    Years ago I saw an exhibit of Star Wars toys at my school. This was to coincide with the re-release Episode 4 in 1997. Among all the action figures, there was an unopened George Lucas in his director outfit with a beard. I have never seen it before or since. I haven't even heard of such an item ever existed.
    Yes it did, but only for that year. The info I got about Lucas in a Storm Trooper uniform was in the newspaper and it mentioned that earlier figure. Lucas said he was pleased that they put his likeness in a Storm Trooper "disguise" just as Luke Skywalker and Han Solo disguised themselves as Storm Troopers to rescue the Princess.

    If you like X-wings and Y-wings, here're mine:

    Truer words were never spoken.

    Lucas finally caught on that he had yet another cash cow in the barn after years of Star Wars fans pointing it out for him.

    I can think of a few more ways...

    I didn't buy the DVD release because I heard about the alterations. Actually, I did buy it, but gave it away as Christmas present. I bought it for myself, but it became a handy gift.

    There are a lot of people who didn't buy the DVD release of Star Wars because they didn't like the changes. Of course there are a lot of people who will want to own every single version of Star Wars ever produced. So yeah, as long as there are suckers born every second.

    Hmmm...I may have to dig out my old copy of Return of the Jedi to compare.
