was actually the first major LD purchase I ever made back in about 2009 or so along with You Only Live Twice and The Spy Who Loved Me.
The 2015 BD release is much better than the 2011 because of the slim box and an actual case. I need to track down a ROTS BD copy to complete it.

I have:

VHS - '95 Trilogy THX Edition, '97 Trilogy Special Edition
DVD - '04 Trilogy, Episode I, Episode II, Episode III, '06 Episode IV, '06 Episode V, '06 Episode VI
Blu-ray - 2011 The Complete Saga, Episode VII, Episode VIII, Episode IX (pre-ordered), Rogue One, Solo
Ultra HD - The Skywalker Saga (pre-ordered)

When my girlfriend moved in, she had the Prequel Trilogy on Blu-ray, the Original Trilogy on DVD and The Force Awakens on Blu-ray. She keeps her collection separate from mine. I bought her copies of The Last Jedi and Rogue One for Christmas last year and will get her The Rise of Skywalker and Solo for Christmas this year. She likes having her own collection.

the ones I have bought …1992 Special Collectors edition widescreen VHS set , I plopped down 120 bucks for it after seeing it in Suncoast Motion Picture Company and it was the first time I saw the film in widescreen outside of the times I saw them in the theater . I had the pan and scan tapes beginning in 1987 after they were given to me in clear plastic cases from someone I knew who ran a small video rental store and got extra copies of the tapes…1997 special edition pan and scan gold box set …2000 Vhs Box set Pan and scan because it was cheap and I liked the packaging . 2004 DVD silver box set .All three of the Walmart exclusive GOUT with the comic adaptations . The widescreen vhs collectors edition of TPM . The DVD of TPM ( it was my first dvd and I bought my first dvd player with it , an APEX which I still have) AOTC widescreen DVD , ROTS Widescreen DVD TFA blu ray ,TLJ blu ray and a friend bought my a basic blu ray player with the 2015 blu ray box set as a gift that year.I also bought the 95 faces vhs pan and scan box for 10 bucks from a dear departed friend in 2010.

I’ve bought them pretty much as many times as anyone on here. But my first version of Star Wars was taped off the TV. This was waaaaay back when buying a VHS tape of SW was more or less impossible and certainly out of my financial bounds. My Mum (who I didn’t live with) arranged for someone with awesome TV reception to tape the film and edit the ads out as it played. This was a wonderful surprise Xmas gift and very much a prized possession. I wish I still had it…

The Target-Exclusive 4 Disc version of Rise of Skywalker has been preordered and will arrive soon.

Here goes:

  • Three different UK VHS editions of the original trilogy. I can’t remember if the first set was pan and scan but the second one was widescreen with a dark colour scheme and silver lettering. Unfortunately I fell for the hype around the final, THX release of the OT editions and sold the black VHS tapes - big mistake. The THX tapes had dreadful, smeary noise reduction.

  • ‘Exclusive’ box set of the OT SE DVDs from a UK record store chain that doesn’t exist anymore (MVC maybe, not sure). The discs were not unique but they came in a decent quality black card box. Still have that, plus the separate prequel DVDs.

  • ‘Complete Saga’ blu-ray box, with the painting on the front. Does anyone know who did that, by the way?

  • First issue blu-ray discs for the sequel trilogy (Ep. IX on the way), Solo (4k) and Rogue One.

A really sturdy and beautifully crafted box - it now houses my Despecialized Edition blu rays.

A shame about MVC - they often did some intriguing content and extras like that box. Decent prices too 😃

I find that answer vague and unconvincing.

That’s the one 😃

HMV have the occasional UK exclusive. There is one at the moment for 1917, and they had some great steelbooks for Blade Runner 2049. Zavvi have some interesting stuff too.

Can’t wait to get my hands on the next version of Despecialized.

  • 1996 VHS of the OT (Norwegian release). 1999 thrift purchase, and the only copies I have left from my childhood.
  • 1999 VHS of TPM (Norwegian release).
  • 2002 VHS of AOTC (Norwegian release). By the time ROTS was released I was old enough to be disillusioned by the PT so I never bothered to get a copy.
  • 2004 DVD set of the OT SE (Norwegian release). Only OT set I bought when it was new, and I mostly just bought it for the bonus features disc.
  • 1997 VHS set of the OT SE (UK release). Thrift buy just for the sake of having it in the collection.
  • 2015 Blu-ray set of the OT SE (Norwegian release). Only got it for the sake of getting the despecialized editions.
  • plus Blu-rays of all the new films as they were released.

(BTW. I just now noticed the little “1130” code at the bottom of my 1996 ANH tape and now its really bothering me. What a missed opportunity.)
