.Definitely one of the rarest tapes in my collection and also one of the rarest in home video pioneer Magnetic Video's catalog. This VHS was originally released in 1979, the first Star Wars-related material on home video, and then re-issued a year later with a special trailer for The Empire Strikes Back. A trailer that can still only be found on this tape. In 1995, Kellogg's offered a cereal mail-in offer for a new edition of the making-of, but dropped the Empire trailer and replaced William Conrad's original narration. This might also mark the debut of a complete, unfaded picture of the cover on the Internet. The only other image I can find is a cut box with bleached colors.
