Earlier this week we brought you word that Darth Vader would be descending on Las Vegas during CES to deliver some "most impressive" Star Wars news.
As promised, Vader invaded Vegas on time, complete with a legion of his Imperial stormtroopers. The Dark Lord then went on to reveal to the show attendees that, for the first time ever, all six of the Star Wars movies would be available to buy in a complete Blu-ray set.
The news is hardly the "most impressive" announcement we were hoping for, but it's welcome all the same.
Fans can pre-order the Blu-ray collection now, ahead of its launch in September of this year. The Complete Saga will be available in three different sets: The first is a $139.99 nine-disc set, which includes all six films and a crazy amount of extras. The second offers the prequel trilogy (I-III), and the third is the original trilogy (IV-VI)--with both priced at $69.99.
A word of advice--wait for the sales if you plan to pick up the prequel trilogy. Even those of you who are die-hard Star Wars, just remember this--you will be paying to willingly see Jar-Jar Binks on your HDTV.
The best and most complete Star Wars collection is finally coming to homes - until it inevitably gets a 3D re-release in a few years time that is.
If The Force is indeed with you, you can pre-order now from Amazon.
