    Star Wars: Complete Saga DVD set bootleg???

    I have been waiting for them to make a Star Wars: Complete Saga 1-6 dvd set (like they did for the Blu-Ry set). However, I can't ever find any information on IF and/ or WHEN they might do this for Episodes I-VI for dvd. If you know, please let me know.

    HOWEVER, I was browsing on ebay today and I found several ebay listings for a complete dvd set, but they are all from sellers with 0 or 1 feedback...which makes me uneasy. So, are these bootleg copies?

    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    There is a listing on Amazon for both the prequel trilogy and Original trilogy in new Blu ray/DVD combos, coming October 8th.

    That is the newest video release news I have heard so far. If the set you see there is legit, it should be easily findable on other sites. That is the best advice I can give.

    Also the front box image just doesn't seem like something official.
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    Yeah that is not official, the art alone would not be what Star Wars has used. Also the telling sign is the fact the box says DVD-9 , that is never ever used on standard official releases. It is more to explain what kind of discs its used for copying it

    Thanks for the help guys. You confirmed my suspicions. I am going to look into that pre-order on Amazon.

    Just make sure that whatever you preorder is FROM Amazon and not a Marketplace seller on Amazon. Bootlegs are still sold in Amazon's marketplace so just be sure you read the description and note the seller.

    Are those the original ones or special edition rereleases? Disney was talking about releasing the unaltered original trilogy and I will rebuy the set for that!

    Right now it looks like this is just a repackaging of the existing Blu-Rays, but now with DVD copies presumably of the same editions as the Blu-Rays, which are the most "tampered with" versions of all thus far, with Vader yelling "Nooooo!" in Return of the Jedi, etc. (here is a sample of that...)






    I know there is talk of Disney wanting to release the original versions, and I hope that it does happen, but I highly, HIGHLY doubt that these are them already. They would likely have to go through some considerable restoration effort before releasing them.

    Ill stick with the blu ray set I got then. The old DVDs had the unaltered Laser Disc transfers in the special features but the quality is worse than vhs! I have the original VHS release too so I have a reason to keep my player..lol.

    Yeah, I have those DVDs as well. It's still the best release of the original versions that I own since both of my VHS sets of them are pan&scan/full screen and my DVDs are widescreen (I have both the 1987 "10 anniversary" VHS releases and the 1995 "final" release of the original versions on VHS.... I do also have the 1997 special editions on VHS in Widescreen).

    For someone that doesn't have any of the movie sets, I am really excited they are being re-released...no matter what version they are as I just started collecting Star Wars. So, these will work perfectly for me.
