4K77 - Released
Time

HI,

I’ve been pointed to this direction regarding the 4Kxx films. I’ve been wondering for some time on how to download it. Now if I’ve done my homework correctly, it states that you can download it from various sources of private torrent trackers by likes of Myspleen. Since its ‘private’, registration is closed and access is obviously restricted. I’ve learned however, that 4Kxx content can also be accessed from its dedicated website:
https://forums.thestarwarstrilogy.com/. Like Myspleen, it to is restricted unless given an invite code from a forum member. Rather than going through all this trouble on trying to make a Myspleen account and such, I would much prefer downloading it from the website if deemed possible. Any help on matter is much appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Kind Regards

The Phantom Menace - anyone want to chat about TPM?

I always thought so too about the LPCM since i don’t have an ac3 demodulator. But i watched the preservation with the Dolby EX track and it blows the 2 channel stereo mix away. It isn’t logical or scientific but i think it sounds better than the DTS cinema tracks and even the blu ray audio.

I’ve always preferred the sound quality of DTS more than Dolby. I wouldn’t think Dolby EX could stand even a glimmer of chance against Blu-ray’s uncompressed audio tracks.

I’ve seen Japanese copies on Ebay, not sure if they were released in the U.S. or not.

@Sliverwook, I’m pretty sure Video 8’s were only released in Japan and potentially the UK. The U.S I believe never saw a release. I’m definitely not spending $4000 on three cassettes. I wish I started looking earlier!! Everything was cheaper then. I guess I have to wait until it comes for a reasonable price.

My recreation of the Empire Strikes Back Red label CD
Time

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:

Star Wars:

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.

Matching 4k slipcovers - Interior Cover - Updated Disc Label - Updated Content
Time

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?

Also,
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?

Info Wanted: Kylo Ren Lightsaber Star Wars - Jedi Challenges Lenovo
Time

I’ve checked the links and unfortunately, they don’t show the item I’m after:

https://www.amazon.com/Star-WarsTM-Jedi-Challenges-Lightsaber-android/dp/B07JG8LLBJ/ref=sr_1_1?crid=2OX65TOC0FOP9&dchild=1&keywords=kylo+ren+lightsaber+lenovo&qid=1595314094&sprefix=kylo+ren+lightsaber+lenov%2Caps%2C369&sr=8-1

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.
