Thanks, but not for me. I'd probably just get mad when I came across a frame that could have been used to create good Blurays of the original versions and it would sour me on the whole thing.

Maybe when it's under $100 on Amazon

I'd never pay that much for something like this.

3 G's? I don't think so. I'll just go watch the movies instead.

Okay, I watched the video last night, it's pretty impressive and a lot bigger than that picture makes it out to be. It's admittedly a neat project, but as I feared, it made me mad that George could spend two years going through the movies frame by frame and putting this together, but then say it would too expensive to restore the originals.

If these were done in a smaller size, closer to the really nice making-of bookings we've gotten on ANH and ESB I might be tempted, but not at the price they're asking.

Nice. Here's another image. Looks like it consists of 2 separate volumes.
