well my set came today...
I've avoided posting in this (or any other) thread regarding the changes. I'm not particularly keen on them, but it's a foregone conclusion these days that lucasfilm (and I'm not even sure it's down to GL these days, I'm sure he just gets a memo with an idea that one of the staff gets, shrugs, and goes "yeah, why not?") will keep tampering with these films.
And like so many others here, I already have numerous choices should I want to watch a preferred cut
That said, I have only watched TPM so far (working through them in order, with my oh-so-tolerant wife...well, it was her who bought them for my birthday haha) and the picture quality is fantastic. sure the cgi sticks out like a sore thumb when it's mostly a live action background (i.e. the entrance to mos espa), but when reversed, like the naboo plains battle, or the space battle, it looks fantastic.
The deleted scenes for TPM ain't up to much either, but there was enough there that I hadn't seen before, and plenty of material should I decide to make "The Menace Revealed". just a shame all the bonus docs have that crappy yellow border
Anyway, overall, very happy so far and can't waitt o see what the rest looks like
