I just want to start by saying that this is about the 12-disc DVD box set with Darth Vader on the front. It contains all six episodes of Star Wars as well as bonus features for each one.
While I believe this set was released in 2015, none of the 2011 Blu-Ray edits made it here. Yoda in The Phantom Menace remains a puppet, and Vader never yells "Nooo!" in Return of the Jedi. Personally, I was relieved.
The originals (IV, V, and VI) are in their 2004 remastered versions, but my favorite thing about this set is that, on the bonus discs, you get the original theatrical releases of the films. Now, I remember hearing a lot of complaints about the standalone DVD releases (not this one) with this feature saying that it was just the laserdisc version with letterbox format. I don't know if that is what is in this box set, but it looks like standard widescreen to me. No part of the screen seems to be cut off, and the video and sound quality are about as good as VHS if not a little better. No major flaws exist other than a slightly shaky screen that you will barely even notice. The contrast is fine. Everything looks good. The sound is a little muffled compared to the remastered versions, but that's a petty complaint as well.
I definitely think this set is definitely worth getting. It's great to own all of these wonderful movies and to see the original versions before all of the edits came in.
If you're thinking about it, I would say just get it.
P.S. Sorry, I'm not the best reviewer, photographer, or disc sorter. Lol. Just want to help. Hope this helps some of you make a decision. You won't regret it.
