team negative1 - star wars 1977 - 35mm theatrical version (release details and updates)
Time

Anyone who has been keeping up with TN1’s progress knows what incredible things they’ve been doing for Star Wars preservation. The idea that someone could have an issue because there’s not a big “Download here!” link on the forum is just silly.

(EDIT: Also, once you’re successfully a part of the forum, it’s rather easy to find out what you have to do to download the projects.)

Harmy's RETURN OF THE JEDI Despecialized Edition HD (AVCHD DVD9 & NTSC DVD5 available!!! SEE FIRST POST!!!)

So 4k83 is here.
Which edition wins the all round, one-copy-only, best ROTJ at the moment?
Harmy 2.5 or 4k83?

Keep in mind these are two projects aiming for two different things: Harmy has produced a stunning production, and it’s a miracle it is what it is, given how it was made. 4K83, on the other hand, and in my personal opinion, succeeds so completely at being a 4K restoration of the film you would have (and I wish I could have, were I old enough) seen in theatres. I have nothing but admiration and respect for Harmy’s DE, but for me, it’s no competition, 4K83 is THE WAY I will watch Jedi from now on.

Grindhouse trilogy 3-in-1/ matching individual covers/labels?
Time

Finally got it assembled. For some reason, when I put the new cover into my photoshop, the dimensions went wonky, so I had to piece it into the right shape.

Closed

Outside

Inside

I will post some pictures in the next couple days with the discs inside, once they’re finished drying and being burned. I’m gonna be using those really nice film reel labels for the ones inside my cover. Also, Mark, I really like that bit at the bottom on the back with the logos and all the legalese. Is there a template for that anywhere or did you have to assemble that from scratch, because having that to use for future covers would be amazing?

So… I am really not great at photo editing, but I tried something. I picked up some interesting 3 disc blu ray cases that are Criterion width, but with the normal blu ray topper, so I built it to that. Here’s what I came up with:

Pic 1
Outer cover

Pic 2
Inner Cover

Pic 3
Outer cover irl (pardon the bad phone quality)

Inner cover irl (again, pardon the bad phone quality)

Star Wars I - VIII Matching DVD covers?

These may be of interest for those looking for a matching set of covers…

from http://www.covertr.com/dvd-cover-set/48338-star-wars-collection-custom-dvd-cover-set-english-1977-2018-a.html

Looks a cool site - for other series too. You may have to register/join to be able to download them, though.

Those do look cool. Yeah, I’ve tried using that site before, and even after I registered they wouldn’t let me access content.

Part of the issue is that many “complete” sets were made a while ago by members that may no longer be active, so they’re not getting updated as new movies come out.

Also, bear in mind that BR covers have different dimensions than DVD covers, so just swapping out the logo means your cover will be too short and maybe also too narrow(?) for a DVD case.

You are right, that’s why I went off of actual DVD cover dimensions, took the blu ray cover, and centered it on the template, then matched the excess area to the color of the cover, which thankfully was black. The more I think about it though, the more I’m thinking about it, the more I may just focus on I-VI matching covers, and let the Disney era stuff use the original covers. I have a folder of different covers, and I ran across something called “The Graphite Collection” and I kinda like the look of that. It also has matching covers for the Bonus Features disc and the 2D Clone Wars DVDs.
