It perfectly captures the spiriit of the movies. They couldn't have done a better job.

That original poster is so much better and reflects the dynamic adventure aspect of the story.
Just to throw my dos centavos into the mix here, but sorry Beast
, I am in agreement with KORIN
... the Complete Saga cover makes me want to http://i.slickdeals.net/images/smilies/emot-puke.gif
. I much, much, MUCH prefer the separate trilogy covers, esp. the way they have a mirror effect to them (Yoda facing left with montage on right, Darth Vader facing right with montage on left)... very cool and is more or less a new take on the old posters. But the Saga cover... WTF?!?
Granted, it is all about the innards, but I display my fave box sets (at least, my fave looking
boxes ;)) on top of my DVD/BD case, with all the "regular" ones inside. (Currently all DVD: Batman Anthology, Indiana Jones Trilogy, LotR EE, Matrix Ultimate, and Star Wars 2004.) Now that we know that the Saga set will only have 1 extra disc rather than 3, it makes the cover even less forgivable. In fact, I am considering leaving the SW DVD box on top and "hiding" the BD box with the rest of my collection.
Making matters worse, I pre-ordered the Saga set with a coupon (50% off... you know where... :D), so when it arrives I might in theory be able to do an even exchange for the two trilogy sets (since they add up to the pre-coupon price), but chances are I will only be credited my actual purchase price, nullifying the use of the coupon. Guess I should have just pre-ordered all three with the coupon to have myself "covered" (har har har), but I thought that the black, blue, and plum covers were the actual covers. Silly me.
Thankfully the LotR EE BD box looks suh-weet, so that will definitely get top and center billing on my case. I will be sad to retire the EE DVD box from the spot is has maintained for the last 6+ years, but it will definitely find a nice home somewhere else in the house (bedroom ent. ctr. possibly...?).
EDIT: Hopefully some, dedicated, like-minded, PhotoShop savvy fan will make a new cover for the Saga using the separate trilogy art... then I will just print it out and glue it the frak on!
Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled bickering.
