    is worth (the silver one). I'm thinking of sellin mine on ebay, as i have bought the originals on laserdisc. Bearing in mind the boxes are perfect, as are Jedi and a new hope, only empire has some damge to the first five cm of tape as it got caught in my player. I tried looking at other boxsets to get a rough price and they varied immensley.

    thanks

    Last time I saw the platinum w/s ones they were going for £75. "Rip-off" was what I was thinking. I bought all of my silver vhs's seperatly for under £35, and I'd NEVER pay £75 for all 3 on dvd let alone vhs. Besides, I hear they're doing a re-release in November (with a 10 minute making of Ep2), so it may be worth getting rid ASAP before it becomes common knowledge

    I'd probably wait for these, even if it is a ripoff.

    August 29, 2000 -- Unavailable for the past three years, the Star Wars Trilogy will be released by Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment (TCFHE) on VHS videocassette on November 21, 2000 for a limited time. The millions of new fans who discovered Star Wars for the first time with the release of Episode I, can now continue the adventure and explore the most popular film saga of all time. Children and parents alike will now be able to follow the adventures of such timeless trilogy characters as the strong-willed Princess Leia, heroic Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and his sidekick Chewbacca, the trusty droids C-3PO and R2-D2, and the wise Jedi master Yoda.
    The limited time release will be available in both Pan and Scan and Widescreen. It features an exclusive, ten-minute sneak peak of the next installment in the Star Wars saga, Episode II. This bonus introduction describes how the film will fit into the overall saga and includes interviews with George Lucas, as well as new and returning cast and crew members. Episode II is currently in production in Australia, Tunisia, Spain and England and scheduled for release in the summer of 2002. TCFHE will make additional copies of the top-selling Episode I available on VHS videocassettte for the holidays. The Star Wars Trilogy, as seen in theaters and on video in 1997, is priced at $39.98/$44.98 Canada (S.R.P.). Episode I will be priced at $19.98.

    Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi have entertained and inspired moviegoers for decades by exploring the conflict between good and evil, and between technology and humanity. They strike a chord by celebrating heroism and the limitless potential of the individual. The trilogy was a defining event for one generation and now it can now be embraced by a new generation, assuring its place as a timeless epic of grand design and boundless fun. Releasing the Star Wars Trilogy at this time allows new fans as well as enthusiasts to enjoy the complete Star Wars collection.
