Is oojason Human!!??
Time

My God he does a lot of work for this site. I don’t know what his role really is, if he’s paid or doing it out of pure love it. As an occasional contributer, this is the first place I come to looking for answers & thanks to oojason organizing & indexing things…it’s way easier.

It boggles the mind how much info has been organized. So Hats off to this Juggernaut. Get some sleep!!

Obi_Wan's Reaction in Star Wars IV
Time

Don’t know if this has been discussed before, but it’s always intrigued me. In Star Wars IV when Obi wan is talking to Luke, right after Obi-Wan gives him the lightsaber, Alec Guiness has this “hesitant” look about him when Luke asked him how his father was killed. It’s @ 31:53.

I’ve always wondered if:

  1. Alec Guiness was told by Lucas to do this and didn’t tell him why.
  2. Alec Guiness was told by Lucas that Obi-wan killed Luke’s dad, but no other cast member knew.
  3. Alec Guiness did this subtle hesitation out of pure acting skill.

However it was accomplished, I’ve always thought, WOW…when you look back & pay attention to that micro second, that look on Alec Guiness’s face…it’s like he knkew something no one else did?

I don’t know all the lore, so I don’t know if Lucas had “fleshed” out the whole story when it came time to shoot this scene. I recently saw an episode of the Graham Norton Show with the cast of the Last Jedi & Mark Hamill told the story of shooting the Empire scene where Vaders tells Luke he is his father…that on Set the line actually said was…“Obi-Wan Killed your father”. it wasn’t until after that scene he was told by Director Kershner what the line was really going to be (post production and that only Mark, Lucas & Kershner knew this.

Here’s the Link, it’s @ :50 sec…

So this got me thinking about the Obi_Wan scene in Star Wars IV.

Thoughts??

How to refer to Star Wars?
Time

Okay, we all know the 1977 Star Wars has undergone a ton of changes over the years. But what would be the correct title to use when you want to refer to the Original Theatrical release? I know it only said Star Wars no episode or title, but now what’s right??

Star Wars
Star Wars 1977
Star Wars Episode 4
Star Wars A New Hope

Thinking about it, what’s the best way to entitle a disc?

Despecialized SW v2.7 using Mac OS Toast
Time

Okay, I downloaded SW 2.7 a while ago from tehparadox…that’s how long ago (RIP Paradox). As I recall I used JDownloader & downloaded 8 Rar files, then had JDownloader extract the files & it created a Star Wars Despecialized 2.7 AVCHD Folder with a BDVM file.

I remember the AVCHD rar’s ver 2.5 creating a .iso file which I used Toast to burn onto a a DL DVD & that created a BDVM & the certificate Folder. But what the heck do I do with Ver 2.7 BDVM file??? Using TOAST??? Anyone? Have a clue?

I was thinking of using Toast to burn the BDVM file with the a DVD ROM UDF setting.

Custom blu-ray setfor the Despecialized Editions
Time

I don’t get how someone can be asking HOW to get/make the Despecialized versions in a Thread under the topic of DVD Covers, Disc Labels, and Other Fan Artwork. ARTWORK. Then seemed surprised that they don’t get an answer?

Hard work & perseverance…that’s how. You think someone is just gonna give up the goods? If it were that easy, EVERYONE would have a copy! Besides, even when you get to the link, downloading & creating the mkv’s or AVCHD’s is another arduous process!

We all have to pay our dues…that’s the Price for having the Despeciaized Versions.

IMHO

Just a couple of Notes. First I give a lot of credit to FranKT for the use of his lightsabers for the insert of the Carrying Case Set. FrankT really inspired me.

Secondly, I would say I just assembled pieces I have found on the internet into an idea. Example the Transfer Case, I got from gleaming this forum…

http://originaltrilogy.com/user/rsortor/id/6843

Puggo Grande?

Third…it goes without saying that I intentionally made the “mistakes” on the Transfer case to make it look like someone had changes their minds on what the films should be called & that it has seen better days, being tossed around!

I’m not as Creative as others, but I tried to create something unique & not too cluttered. I will say the Black Set is “bullet Proof” I might have used a little too thick card stock! LOL

Again thanks for the kind words.

Bolstered by the Kind comments of oojason, I’m posting some of my “creations”. Believe me, compared to what I have seen, mine are amateurish @ best. but @ least I have the satisfaction that I made it & it’s 1 of a Kind! Sorry for the sizes…too much effort to resize! I am disappointed with Photobucket.

An <strong>Index Thread</strong> (and more) for <strong><em>Case Covers, Disc Labels, and Fan Art</em></strong>...
Time

I feel honoured & humbled to be listed in such a talented group of visionary creators & Artists! I have since enhanced my Box set & even made another. I actually took the time to take more decent photos & might try to upload some?

Kudos to you SIR for taking the time & effort to compile such a huge listing.

Star Wars DVD Covers
Time

For whatever reason I do prefer your “simple” Trilogy Box set. Not that there’s anything simple about it. But it’s Clean design really brings out the titling and Impact?? I dunno…this set & Frank’s Arrow White Box design’s set the Bar for me! Oh & also Frank’s Lightsaber set…again Simple & to the point!

Excellent work. Now if only you could have a Holographic projection where the Front “Window” is when you lay the set down. That would be fantastic. Let us know when you got that one solved!

Quick note: On my “Box Set” I made the Stupid Mistake of putting A New Hope to Star Wars Title! Doh Rookie mistake! I noticed your’s just says the Correct 1977 Star Wars Only. Well done…clap clap

Need help with a DVD box set measurements
Time

oojason’s idea of “reusing” an existing box set is an Excellent idea! You can get one dirt cheap @ a Pawn shop, like $5? The recover it with your own designs. I wish I would have thought of that before I make my box sets.

Getting the printout on a large enough paper to glue to the whole box in 1 piece was the tricky part. I used Bristol Board? Depends on how rigid you want the end result to be? Keep in mind the thicker it is the harder to cut & bend.

The nice thing about making your own is once you figure it out, you want to make another, then another!

My first set has a box within a box, my 2nd set was made to look like an old style Film shipping box, with straps.

I screwed up calling the 1977 A New Hope…as it was just Star Wars in 77.

box1!

box2!

GOOD Luck. Just take your time & measure, measure, measure!

Star Wars Ep 1-6 Poster
Time

Though I would Chime in…

1st off…Everyone Please get a grip. Let’s NOT degrade ourselves to the kind of language other Forums/threads “de-evolve” to!

2nd, I don’t know where this poster originated, but since I have seen it around & in various incarnations, I assumed it was somewhat “authentic/official”? Not Lucas or Disney property official, but more than a Fan Creation?

But I guess if it was “OFFICIAL” maybe then Sir Alec Guinness would be on it?
