First of all you see these things all over e-gay and what not so i was wondering:
1. Are they For real? In other words not bootlegged.
2. IF so does anyone have them?
3. If you do how is the picture quality?

I know that Lucas is finally getting off his duff and atleast saying that he will be realeasing them here next( just episode eps 4, 5, and 6 ) year but it's so hard to wait.....

None of these can be legit... they're probably just the regular movie vidcapped and burned onto a DVD.

I don't think so Chooie,, I have seen them on legit sites that import stuff from HK( of course now that I need to know where I can't remember, I'll try to find the link). Now granted they were alot more expensive than the ones you see on egay.....

No. The original Trilogy is available on LaserDisc, but TPM is only available on LaserDisc in Japan. Any DVDs have prolly been made from the LDs.

>>IF so does anyone have them?

Who's anyone? Stores or peeps here?


>>If you do how is the picture quality?

I dunno. No guarantees with booters.

LOB the ones I have seen are DVDs!

Dirk has a good point,, if they were bootlegged I would bet that would be the source they used.

When I was asking about quality I meant it anyone here had them what did they think. About it and what not. I don't think I would be willing to take the risk of getting them unless it was pretty cheap. I just hate seeing them around.. makes me so anxious..;)

Chef:

The original trilogy DVD's are transfers from the LASERDICS. The Phantom Menace is on LaserDisc in Japan (legit) and on VCD. I imported the VCD version of the Phantom Menace for playing in my portable DVD. It is worse than VHS but the soundtrack is awesome. As far as getting the bootleg DVD look at eb@y. I don't own them so I can't comment.

If you're getting the LD, be warned that the alien language is subtitled in Japanese, so if you haven't remember your TPM lines and can't read Japanese it isn't so good I would imagine.
The LD version is great, I don't see why people HAVE to see a DVD release. If you care enough about video in the first place you'd have an LD player anyway.
