In 1980 when Empire cam out, you could by a folding poster thing. On the back was a load of info an shit!!
One had a piece about the Empire, and it stated there that the Stormtroopers were clones...

Also, Jimbo is correct in saying, if Goerge Lucas says they are Clones, then they are Clones.
They may not have been once, but they are now!




Wow I did not know that. If thats true then the Stormtroopers were always considered clones. I originally assumed that he didn't believe that until he made the prequals.




I bet there will be another DVD release of the SE Trilogy after the movies wrap up something like The STOOPER EDITION of Star Wars and on top of all the added CG from the SE it will include Jango Fetts voice dubbed of all the Troopers voices...

How long have you had these Droids.........

Weak man weak, but he it's GL's story right?

I just gotta think - SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEVE

The Holiday Special "first edition"?

Hi there!

The ONLY Known copies of the STAR WARS: Holiday Special were all sourced from an Original television studio original broadcast tape. (WGBN TV channel 2 Boston is the station)

Most versions were edited to remove the color bars and station ID that is at the begining of some of the real old VHS's and appear to be 'home-recordings' BUT way back in 1978 a VHS VCR cost around $1000 and a blank VHS tape cost between $20 - $50.

the quality is gonna be poopy NO MATTER what anyone claims - I had a 15 years old VHS of the holiday special that I tried to capture to VCD about 5 years ago.... The VHS tape was so old and nasty that it destroyed my Sony SVHS deck (the tape looked like it melted around the heads).

I do have this on DVDr and I restored the picture as best as I could...

- It was captured from a 15 years old vacuum sealed VHS tape that was bought at a SCIFI con about 12 years ago (the tape came from a SW fanatic here in town - the tape survived and was resealed)

- I did not capture the tape but I do know that a JVC D-VHS w/ S-video out was used with Adobe Premier

- I took the MPEG2 and filtered for blocks, I also did some color/gamma correction and authored the disc with bonus videos

It's not the best quality but you can watch it without snow or pixulation driving you insane!
