Is This Really the Cover of the Complete Star Wars Blu-Ray Set?

?Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuccckk. Yeah, that’s just what I wanted, George. No lightsabers, no Darth Vader, no Han Solo, no spaceships, just Lil’ Anakin, right in the middle, and mostly transparent Luke, just to remind me of which trilogy you no longer give a shit about. And a big shot of Tatooine, if case I’d forgotten for a second that you decided that 2/3rds of the important shit that happens in the Star Wars universe has to take place there. Sigh.

For the record, the Original Trilogy box set cover has a cool shot of Darth Vader and inexplicably large pics of Obi-Wan and the Emperor (seriously, are Luke, Leia and Han not important enough to be more than a quarter-inch?) while the Prequel box has a big shot of CGI Yoda, which was to be expected.

Honestly, I’m thinking of giving these a pass. I might not be able to, but at least now I’m thinking about it. He’s clearly going to release another set in a few years, with more — or at least different — extras. Of course, it helps that I’ve already read tomorrow’s Daily List, too…
