Not the worst in the saga.
But for some reason, my image from my computer won’t load up here so yeah, awkward. But I assume you know whats it’s going to look like.
In 83’, the first pressings of Star Wars and Return of the Jedi were released in Germany by music label RSO. Each containing a red face:
Return of the Jedi:
But The Empire Strikes Backs first press however, was released in 85’ by U.S label Polydor and didn’t have a red face:
The Empire Strikes Back:
So, I endeavored to try and re-create the classic album into what original CD should’ve looked like.
Looks like someones being having fun.
But damn, $2 a ticket!!
March 31st 2020, Disney released episodes I-VII and Rogue One on 4k for the first time with matching slipcovers, interior covers, updated discs, and updated content that look like this:
Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace:
Star Wars Episode II - Attack of the Clones:
Star Wars Episode III - Revenge of the Sith:
Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope, Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars Episode VI - Return of the Jedi:
Star Wars Episode VII - The Force Awakens:
Rogue One - A Star Wars Story:
During this time, we also see TROS seek a 4k release but without a matching slipcover/interior cover (Discs and content are the same as the Skywalker Saga set).
Star Wars Episode IX - The Rise Of Skywalker:
Prior to March 31st 2020, The Last Jedi and Solo already had a 4k release.
Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi:
Solo - A Star Wars Story:
A few months after the 4k debuts of episodes I-VII and Rogue One, we see a re-issue of TLJ and Solo matching the other movies except TROS.
Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi - re-issue:
Solo - A Star Wars Story - re-issue:
You’d expect that they’ve also changed the interior cover as well as the updating the content/discs that is currently only available in the complete Skywalker Saga Box set (Excluding Solo because there has only been one release for Solo, hence there cannot be updated content, only interior covers and updated disc label to differentiate the previous release). Wrong! Instead, they’ve slapped the matching cover on the original 4k releases of both films. No matching interior cover, no updated discs, and no updated content. Just the same old stock we saw before. At some point, would there be a matching (slipcover/interior cover/updated content/updated disc) copy of both the TLJ and Solo?
TROS is yet to recieve the same treatment as the other movies and would there also be a matching copy to complete the set at some point in time?
I’ve checked the links and unfortunately, they don’t show the item I’m after:
The Kylo Ren lightsaber was an exclusive item sold separate to the set provided in your links. It would explain why it sold for soo much on eBay those months ago. It’s near impossible to find a new copy let alone a pre-owned.
It doesn’t matter I’m in no rush for it anyway. Thanks for the help, appreciate it!!
Thanks for the help! I’ve been checking eBay almost everyday since its release to try and snatch one for myself. The last time I’ve seen a copy was on eBay and I’m pretty sure it was during time span of the official release of TROS. From memory, it was listed for a ridiculous price ($2000 USD) as an auction format. Not sure if it sold but I would never buy it at that price anyway. Amazon US I’ve been checking monthly and have seen no market update. It kept saying unavailable or something along those lines. I would never really check the overseas markets often but now, I guess I should huh.
Thanks! Do you happen to know any international sources I could buy it from?
Anyone know if this is still available? I’ve seen one recently go for $2000 (original price under $100)!
Hi Digitalfreaknyc, nah these are all normal releases of the single. Thanks anyway
Anyone know of this?
Also, does anyone have one that they may not need?
I have been collecting records for years and this is a must have in my collection. Would really appreciate any info on the item or where I could find one, or if one happens to have one.
I purchased a brand new copy of the reel a few years back but I don’t know if I should open it. Maybe to digitize it but that would mean I would need to dig in the shed trying to find the reel machine. So what do you guys reckon?
If you are talking to me, then I don’t know. I wasn’t able to find the files online.
Luke’s T-65 X-wing fighter.
Whats the catalogue numbers of the reel? It should be written on the top of both reels and the left/top edge of the box. Also what contents are included? I bought one recently and I just want confirmation.
Appreciate the help
Not all DVD’s were great though. Most DVD’s defiantly looked better than a VHS and the quality of sound debatable (it depends on the quality of tape and if your tape includes HI-FI sound or not). But when compared to LaserDisc, not all were even close to the quality of picture or sound. But overall, DVD’s were far superior. Easier to manage, easier to play, easier to store, easier to buy, easy to control and things of the nature.
“When the prices started dropping from “Laserdisc” enthusiast level down to the $200 range, electronics stores (hah, remember those!) were basically shoveling the things out the door by simply connecting a VCR and a DVD player to the same TV and pushing a button on a switcher.” Yes I do remember:).
It is pretty much a VHS on a disc. The only the that differentiates them is the audio. VHS had a ‘warmer’ sound. The power of Hi-Fi.
This is what it looks like:
I actually found one last night. Not even joking.
I am reading this:
DVD’s were still new during that time period. Now if I remember correctly, the DVD was technically invented in 1995. But most countries didn’t have them. Mainly because, the cost of DVD’s were expensive and other platforms like VHS or LaserDisc were also still available and people had already adjusted to them. Plus they were still making improvements to make them more versatile. Anyway, the worldwide release for the DVD in 2000 was the right move considering the year 2000 was a new millennium. The new era of technology.
But sometimes luck can go your way. Hopefully today considering its Saint Patrick Day
Yeah. I search a specific title and the complete opposite comes up. Whenever I seem to find one on Discogs, the next day they’re gone. So its pretty frustrating considering how much time I spend trying to find one.
