Ordered it on Amazon, but the shipping date didn't change to reflect the new launch date. So I changed the shipping method from two day shipping to... two day shipping, and the shipping date updated =D

Hoping Amazon gets this set shipped out quick enough where those who ordered through them will receive the sets the same time as those running out to Best Buy get them on the actual release date - so we can all enjoy them that whole weekend. I'm not a fan of paying shipping costs and have noticed that items I order with free shipping (over $25) arrive quicker than those I pay regular shipping costs for.

If they can ensure shipments arriving the actual day of release like they did with each of the Harry Potter books, they can do that with Star Wars, too! However, unlikely...

Either way, just glad to finally have these films in the best format available!

Yes, and having by now, outdated codecs? Yeah, that would've been a GREAT idea... Before assuming something, just wait and see, huh? People are always saying Lucas is maximising cash flow, guess what? He's a businessman and wants to make money. I'm sure all directors do it, if not, then they're idiots. Waiting was wise, IMO, but don't make assumptions about the quality of the product.

Not that I don't appreciate a sooner release date, but why the hell retailers hold "all sorts of launch parties" on the 27 but they can on the 16th?
Well, as long as I get my Original Trilogy earlier I'm good. Couldn't care less about the prequels though.

I'm looking forward to both the new features and whatever changes Lucas has made to the films. I know for a fact that puppet Yoda from TPM is being replaced with the digital version from the other two films because Lucas released pics of it years ago. I'm really hoping some of the other scenes are re-integrated like the extended lightsaber fight on Tatooine.

@CacaPooPoo: Well Fri. is the beginning of the weekend (most b&ms have more staff on Fri., Sat., & Sun.), and its around most ppls payday. Obviously, they could do release parties whenever they want, but I imagine that for retailers, doing a release party(ies) on days where they already schedule extra ppl is easier than having to do it on a day when many of their part-time weekend staff would be unavailable.

great news they changed the date,but i will not pre-order untill i see a official statemend that the original trilogy box set does contain the theatrical versions,i have no interest in the "modified" versions at all,erasing a actors face in the end is a sheer lack of respect towards the original actor and butchery to the movie,i cannot and will not tolerate it.
i do have my hopes still set tough that lucas will announce it the unaltered versions will be there due to demand from us the fans and buyers!
all us purists want are that the movies be cleaned properly for the blu ray release (4K scans at least!)and to include the original audio track lossless ofcourse:)

As for PQ goes, the biggest improvement should be Ep. I. If you look at the DVD, the PQ is absolutely atrocious. For instance, when the droid tanks roll into Theed on Naboo, you see them in the background. The resolution is so bad and washed out with high contrast, that you can't make out what's really there.

<sarcasm>Thank you for those comments, they have been forwarded to Lucasfilm Ltd and 20th Century Fox Film Corporation for further action to be taken</sarcasm> Really now, what's done is done. For what it's worth, I don't like it that they're not releasing the OT versions on BD either, but it's just the way it has worked out, like it or not. I am going to enjoy this release as the most anticipated BD for me, of all time, and I'm focusing on what we DO have, not what we DON'T.

People make out Lucas to be the next Hitler or something, and that is utter crap. Time and time again people take this stuff too far, I think Star Wars is the greatest film franchise of all time, but I don't sit there and cry about the fact that the OT versions will probably not be in this set. Oh, and by the way, "bad" in this case, is entirely subjective. Human beings are alive, that is a fact. Whether the prequels or SEs are bad, is an opinion. And people are entitled to hold either view, but saying that Lucas is a despicable human being, and the worst thing in the world, is utter bullshit. It's the movie business. Money is as money does. Buy it, don't buy it. Get over it.

Like Lucas or not, at least he succeeded where Warner Home Video failed with The Lord of The Rings EE, he gave us a...sorry three decent BD sets. Might not release the original untouched versions of the first trilogy, but unlike LOTR EE BDs, the set will consist of nothing BUT BDs and no need to change discs to watch the whole movie.

So because Lucas did not fumble the ball with this release, unlike Warner did with LOTR EE BDs, I'll upgrade my Star Wars collection.
