I am a Star Wars fan, not a collector, so I would agree.
I am looking to archive digitally as many versions of the original unaltered trilogy I can find, with the hopes of restoring the film without all of the modern changes.

So yes, I am after the best quality presentations possible, the only reason I would want an 'original' print would be if it had some different frames to a bootleg.

We are not disagreeing : just describing different approaches of collecting.
Of course, the Holy Grail are original prints in pristine condition - which was the case for the set I have sold a few days ago.

Hi Baudime, just to let you know the Star Wars trilogy arrived yesterday morning, just in time for my Elmo to burn its lamp socket... [Big Grin]

"The Empire Strikes Back"

What Elmo is it? My GS has done the same. One pin always seem to corrode. Dissimilar metals on pin & contact?

I love the smell of film in the morning.

@ David: It's a GS1200. Just like my Beaulieu, i love it to pieces, but then, like my Beaulieu it behaves like a Diva! My Eumig on the other hand has been chugging along since the day i was born, when my father bought it, which means 40 flawless years in service.

@Baudime: i WILL cherish them! Be assured of that [Smile]
