Twelve years is a long time to wait, but that’s how long it’s taken me to finally – FINALLY! – finish converting my Star Wars “faces” original trilogy laserdiscs to DVD. Even though I’m fully aware of (and already have downloaded) the vastly superior Despecialized Editions as well as the Team Negative 1 30mm scan, this is one of those things that has been on my “must finish” list if only to say that it’s done. I also created a 16-page booklet to preserve as much as possible the original laserdisc covers, inside and out.

Oh, by the way, Vizio has been spying on you. No joke.
