Star Wars Episode II, DVD, Bootleg, China 2002

Here is a rip of the official NTSC DVD, compressed to a single layer disc. This caused a bit of hoopla when it surfaced, as the release date of the official disc was still two months away. Someone somewhere got hold of an early copy and wasted no time spreading it on the internets. This disc was manufactured in september 2002, the official DVD wasn't released until november the same year. They even kept the audio commentary.

This disc is bit-for bit identical to this bootleg. The VOB-files are exactly the same. No honour among thieves.

The heavy grain on the cover is just the coarse plastic of the case. It actually feels kind of nice to the touch. As a collector I can appreciate even the tactile differences between bootlegs!
