    I don’t know, man — I’ve got laserdisc transfers already. Just because Lucasfilm did it doesn’t mean it’ll be any better. I’m skipping this set.

    I’ve seen the quality comaprisons and it blows the laserdisc one away. I’m on the Originaltrilogy.com forum now and they are big into Fan preservations and edits and there is this laserdisc Transfer project called the X0 project. The XO team bought the absolute best Laserdisc player ever made to get their transfers, it gost like $2,500 and weighs like 80 pounds or something like that and it got all of the high end features available for the technology. And even after cleaning it up and doing all that they can the DVD kills it by a mile. The clarity and detail is much more improved. Heres a link to the comparision.

    There is a big controversey over it and this forum is one of the main battlefields.

    That looks kickass. I’ll buy it since I don’t have the old trilogy.

    I like titties.

    So wait — are you saying that this XO project’s output is better than Lucasfilm’s?

    Nuhuh, I’m saying that the X) project is producing the best Laserdisc transfer possible and the DVD blows it away. Check out the Comparison pics.

    Okay — are we sure that these aren’t screengrabs from the SE trilogy discs a while back? Because those images are bigger than anamorphic, and the DVDs coming out in November will be non-anamorphic. So the quality shouldn’t be anywhere as close as the SE discs, simply because of the size of the image.

    Well I’m pretty sure that they are from the original cut of the film. But I mean screw Lucas for not going with a full blown restoration, I’ll probably grab and Divx/xVid of it.
