My ANH vader saber wiggles a bit where the blade attaches to the hilt. (it's most noticable if you shake it or jiggle it fairly roughly). I've never dueled with it, though i have smacked it against people & stuff (c'mon.... they put a "clash" sound effect specifically when it strikes things....) but i've never hit it very hard on anything. Just hard enough to make the sound. It seems like this "play" was probably there from the get go. Built in so that it has a little bit of give b/c they know you're going to hit them on stuff.... but i can't confirm that for sure...
Here's links to photo galleries of MR's replicas of the ANH & ESB versions respectively:
Though they're replicas, they are VERY accurate & you can see much better detail to see the differences since the quality of pics is much better.
man, i'm happy i have an LD player.....
Oh, & i've seen mention of extras on the Faces discs. what are they? i would imagine they might be trailers or that interview with lucas that was on the vhs faces release? certainly nothing as extensive as on the definitive set though?
I've noticed in several threads people mention the various laserdisc releases and the pros/cons to each. I personally rushed out & bought a nice LD player & the Definitive Collection LD boxset when i heard about the no OT dvd news. I've been very happy with the set (great picture for the most part, awesome bonus features, wonderful full feature CAV format, etc.), but i've seen several people comment that the "faces" version is better. Why is this? Please use this thread to discuss the good, the bad, & the ugly of each version of STAR WARS on laser, so those of us who like to have offical releases (even as supplements to fan preservations) can get the best versions out there.
