    One of the guys here at work popped into xtra vision at lunchtime to see if they might be selling the star wars box set early. The guy there told him they had loads of copies in stock but that they got a call yesterday to say there was a problem with the return of the jedi disc so they all had to be recalled. Now either the guy was using this as an excuse to be able to hold out until Monday to start selling or there could be a delay in region 2 sales...

    i just got my copy from movietyme... region 1 this morning so i'll check out the disc to see if there's any problems over the weekend

    Hi,

    Any news on what the actual problem was, with the ROTJ disc(s)?

    nope the guy just said there was a problem and the sets had to be recalled... it would be pretty bad quality control if its the case

    The problem is, some New Hope discs are actually Retuen of the Jedi, but the artwork on the dic is for New Hope.
    I have the box set with this problem.

    lol with such a big release like this you would have thought they would have made sure a mistake like this was impossible, just hope it is not widespread but guess it could be the reason why some retailers like Amazon and Play havent shipped yet, still checking sets to make sure they are correct.

    Well, I called my local Xtra-Vision earlier to see how much they want for the boxset and all copies have indeed been recalled !!

    (I was calling as I'm so impatient waiting for my copy from DVD Soon to arrive :blush: )

    Mine arrived from Play.com this morning and even though I have tried out all the discs I did make sure to test A New Hope to see if it was the correct film and it is, cant really ask anymore than the recieve of release day and at £25.19 I am well happy :thumbsup:

    as i've said on other threads (how many star wars threads are there today!!) I've watched all three films and had no problems at all. Also i work a video shop and we've heard nothing of a product recall.

    I just went to the shop (in Limerick) and the guy told me the same story about the mix up in discs. They had to send them all back and only got more in today. Maybe it's just a problem with the discs in Ireland?

    yes the same thing is being said at some hmv stores.

    I had heard that it wasnt that new hope was actually return of the jedi just that some of the scenes of jedi popped up while watching anew hope. anyway amazon didnt ship till sunday which is odd so maybe they were changing box sets. the same guy at hmv said that about 2 in 5 sets were affected.

    Is this a wind up or what ?

    Rindless, you said that you've got this problem. Is your problem to do the whole of the ANH disk actually ROTJ, or is it small scenes poping up like described above ?

    Where did you buy your copy from and have you contacted them about a replacement ?

    I've bought a copy lunchtime today in WHSmiths, and I'm looking forward to sitting down and watching it with my 4 year old son tonght. I've been getting him all excited about watching these films for a while now - I'm going to be gutted if my copy is a faulty one !

    Someone posted on a forum I visit that they got their set on Saturday, put in the A New Hope disc and the Return of the Jedi menu came up so doesnt sound like a few scenes stuck into A New Hope but that the disc was mislabled, guess there could be two different faulty sets out there though.

    I've just checked the beginning of each film title, and mine came up correct. So hopefully this fault is not widespread. :thumbsup:
