Hi all,

I'm going to be pre-ordering this in the next week or so. I'm just wondering where the best place to pre-order the set from? Also this may help others looking for it too?

Are there any discount codes for this available to make it cheaper than advertised?

Are there any other versions than the ones below? Maybe some sort of super limited edition over in the US?

The Complete Saga
Zavvi £67.45 Sensitype Pre-order Edition (Enter code PP5OFFZAVVI for £5 off making the total £62.45)
Play.com £67.49 with an exclusive Film Cell.
Amazon.co.uk £67.49 with an exclusive Film Cell.

The Prequel Trilogy
Play.com £33.69
Amazon.co.uk £33.69

The Original Trilogy
Play.com £33.69

I'll update the OP with revised prices.

Don't suppose you know what the 'Sensitype Pre-Order Edition' is?

Slightly off topic, but I'm also interested in the different types of packaging because there seems to be a digibook and amaray promo pics floating around...

The Star Wars Sentitype, is a single 35mm frame reproduced from original footage, mounted and then numbered for that extra collectibility factor. So looks like its the proper name for the film cell.

Anybody who collects Maximiles points can also use them to pre-order.

I have enough to get 1 from Maximiles and 1 from the Panny offer. :smashin:

I completely forgot about all the points I'd saved on my Play.com credit card, checked statement and I have £50 worth!! Result, so that makes £17.49 for the whole lot :D

Have to say that the upgrade in picture quality is going to have to be pretty darn impressive for me to dip this time. Agreed that Episodes 1-3 are completely unwatchable.

I sense that the consumers' patience is waning with blu ray marketing gimics reaching a peak. The Lord of the Rings debacle and substandard quality of the theatrical releases left a very sour taste in a lot of mouths.

Loading times seem to be becoming an increasing problem, with 'stacked' discs such as Alien Anthology, making the medium less user friendly, regardless of upgrade in picture quality.

I am a big fan of bluray but I fully understand the disappointing uptake.

We wait and see.

Cancelled pre-order, I'll wait until the full boxset is £20

I will jump in at £40 for all of them. Not bothered about the extras so the two separate trilogies for £20 each will do.
