You can get either the regular DVD or the special edition pack. I am not really sure what's in the regular DVD, but I just bought the special edition at a store today and you get everything. Obviously, the biggest reason you would get the special edition version is because of the shirt. I love it. The details and colors are amazing. What's funny is, it looks like C-3PO/Quagmire is asking R2-D2/Cleveland about his sister's lesbot.
Additional goodies that you get are the baseball style cards, where one side you can put together and its a jigsaw puzzle (I wont spoil it for you), the 3-D glasses so you can watch the fight scene in 3-D. The 19 page booklet is included with sketches and storyboard. Another great feature is that Disc 2 includes the movie where you can transfer it to computer, video iPod, iPhone, and other portable media players. What that means is you can watch the movie on your iPhone, Zune, etc. The final piece is the box. Its actually a great finish piece that puts everything into place neatly and you can even use it as a centerpiece display to show off.
It's worth it. I don't think it's a rip-off like other people claim. You get a lot for 25 dollars, and I am happy and I know that this is something I will enjoy for a really long time. Freakin' Sweet.
As for the jokes, not all are slam-dunks but there are far more hits than misses. The only segment that brought things to a screeching halt was the "Dirty Dancing" musical number.
There are a few clever jokes that poke fun at the original movie's lapses in logic. The ending is a bit abrupt, but maybe we can chalk that up to the fact that FG already did the Throne Room Medal Ceremony scene (the final scene in "Star Wars") in an earlier episode of the TV series. They already used up the best ending.
I bought the collector's edition. The bonus goodies are kinda neat so long as you buy the thing at a sale price.
The collector's edition includes a pair of 3-D glasses to watch a 3-D bonus segment following the escape from the Death Star, but the effect doesn't really work that well.
The set also includes a second disc that lets you download the entire episode to your PC or iPod. I don't know if that is exclusive to the Collector's edition or if it comes with the standard edition too.
Collector's edition comes with a T-shirt too, but being a man of Peter Griffin-esque girth, it simply ain't gonna fit me.
If you just want the this for the epsisode alone, then I suggest buying Family Guy - Blue Harvest -- the bare bones DVD. Granted, the price is still a bit steep for just 2 episodes, but to be fair they pack it with a ton of special features and a a bonus disc with a "portable digital copy of Blue Harvest" that's compatible with iTunes & Windows Media Players.
But with the Special Edition, you get much more, and as a collector and fan, that is what really appeals to me. Just read the Product Description for the full list. As for the actual show, fans of either franchise will probably find a lot to like. Though it is a spoof, it remains very faithful to the original Episode IV in many respects. The humor was great, though the some of the parts dragged a little. The couch in the trash compactor bit was funny, but it seemed to go on bit long. The musical numbers didn't add much for me, and I was not overly thrilled at the use of the old pedefile as Obi Wan. It seem innapropriate somehow. For those little niggles I dropped a star.
Overall though, a fun and worthwhile package for Star Wars and Family Guy fans everywhere!
Just one other niggle -- Amazon dropped the price to just below $25 so it does not qualify for Super Saver Shipping. Not cool guys.
