 Additional Information by cyclograph (5)   21/04/2003 - Last update: 05/10/2011 

This box set also includes a book: "George Lucas, The Creative Impulse" (ASIN/ISBN: 0-8109-3564-3)

Some early pressings of this set are known to have various mastering issues. The most serious are: weak or missing CC signal and 7 seconds missing from ESB at the start of side 3.

The majority of the remaining faults are spelling mistakes in subtitles & CC, and errors in the printed chapter guide & liner notes.

A copy of "The Definitive Collection Flaw List" by Ed Weiland can be read here.

Discs feature commentary from (in order of appearance): Ken Ralston, Ralph McQuarrie, George Lucas, Dennis Muren, and Frank Oz.

 Additional Information by wagtproductions    12/01/2022 

This disc was made by two manufacturers: Pioneer Japan and Mitsubishi. While the Mitsubishi pressing is superior to the Pioneer Japan pressing with CC and the entirety of ESB on it, it is noticeably more prone to rot than the Pioneer Japan pressing. My copy, which was manufactured by Mitsubishi has light rot on ROTJ sides 1, 2 and 6, whereas ANH and ESB are completely clean.
