Author

Greetings all.  Several years back I put together a compilation of SW original trilogy TV spots...many authentic, some recreations based upon actual audio...details are here:

I'm working on an updated version, but have pretty much gone dry looking for new ones.  I've located some throughout the forums here but are looking for more actual spots...specifically several SW 78/79 (including a C3PO SPOT)...2 SW 1982 rerelease spots, and a JEDI rerelease from '85.  

If anyone has any sort of lead on tracking these and MORE down, please shoot me an pm...I would greatly appreciate it.  Below are the release dates for the OT.  Thanks much!

SW - MAY 26 1977...JULY 21 1978...AUGUST 15 1979...APRIL 10 1981...AUGUST 13 1982

EMPIRE - MAY 17 1980...JULY 31 1981, NOV 19, 1982

JEDI  - MAY 25 1983...MARCH 29 1985

Thanks much...I did find these on Youtube already though.  There is another one in this series for 3PO...found a portion of it from a "none" project, but it's only partial...recreated it in my series from audio recorded as a kid.  I appreciate the offer though...love your site.

Well, this brought back TV memories from my childhood. Nice!

I am what all Jedi fear to become, and what all Sith wish to be. A GOD!

A few months ago I found one of the 82 re-release commercials on VHS tape I bought at a junk shop.

Give me a few days and I can send you a better copy.

Edit: I also have a commercial for SPFX: The Empire Strikes Back if there is any interest.

Wow, Tasjo thank you so much!  Majorly appreciative (I was WAY off on my scene guesses for that spot). I'd be interested in any others for sure. Thanks again!  Benduan thanks as well...I will revisit those links in search of more treasures.

It’s been a couple weeks - okay, five YEARS - thought I would give this a bump to see if anyone has come across any more original trilogy spots through YouTube, their VHS travels or perhaps while digging through local dumpsters. Gracias.

I don’t like bringing back old threads, but that recording of the TV spot was a necessary source I used to bring it in HD. It sucks I could not be able to see it again.
