Hi all

I was just in the Cockermouth Sainsburys and picked up the Star Wars Trilogy Box Set (4 Discs) seen here for £9.99!

http://www.play.com/DVD/DVD/4-/164454/Star-Wars-Trilogy-Box-Set/Product.html

No idea if this is national or a one-off but well worth a look!

Dead chuffed.

Great price but already have far too many copies of the films but might buy another set to leave sealed. Do it come in a cellophane? Also are the stickers on the outside easy to remove?
#2
Voted hot as excellent price.

Just to note I think these are the ones that George Lucas re-released in the mid 90's with added effectsetc and not the original cinema versions

No cellophane but an easy sticker to remove :)

waiting for it on bluray.

Judging by the price the DVD set has been for all this time, that will be one expensive set :P

I have been looking for this for a while, and I don't want to pay too much, but the one in my area doesn't have this deal on so it looks like I am waiting for a while longer :(

You'll have a long wait. There aren't even rumours of a Blu(e)-Ray release, let alone a leak or even a hint. The only rumour I was aware of is that the source isn't there to give a Blu(e)-Ray justification without spending a fortune just to get it onto that format.
Close Encounters will give you an example of what's possible, fast film stock makes any decent transfer impossible, it'll look good but not great. The sound will improve greatly though i suppose.

Buy this and upscale.:thumbsup:

I bought boxsets from sainsburys for £12 each yesterday, they had the prequel 1/2/3 and another set with 4/5/6 but my box is different to the one shown here. The original 3 films have 6 discs in them which includes the original versions shown at cinemas and also the remastered films. It was an excellent bargain to be able to get all 6 movies for £24....and the deal was listed on this site :-D

;-)

Better deal to get all 6 discs if you ask me. This is still a great hot deal though.

dude i'd save your money, buying something to not use it is pretty odd at best, at worst it hints at ocd

unless of course the item in question dramatically increases its value as a result. (nothing wrong with investing)

just ask yourself this: who on earth in the future whould be crazy enough, and be allowed to be let out to buy, let alone possess money to buy a "sealed copy" of a UK Region copy of starwars far in the future, which as far as i can tell has nothing unique about it? (lol remember all those "film cell certificates" which are now worth as much as ...errr the frame)

i know there are mental people out there, and star wars in particular attracts the saddest of the sad (worse than trekkies by my accounts), but i don't quite think you'll make any money on keeping an arbitrary copy of a release of a dvd sealed.

but then again perhaps you live on a houseboat and need a sealed copy "just incase"?

I'm sure they will come to Bluray at some point even if its only the 720p version that was on sky/fox HD. They will have to replace it at some point so people can keep enjoying the films as what will happen when DVD's have gone. I have original copies of starwars on laserdisc and betamax and vhs even though I have nothing to play them on, not that I would open them anyway.

Or you could download the HD .MVK's off the internet and watch them like I have.

I guess this was aimed at me? Yes I'm sad as I like starwars. Yes I have copies of them on laserdisc (both editions) vhs, betamax, vcd and dvd's. I have lightsabers a stormtrooper helmet and a Han Solo costume which yes I have worn to a party. Also loads of toys still sealed up. But as with most things collectible keeping them as original is what people do. Comics/stamps its all the same.

So as you point out it will never be worth anything but I just want to add a sealed set to my collection. How sad!:)

Ps welcom to HUKD!

well good luck to you friend ,you seem a decent enough chap, and no man ever needs justify his hobby expenditure, just thought from an investment point o fview it didn't make much sense.

Never understood the mania of sci-fi and starwars, and in truth think at somepoint people deep down know its a bit unnessecary as with all things, if you obsess about one thing enough you lose the enjoyment you got from it in teh early days and just do it out of routine/habit.

but the world needs its collectors though, and in some weird way other people benefit too, (think certain knowledge pools would be stumped without some collectors), just dont let it rule your life dude.

Dvd's won't go. Blu(e)-Ray players support DVD, even upscale them, the uptake of blu(e)-ray has been predictably slow, far slower than tape to DVD you can pick up DVD players for £10 so there's no shortage.

A collector is a collector is a collector.
Enjoy it in anyway or as long and fervently as you like. :thumbsup:
