Info: The "Odds and Ends" Thread

Hello everybody,

As some of you may know, I’ve recently been trying to acquire the essential Star Wars “bonus features” releases (actually, it’s all things obscure Star Wars). My current library currently includes (legally purchased when applicable):

Episodes I-VI

Star Wars: Bonus Material (featuring Empire of Dreams)

The Story of Star Wars - Bonus DVD

Star Wars: Clone Wars (animated) Volumes I and II

Star Wars The Clone Wars (CG)

Star Wars: Droids

Star Wars: Ewoks

Ewok Adventures (Caravan of Courage and Battle for Endor)

The Star Wars Holiday Special

The Rowman Collection

Star Wars: Spoofs and Bonus Features

Deleted Magic

Building Empire (currently downloading)

Returning to Jedi (currently downloading)

In these releases, I notice a few things that I believe should be included somewhere, but seem to have failed in doing so. As such, I have been creating some DVDs to add to my collection, and thought I’d offer them to the public as well, if there is interest.

I have currently completed my “Star Wars: The Holiday Special” Bonus Disc. The version of the special that I own includes some bonus features, but none of them actually pertain to the special itself. My disc includes the following:

I do not own original copies of any of these. This is merely a compilation of what I have found across the internet. It is nothing that anybody else couldn’t do - but as far as I can tell, no one has. The quality varies, but I have a decent sized widescreen television and I was pleasantly surprised with most of it. I do not have access to a private torrent site, but would be willing to post it to a public one if there is interest. Anyone is welcome to download it from there and put it on a private one.

My second project is in the works, but is going to contain things that I would like to own on DVD but did not find on any of my downloads or legal copies. Again, I do not own any original copies, these are merely what I have come across. It is the “Odds and Ends” disc. Here is the list so far:

  • Richard Pryor’s Star Wars Bar

  • C 3P0s commercial (I realize this has been included before, but not in anything I have been able to find)

  • Star Wars According to a 3 Year Old

  • The full ANH Jabba the Hutt scene (since that was attained after the release of Deleted Magic)

  • “The Injured Stormtrooper”

  • “The Vader Sessions”

  • “Ewok Gospel” with Billy Dee Williams

  • Behind the Scenes of the Ewok Gospel

  • Star Wars Public Service Announcments (the real ones from the 70s)

  • Return of the Ewok (again, I realize this has been released, but all I have is this version, and I want it on a disc)

Let me know if there is any interest in any of this. I have taken much from the community and am willing to give back.

DVD: Return of the Ewok and Other Little Films (Released)

Hello everyone... I'm back with another ignorant question. For all those who were wondering, I have successfully downloaded three of the four Rowman bonus discs (many thanks to all those who helped). However, my usenet trial expired before I could find more. I am currently searching for alternative means to download the rowman laserdisc bonus features and the deleted magic trilogy. I am posting here for a different reason, though. I am curious as to whether "Return of the Ewok and Other Little Films" is still attainable, or if it's reproduction has been shut down. As always, I can be reached at I would be willing to pay for the price of a disc and shipping, but would prefer spending nothing further.

***The Official RowMan*** Release Thread

Alright, so I've got one last issue here. I managed to download the ANH bonus disc (thanks for all your help). I'm figuring out the Usenet situation. However, the ESB and ROTJ are listed as not having all of the required files. Well, ESB says it does, but when I try to download several of the files are "incomplete" despite several download attempts. The ROTJ says it only has 99% of the required files. Is this normal? Is there anything I can do to fix this?

***The Official RowMan*** Release Thread

Ok, so I was downloading the ANH bonus disc from my UseNEXT trial and made it to 92% before I reached my download limit. I only have a few files remaining. Is there any way to finish this download / get the others without paying for a Usenet subscription? I'm sorry to be such a pain about this, but you guys are my only hope at seeing this beyond buying it off ebay or paying for Usenet, and considering that some of the stuff (particularly the deleted magic, building empire, etc) were created to be seen for free, I think I should be able to find another way. Am I out of options?


***The Official RowMan*** Release Thread

Hello everybody - I apologize for my ignorance, but I am new to the forums. I have been searching for unreleased Star Wars features, and came across this site. RowMan's bonus discs to each of the original trilogy films seem to be exactly what I'm looking for. I'm having trouble locating the downloads, though. I need a registration to access myspleen, which I don't have. (I'm not even sure if these are on myspleen, I just saw some links to it in the posts). It is also available on Usenet, but I would prefer to avoid having to pay for a membership. Is there anyway I could just get a torrent? Or is there another way?
