Lined up this morning for the bonus extras Future Shop was offering. Got my lithographs and the mini Lightsabre (6 inches long and lights up). Also had a crack at the full size light sabre. 1 in 5 chance....I didn't win but one guy went home happy. Here is a question for buyers:
The English audio is stated to be 6.1 DTS Master audio. There are also Dolby 5.1 tracks with descriptive video and other languages but as far as I can tell no Dolby 5.1 English without descriptive video. Does this mean I will always hear the descriptive narration if I don't have a DTS decoder. My player is a Playstation 3. Please let me know your experience with these disks. I haven't opened mine yet and don't want to upgrade my entire sound system just for one movie.
I have to say that one thing I do like about this release is the decision to use minimalist (i.e. standard) packaging - I like it when movies fit into my shelf taking up a minimum amount of space. Conversely, I hate bloated boxed sets/tin cases that split multiple discs into single-disc cases or otherwise take up more shelf space than they need to.
For what it's worth, Costco had the complete saga (9 discs) for $77.xx ($78, basically). So if you missed one of the "limited time" sales you can still get it for less than the $90 or $100 "regular" price.
