I goes by the nickname Rondan and this is my story for being among such admirable hob… I mean stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herders 😄
I was born in the same decade of A New Hope, this means that I have only seen the OT on tv and vhs around their resleases. When I was getting older there was a new version of the OT that got released with som years between them. I saw all three movies in one of the finest cinemas in my country and if I don’t remembers it wrong this was 1997. By that time I was blown away with the special effects that they incorperated into the movies.
And at the same time the down fall of the movies that I loved growing up with, was about to happen. I bought the vhs silver edition of the OT when they came out and that was the first and the last time I bought the movies, until I discovered Otdotcom that is.
Sometime around 2010 I was sick and tired of all the versions so I started to think about restoring the OT to its former glory, or maybe find someone who is doing it, because I lacked the talents to do it myself. I started to search the internet for guides and information and found the names of Darth Editous and ADigitalMan poping up about their work to restore the movies. But I couldn’t in my life find a complete copy of their work. And then I found Adywan, Harmy and OT in 2011 and became a member in 2012. To day I own the official versions on Blu-ray and I have managed to get some but not all versions of the OT that I want to see, but that’s another story.
I’m not even close to be as nerdy as most of you nerf herders in here but I contribute once and a while 😄 And have being around close to ten years now, I just can’t stop admire the hard work that people put into their edits/restorations efforts in here.
I’m out of words.
May the force be with you all…
