Star Wars DVD Covers
Time
I'd just like to remind people that these are NOT my covers, they are another person's and I do not have access to high-res versions; what you see is what I have.

And actually it was Disney that screwed us over, but we haven't been able to carry Lucasfilm covers for about a year now, six months or so before the site closed. That was because we had covers up for the bootlegs probably, but afterwards we didn't allow non-official covers.

What do you guys think about the green saber? I have access to that art, and if you'd like my covers to use the green saber rather than blue I'll do it.

Star Wars DVD Covers

I'd say nix any "Episode" references and just use the names of the movies, nix the "Revenge" and use "Return", and use something else for Star Wars to match better with Empire and Jedi. I absolutely love the backs and am a little unsure about the "Unauthorized Collection" moniker like DanielB is, but other than those things, they look awesome. It might sound like I'm being overly critical but I was with a DVD cover site for two years (still am but it got shut down for the moment) and we look for all those little details, which is why I insisted on having mine so high-res compared to, specifically, Cerbero's posters on his set, which look fine but don't fit the standards we've set and that I've gotten used to following.

On another note, here's some covers I've seen around the Net. DO NOT ASK FOR THESE AS THEY ARE NOT MINE, I just liked them and figured I would show you guys (not sure about the green ROTJ saber though):




Again, I CANNOT SEND THESE TO ANYONE, they are just examples.

Mine are nearly done entirely, just fine-tuning and tweaking a few things here and there. I included the ESB and ROTJ logos DanielB provided us with, so thanks a bunch for that. They look a ton better now. As for posters, again, give me a little bit, I'll have to get all of them individually up on Angelfire and then post them here, then re-upload and re-post each time AF shuts me down. Wish me luck.

Okay, back from a long week at my parents. If someone can point me to a guide on how to create torrents, I'll gladly put up a torrent of all of my covers.

I'd like to see Obi-Skywalker's covers but it appears they are 'temporarily unavailable'. For the record, though, I loathe all the official DVD covers with the exception of the bonus disc cover and the actual box the OT is in.

And TheSessler - I have hi-res Struzan art for all five movies, I'll try to get a torrent up for that when I figure out how.

Wow...didn't think my covers were going to get such support...okay, I'm having some problems with hosting and such (I have a Hotmail e-mail account, and all the files into a ZIP is 50 megabytes, covers only is 35, and Hotmail's limit for sending attachments is 2, plus Angelfire's limit is 20)...do you think, if I could get them to you, Rikter, that you could somehow do all the hosting for them? That's my only problem, I have all the files zipped and ready, just not hosted anywhere.

DVD labels art
Time
I don't do labels for DVDs. DVDs spin faster than CDs, and therefore get hotter quicker. On a longer movie especially, but on repeat viewings of any movie, the disc label can melt off and ruin the player and the DVD. Happened to a friend of mine's backup copy (his was flooded out and yes he actually uses DVDXCopy for backups and not bootlegs) of LOTR:FOTR EE last year.

I'll do you one better -- PM me your email address and I'll send you whatever posters you want. The Struzans prequel ones are textless, the Struzan OT ones aren't (I cloned out STAR WARS to put in A NEW HOPE), and all the original posters are, but Leia is slightly cut off below the breasts on ROTJ because of where I had to remove the old title. I can send you the ROTJ one with the old title text if you want, however, and Leia's all there in that one.

In case anyone's interested, I have a set of all 6 (currently 5, yes) movies with the title only (no SW: Episode.... at all) and Struzan poster art:

And one with just Star Wars, not ANH:

I also made a trilogy set (no prequels) with the back and bottom half of the spine from cerbero's covers, an actual film-title logo with no SW Trilogy reference on the spine, and much higher-resolution poster art for the front with actual film title logos rather than the plain font. I have two versions of Star Wars, one using ANH and not SW, one using SW and not ANH. If you want I can post previews of those as well later on. The features disc uses Cerbero's front and back, but the spine is the style I used on my others.

--edit--

Here's my other set:

And the ANH one (the reason my ANH covers are crappy is because I hate that title and thus will never use it on the cover on my shelf):

arG!


That's a 16:9 anamorphic stretch that was taken care of in the first pic, but not the second. This is one of the few changes I quite like from the new DVDs.

The Original Trilogy - Laser Disc Conversion Thread
Time
Sorry to bring up an old thread, but I've got a suggestion for the dual-layered disc. How about use the video transfer of the '93 LD and have two audio tracks: 93 version and 89 version if you can get the two different transfers to synch right. Also, you could have the EPISODE IV: A NEW HOPE crawl and the non-ANH crawl as an option (alternate angles, the prequel DVDs have a Spanish and French crawl as alternate angles at that time). That'd be awesome.
