Good God!

Has he finally come around from his delusions, or did 20th Century Fox and Lucasfilm simply sap him down?

Han shoots FIRST!

Woah! Way to sell something... again!

You know why it;s only going to be out for a short while? That'll be because eventually they'll give in and release the whole siz episodes on DVD and make fanspay for it again!!

True. But personally, I just want the originals. Ep 1-3 can go and rot. I'm usually an obsessive completist, but not this time.

Why would I want to see them unaltered? It's cool to see the new scenes such as the space combat ones, the old ones were lame, and why would I want to see something as stupid as Han Solo shooting first :blink: it's beyond me...

It was the entire basis of his character. Greedo shooting first was a pathetic attempt to make Han a goody-two-shoes.

Personally Chewie should have smacked both of them upside the head and been the main character in all the films. He certainly gets all the best lines.

Liam Neeson's lines in Episode I for example are truly cringe-worthy.

The off-set banter must have gone something like:

Neeson: "So George, 30 years to plan it out and the Virgin Birth is the best plot you can come up with?"

Lucas: "Yup."

Neeson: "Can't we at least make Darth Sidious the father or something? Y'know, make it a bit like a self-fulfilling prophecy or some shit like that?"

Lucas: "Nope."

Neeson: "Prick."
