I just ordered all 4 Star WArs on DVD from Hong Kong. All are in English/even the covers. They have subtitles in other languages. I have never seen these before. Does anyone else have these that could let me know if they are any good? I would appreciate it. Thanks.

The bootlegs aren't bad, quality-wise: I have them, because there's likely to NEVER be any other way to get the original version of the trilogy.

There's a long "review" thread about them here on the site, if you do search. However, any discussion or inquiries (in this thread *OR* any other) about exactly how to get bootleg discs (or how you got yours) is considered inappropriate and will result in a locked thread.

There's a slight problem with audio-sync on some parts of the discs, however. Some people find it awful, some people aren't bothered much. I belong to the second group.

It depends which ones you got.
I got the ones mentioned in the link that adamblast posted. The audio sync problems are a bit annoying, but since it is rumored that Lucas will never rerelease Star Wars in any other form than the Special Editions (I've even heard rumors that he destroyed the negatives to the original versions, etc... I wonder if that is true?)
I got these dvds. I wanted to have the original versions of Star Wars in widescreen (I sold my P&S vhs). These are the only bootlegs I have ever bought, and they will probably the only ones I will ever feel a NEED to buy.
As far as bootlegs of the SEs go, and Episode 1, I would just wait for the real things to come to dvd. Episode 1 comes out later this year.

It's short for Star Wrassling--I think it's on UPN or something...
