The dream part is George Lucas sending a sincere Thank You........Not one of his boring monotone interviews where he pretends to acknowledge the fans and vaguely shows his appreciation for those of us that have sustained his budget so he could make all those other classic lucasfilm flops (Indiana Jones, Willow and American Grafitti not withstanding (think Howard the Duck))
The expensive part couldn't cost more than 120 bones, and if the announcement was made far enough in advance, anyone could save it up. 10 bucks a week = 12 weeks. Us hard core SW fans wouldn't even blink. Kinda like Star Trek fans shelling out 80 bucks for 1 season of Star Trek episodes or those 10 Battlestar Galactica fans buying 1 season of episodes for 89 bucks or more. Just to get a cool looking Cylon thingy. Just kidding, I liked BSG but no way I'm shelling that much out for it. I'll get it on Ebay next year for 30 bucks.
My overall point is.......If he builds it, we will come <eg> but he has to remember the fans. We put him where he is, so a little appreciation would go a long way. And it seems to me like the most sincere form of appreciation George could show us is to put the original versions of the films in the DVD sets.
my 2 cents worth....George, Ya listening?
I don't know about you but I have waited patiently for this series to play itself out. I have purchased every set of VHS tapes produced (including the ones that only had the different cover designs) as well as the 2 DVD's. I am also absolutely going to buy any other DVD's as they are released. I own "Beneath the Dome" and many of the other silly little attempts that Lucas made to make more money. I have patiently waited for almost 5 years so they could finish the series and then worry about the DVD's. I know it sounds greedy and selfish but I think after nearly $100 billion world wide we are sort of owed a mega release that includes both versions of 4,5 and 6 as well as the available versions of 1 through 3 and all of the documentaries.
When the series is all finished and the work starts on the DVD collection, give me a 12 disc set that holds everything that is available as well as a sincere thank you from George.
Now that's a dream.......
