The 4 disc Special Features set has case and disc art, although the cover is for an oversized case. That's why I posted my single case version.

I'm posting all of the ED trilogy art to absw right now...

Does that include the Star Wars v1.0 (Monomix) disc? I ask because I'm reconstructing it as I type.

Every time I reconstruct a cover from a scan the original pops up. Grr. Anyone have any covers for me to reconstruct that aren't gonna show up as soon as I start working on 'em?

No, that one is not included. I don't think anyone here has that cover file. If someone has it they're not sharing...

Okay, cool. Well I'll keep going then. I've kept it as exact to the scan as possible. Except for one small change. I've currently added the Editdroid logo. If you guys want me to leave that off the final version just let me know.

One thing though... why is there a barcode on this scan? Is it the retail barcode for the official SW DVD and meant as a joke or what? I don't think the ED team would sell their discs, surely. Anyway, should I include the barcode in the reconstruction?

Sorry about that. Thanks Klokwerk!

I was actually was going to recommend the EditDroid logo as an addition there.

The EditDroid guys (if I remember correctly) wanted the set to look like a retail release since there wasn't one at the time. Hence the bar code. I wonder what it was from?

Well I've cleaned up the barcode to leave on there, then. Unless the search I've just done on google is wrong... then that is the UPC for a Philips 50" Widescreen TV (Model: 50P8341).

The only thing that's holding me back now are the 3 framed images. I don't have them :/ Plus I can't seem to find the "X-Wing vs TIE" image nor the shot of Tatooine (at least not in that quality). Anyone want to help out? At the moment I have cleaned-up, upsized versions of everything from the scan - I'd like to use better quality though. The color on the front poster art could also be debated.

Okay the issue with my reconstruction at the moment is that I don't have several images used on the cover. So I've cleaned them up from the scan. Hopefully some hi-res versions can be supplied so I can make this cover reconstruction the best quality. Here is what I'm missing:
* X-Wing vs TIE shot from the top of the back cover
* Tatooine shot from the bottom of the back cover (somebody told me that this is from that news article about a Tatooine-like planet, if so - is there a hi-res still somewhere?
* The stills in the blue frames (they're not screenshots. I think they're promo stills but they're not in my collection of promo shots)

As for all the text/logo elements I've reconstructed everything. There are two other minor issues. I'm not sure how I should tweak the color of the artwork used on the front. Plus, the "Star Wars" logo on the spine is the slightly dodgy one. Does anyone have the official one? I'm thinking perhaps it's on the spine of MoveAlong's "The Story of Star Wars". I'll dig it out tomorrow afternoon and have a look.

Anyway, here's the cover reconstruction as it is now. The only changes are the addition of the Editdroid logo, not having stars all over the back cover and finally I made the barcode a little smaller. I'd like to change the audio information as (IIRC) the Editdroid team mislabeled one of the mixes as being a different one to what it was?

Anywho...

So yeah. Please help me finish this off so I can upload it for everyone.

I've got all of these, but they are at home so I won't be able to get them up for another few hours. The cover looks great so far!

IIRC, the only mix on this disc that is what it was actually labeled is the mono mix. The '70 mm mix' is actually the '93 DE remix, and the '35mm mix' is actually taken from the special widescreen edition, which is another remix, '85, I think. But it is very nice to have all those sound mixes on one disc.

Well, I've got the 35mm stereo mix, as it was ripped from CED (was it Neil S. Bulk? someone here ripped me it), I haven't yet synched it to GOUT though.

klokwerk,

The recreation is looking really sweet.

If Sluggo can't find it, I also have a good quality tatooine shot. I used it for my lookalike version of this cover. It's from the original matte painting.

I just had a thought though: are we sure this cover isn't already on the "Laserman" covers dvd? It's been a while since I looked at it, but I know some of the EditDroid covers are on there.

You know of the rebellion against the Empire?

Yup, it is for the Philips set. It was an 'inside joke' between them and some friends.

Wish I had the Laserman cover disc. However, I've been told by others that it's not on there.

Erikstormtrooper, thanks for the matte painting. Have any more? I love getting images like this!

Edit: Strangely, it seems that the Editdroid version of the Tatooine shot has more of the planet. If I align the image you gave me, it matches... but the bottom half of the planet is there on the ED one and not this one. Odd. I tried stretching the bottom of the planet and that how I've done it for now... but is there a different version of this image floating around that has more to it on the bottom? ...Actually, the low-quality shot I'd been using has that extra image too. Hrm.

Sluggo, yeah I figured. I did an inside joke like that for my original mock-up cover for Star Wars Episode III. I should dig that out as I can't remember what barcode I used. It might have been Thumb Wars... not 100% on that though.

Got the PM. Thanks a bunch, Sluggo. Here is my revised reconstruction...
http://img261.imageshack.us/img261/2917/edmonomixrc2cd4.jpg

As for what's new in this one compared to the old one, I have:
* Added in a hi-res version of the TIE vs X-Wing shot (also color-corrected it) to replace the low-res upsize of the scan
* Added in the 3 framed pics (used color-matching to get rid of the green color-cast they had and they now look like the original scan)
* Utilized the "Star Wars" logo from MoveAlong's TSOSW cover (resized slightly and spaced to match the ED one almost exactly)
* Changed the Tatooine pic to the one I got from Erikstormtrooper. While it doesn't have the same amount of image as the ED version it is nice and clear and I've got a temporary solution in place that looks fine.
* Edited the Audio Information box's text so that it correctly describes the three tracks (same with the Special Features list) - I can change this back if need be, but it's accurate now.
* Reworked the ED logo to provide a nice, sharp version that is not blurry (and is solid black, not grey)
* I used color-matching on the ED label to get a color scheme on the front art that is much closer to the ED version.
* Added a basic starfield to the back cover and made sure it was showing through all the solid black (it doesn't show in this tiny preview of the cover though).

Sluggo/Editdroid: what else is there left to do? I reckon I just need to get the starfield right and perhaps find that slightly-more-image version of the Tatooine matte painting (though that's not as important as the starfield). Let me know what you think and if you have that image send it on through.

Actually, I've just looked at the two versions side-by-side and think that I'll need to fiddle with the colors on the Tatooine shot if that other version can't be found.

There was an official label and if the team finds their cover then they'll make them available to everyone.

Klokwerk, your revised cover looks better than the original. I've had all my original EditDroid discs in a safe place for a while now and I've needed a cover for my copy of the monomix version. It will be great to have one with the corrected audio track info on it as well. Cant wait to see the final version.

The EditDroid Special Features set is amazing. I can't believe how professionally well-done the entire set is. The quality on the classic features is amazing. It's nice to have so many trailers in one spot. Nice backup of The Definitive Collection. Neat alternate musical scenes. Great odds and ends.

And the menus - they're gorgeous. They belong on an official release. I don't know how they pulled these animated menus off, but they did, and they are almost worth the cost of admission alone.

Are there any little easter eggs in this set?

I'm aware of an easter egg on disc one. I'm not sure about the other discs yet.
