Dont be so down on restoration

I'd love to see the original trilogy restored on DVD/Blu-ray. The Theatrical version, of course, not the bastardised crap that's been released so far.

Scam alert

They CLAIM to be raising money to redo the igloo, but really they're just going to sneak off to the Toshi Station to pick up some power converters.

I'd pay my own money to preserve this,...

just to stop George Lucas f**king around with it in the interests of "realising the original vision".

Might buy the book about how to get there.
