Do you think the display is eye catching?
Yes, kind of.

Do you think you would notice this display at a till of a store?
Yes

Would you be tempted to buy the box set displayed?
No, but if this was the only way to get original trilogy in good quality, then I'd had to.

Do you think the Darth Vader and Leia characters on the stand are iconic?
Yes, but Leia looks cheap. Maybe her putting the plans to R2 would be better, or something else. That holo fig is quite boring...

Do you think the design of the box set is interesting?
No, see comments.

Would you display the box set?
No...

Would you automatically associate the box with star wars?
No, but as a fan I would thought it looked kinda like a Death Star of course.

Is there enough information on the box?
No, needs more specific info, like what docos and maybe some screencaps or more pictures.

Would you pick the shaped box set over normal DVD cases?
No


Comments?
I don't think that looks like Death Star. I know it supposed to look when I first saw the picture, but the super laser isn't a bubble... Also the plastic looks very cheap. If it really looked like a Death Star model, like with the equator where you could open it and it had much details and rough surface, then it would look really cool and I would buy it. But I don't know how discs would look good inside, that looks that you've just put a little cakebox in there...

How to force English DVD-subs?
Time
I've created a trilogy set, which was originally letterboxed with burnt in English subs for Huttese and I've cropped it to get a nice anamorphic video. At the same time, the subs were gone. So I made new English DVD-subs for those Greedo scenes etc. I don't want burnt in subs for these, because there are other optional subs for these movies, and it would be extra work. However, is there any easy way (like changing a value in IFOEdit or something) to force those English subs on when you first play the DVD, so that I don't need to select them when I want to watch the movie in English? This method is used in the official SW DVDs, you just need to press play, and the English subs for Huttese are there when you watch it.

//Star Wars Begins\\: HD Version Now on Vimeo

I have that video, too. I've watched it a few times but I think it's just boring because it's unofficial, so there's no music, clips or sounds from Star Wars. But it could be useful for this project.

Also, I think that Carrie was lying in this video, IIRC. She said that she and Mark hit the wall when they flew across the chasm but in Empire of Dreams (?) she said that they made it on first attempt. I guess she spiced the story up.

Edit: and yes, mine is an official video, not DVD.

Is there anything you do like about The Prequels...
Time
I thought Qui-Gon was a good character.
Ewan as Obi-Wan was one of the only good things in the PT.
Lightsaber duels are quite entertaining, at least in TPM and ROTS, but they aren't as epic as OT fights.
Some scenes in ROTS are good and fun to watch.

But I don't understand the pod race. It's like the most boring thing ever. CG pods racing many many many minutes. I actually once fell asleep during it! It just feels stupid and useless, just to show what ILM can do (which isn't even very impressive)... And the extended race. That was the worst DVD change in TPM! At least in my opinion.

Intercom voices in the OT

Now I feel stupid. I checked A New Hope and there's few in there. It's "53, to upper bay door" and some others that I just guessed are now confirmed. Those other things I mentioned aren't there and I found one more intercome voice. It's right there when a guy shuts Y-Wing canopy before they leave the hangar.
Also, those subtitles prove that my script isn't so accurate! BT-16 is now VT-16, top gassing is outgassing, and "The door's locked?" is "The door's locked.". Those I found when I watched random scenes.

Getting too old for this sort of thing?
Time
I'm 19. I saw the trilogy on TV in 1996 and the rest is history. I got the 1995 VHS trilogy box and later of course Special Editions. I saw only SW and Empire from the big screens, damn I hated that I missed Jedi. Even when I had SEs and the originals, I still watched the originals from time to time, but I "protected" them so I didn't watch them as often as SEs.

And if you guys think what a kid like me thinks about SEs an PT... Well, at first I thought that the SEs were cool because of better picture and sound quality like they showed in the featurettes before the movie. I didn't focus to the things they changed. Then I heard about Episode I. I thought why would they make more because the story is complete already. But I got excited about it and I even went to see a movie because I knew they'd show TPM trailer for the first time! Man! When I saw The Phantom Menace, I thought it was kind of cool with all these lightsaber fights, but I never ever thought that it was better than any of the originals. As I grew couple of years older, I was maybe 14, I started to hate it. I thought AOTC was as boring and crappy as it is still to me.
And of course, I absolutely hate this Lucas' tinkering and weird stuff he's come to. I want the real theatrical releases on DVD, dammit! Btw, I've been eagerly waiting for X0 for two years now. I'm so happy when it's launched.

Request, Star Wars episodes IV, V, VI 1997 Special Editions
Time
Hey. I downloaded those 5 Star SEs, but there's missing at least one part from SW. It's right when they cut from R2 to the first time we see cantina and the alien's head comes up into the screen and Cantina Band starts playing. Well, in these the alien's head is already up when it cuts to cantina. I haven't looked the rest of the film yet, neither ROTJ. TESB looks fine...

Where can I obtain these TB SEs? And are they even better quality than these LD-rips?

Intercom voices in the OT

Also, in the Star Wars Special Edition there's added some sandtrooper talk in the new dewback/escape pod scene.
And when talking about the SEs, in the end of ROTJ some guy(s) yells something on Coruscant = English? The '97 version, that is, so don't even think about saying that some damn Gungans are yelling "wesa free!".

Can anyone help me out if they have some audio editing thingies where you can reduce noise or happens to know what these people are trying to say... or just have very good hearing. Any help would be appreciated.

Chewie: ROARR!
Luke: Ok, Han, you, you put those on.
Han: Don't worry, Chewie. I think I know what he has in mind.

Luke: Lock the door.
Han: And hope they don't have pants.
