Check out the 21 disc Star Wars: The Complete Saga – Imaginary Edition

Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope is incredible on Blu-ray. I have not had such an emotional experience watching Star Wars in a long time. It was definitely worth going without watching or even listening to the saga for over a year.

Incidentally, I have finally settled on watching them in “Flashback Order” (IV, V, I, II, III, VI), as described at the very end of the “From Saga Order To Tarantino Style” post.

While I love the storybook idea and overall sturdiness of the box for Star Wars: The Complete Saga, I dislike the way the nine discs are housed within it. I am also not a big fan of the cover art.

Therefore, I have found a new home for the Blu-rays, an acrylic blue Vaultz CD wallet. It is much easier to access the discs, plus the case even has a Star Wars vibe. If only I could somehow replace that Vaultz logo with a Star Wars logo, it would be perfect.

Star Wars, The Complete Saga – 20 Disc Imaginary Edition (Vaultz case)

Except for the commentary tracks, none of the special features from the various Star Wars DVD releases are repeated on the Blu-rays. Since the Vaultz case holds 24 discs, I decided to significantly expand the scope of Star Wars: The Complete Saga by adding in discs with the missing content.

I am hoping that eventually the folks over at designpaulchampagne.com will create a Star Wars saga tin that can house the Blu-rays and other discs. Perhaps I would be able to incorporate this Imaginary Edition into the tin.

No time to worry about that now, though. Tonight, The Empire Strikes Back!
