Star Wars: The Complete Saga comes to Blu-Ray this September

I hate myself….why? because I keep thinking how many more versions, complete with extras of these classic films are going to be wheeled out by Lucasfilm.

I told myself after I picked up the trilogy on DVD that would be it, no more Star Wars for me. The problem is now that they’re coming to Blu-Ray and the fact I don’t own any of the new trilogy I hear a small voice saying…”These are the discs you’re looking for”.

So I’ve gone from a definite non buyer to a maybe buyer…What about you?

    I have just enough rage and bitterness left over from what Lucas did with the prequels and endless moneygrubbing re-releases to say ‘meh’.
    Yeah, that’s about it. Meh.
