High-Def Digest's 'Star Wars' Blu-ray Giveaway: And the winner is...

Posted Tue Sep 20, 2011 at 03:05 PM PDT by

The biggest Blu-ray release of the year, if not the biggest release in the history of the format, has finally arrived: 'Star Wars: The Complete Saga' was released on September 16th!

As usual, George Lucas tinkered with the series a bit, and set off some controversy, but we'll be honest, we were still really excited for this release.

To celebrate the Blu-ray debut of one of the most successful film series of all time, we ran a contest last week. The Prize: A free copy of 'The Complete Saga' for one lucky High-Def Digest reader. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner!

Entry was pretty simple. Visit the High-Def Digest Forums and answer one question:

"When did you first see any of the 'Star Wars' movies? Tell us the story and what made that initial visit to the 'Star Wars' universe so memorable for you!"

We wanted to know how the movie made readers feel the very first time they sat down and watched Luke, Han, Obi-Wan and the rest of the gang take on Darth Vader and the Emperor. We wanted to know who they saw it with. If they slept on the sidewalk to get tickets on opening day. Maybe let us know if that was them in that matted old Chewbacca costume.

We got tons and tons of fantastic responses. After combing the posts for eligible participants, and randomly selecting an entry, we have a winner!

Congratulations to forum member kamikaze! Your copy of 'The Complete Saga' is on the way!
