Return of the Jedi Special Edition, DVD, Bootleg "5-star collection", China 2002

The gold standard in bootlegs! These, so-called "5-star" versions were supposedly superior to previous bootlegs. The claim of anamorphic widescreen was bogus, as was the DTS logo, but they fooled many into springing for this new set to replace previous bootlegs. The discs did have less compression due to being dual-layered, nice menus, a trailer for each film and a good rip of the laserdisc's 5.1 surround sound.

The bootleggers actually made an effort to misrepresent these as official releases. The "5-star collection" moniker aped 20th Century Fox's own special edition nomenclature. The cover art is quite nice, I must admit.
