THAT IS ACTUALLY A REAL FAN FILM THAT WON THE PIONEERING AWARD AT CELEBRATION 2. THE PERSON WHO SOLD THIS ITEM GOT IT FROM TOTAL MOVIE MAGAZINE'S FIRST ISSUE. THE DVD CAME POLYBAGGED WITH THE DVD THAT CONTAINED EVERYTHING THAT THE SELLER SPECIFIED. I HAVE THE DVD FROM THE MAGAZINE. IT DIDN'T HAVE THE SLIPCASE COVER THAT THE SELLER IS INCLUDED WITH THE DISK. IT DIDN'T EVEN COME IN A DVD SLIPCASE. IT CAME IN ONE OF THOSE LITTLE CD ENVELOPES WITH THE DVD FEATURES LISTED ON IT.

I've seen bits and pieces of this before, too. It was hilarious.

I've got the movie on DVD as well.

Total Movie was giving away its first issue (with Troops). I signed up to get that free issue.

Since I liked the magazine and everything I kept getting it. Before the magazine went defunct, I had several disks of trailers and shorts, plus 41 full-length DVD movies.
(Most were old B&W movies, couple Dick Tracy movies, 2 Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes, Road to Bali original Little Shop of Horrors).

I just love how it ties into ANH and how, if Luke had only checked with the local Constabulary, this whole revolt could have been avoided. Damn free spirits.

RRS-1980, we have possible 678 in your location... investigate and report.
I saw the original theatrical release of the Old Trilogy on the big screen and I'm proud of it...
How did I accomplish that (considering my age) is my secret...

I bought it too, the magazine was great and every issue came with a dvd, then they went out of business after issue four, then they came back and the magazine sucked and you had to mail away to get the dvd and half the time they sent the wrong one.

but it was all worth it for me troops dvd.

Brilliant bit of fan filmmaking.

Princess Leia: I happen to like nice men.
Han Solo: I'm a nice man.

Wow, I almost forgot I had this DVD. Yeah I agree, Troops is pretty cool. Never listened to the audio commentary though, anybody check it out?

(Total Movie came back a third time with the DVD included again, still stunk though)
The original Star Wars trilogy: Our cultural history deserves to be preserved and should be available to the public like all great works of art!

I dunno man. Hardware Wars was pretty good. Wouldn't that be considered a fan film?

Sort of. And it must be the first one since it's 1978 (right?).
