i checked ebay and they are selling quite a few variety of star wars dvd set. Wanted to know if anyone has any knowledge about it. What's the difference between the asian dvd package (complete set) vs, the silver box region 1 set (only epidsode 4,5,6 and bonus package).

I would be real careful buying anything oversees, a lot of that crap is not the real deal. Why don't you just buy the Trilogy set that came out about a year ago, it can be found on reputible wegsites like Amazon/Walmart/Best Buy/etc...

Sometimes the Asian DVD's are black market, so you may not be getting what you are paying for. You can get the silver box set anywhere, you might want to try e-bay.

Here is the link to the avatar. I may remove it as folks with dial-up hate me, the file is over 1MB. It is Scarlett Johannson getting felt up by a gay reporter at the Globe Awards.

Well, "hate" is a little strong, but it does seem like my browser keeps uncacheing this .gif while keeping all kinds of other (smaller, older) junk around.

I bought the Star Wars Asian DVD's two years before they were released in the US. They are indeed pirated copies. While the Dolby and DTS sound is up to par, the video is no better than VCR quality. On top of that, your version may include Asian subtitles in the black bar area and could be distracting. Go with the US set.
