Looking for retail-style slimline covers for Gus Johnson's Imbiamba Jombes trilogy
Time

I would prefer a 2003 or 2008 style set.

There will be a separate bonus disc featuring some other Gus Johnson/Imbiamba Jombes-related videos (my roof, crayons, my garden, custom trailers for the Trilogy, poster gallery, etc.)

As long as the covers could stand close scrutiny against the official Indiana Jones counterparts, it’s OK.

Deal with it, internet, I think these are funny, and I’m putting them on DVDs because I just feel like it.

A Long Time Ago... - Share Your Star Wars Story
Time

I was born in 2007, and I’ve always had an instinctive love for anything Star Wars, as the very first movie I ever saw was the '04 version of ANH via the Best Buy tin of GOUT DVDs. (I still have them, but they’re near unplayable now.) By the time I was 3, I had already seen the then complete saga. For some reason, ROTJ was always my favorite, and still is today, but I assure you, it’s not because it’s “the one with the Ewoks” like most of my family likes it for. I managed to be able to see every Disney-era SW in theaters multiple times, with the ST, each time seemed to take a layer of color away from the rose-colored glasses of the excitement of seeing a new Star Wars. I noticed new flaws and ultimately decided to try my best to ignore the Canon timeline and stick to Legends, which is what I grew up on.

I like the OT, PT, and Rouge One equally.

I’ve always had a sizeable collection of Star Wars toys and collectibles with the bulk of it being stuff from the '90s Power of the Forse and Power of the Jedi lines, purchased from places like 2nd and Charles.

So yeah.

If you could change one thing about every movie, what would it be?
Time

ANH: Replace Alec Guinness with Ewan McGregor from the near future
ESB: More Fett
ROTJ: Have the construction on the DSII actually make a bit of fairly noticeable progress during the movie.
TPM: Remove Jar Jar and find some other way to get to Theed that would still be semi-exciting.
AOTC: Remove mention of Death Star and save the reveal for ROTS
ROTS: Put all the deleted scenes back in.
TFA: Snoke is Plagueis (just for the heck of it.)
TLJ: DJ stays with the good guys the whole time
TROS: New script that actually redeems the ST after the abysmal TLJ.
