    Question Hyperspace - Worth it??

    OK - so this could be merged into a few places, but I had to ask:

    Those of you with Hyperspace access - is it worth it?

    I'm torn over whether to subscribe. I will go on record that for almost a $40 magazine subscription (Insider) you should have automatic access. But I guess I'm wondering how great the Hyperspace content is? I assume it promises to be even better as the production process moves along.

    Your responses are appreciated.

    So far, from what I've read and seen....I'd say yes. Especially after the live chat with Rick McCallum last night. Not to mention the on set web diary. And the few spoilers that have already slipped out thru there.

    As for getting free access with the Insider Subscription, they are really two differnt beasts. And remeber, that they have to pay for the web documentarian's room and board while he's over in Australia. Lucas isn't footing the bill for him. So it's not like they are making a bundle off this.

    And besides, as much complaining as there was about wanting to see more of the production after seeing the E1 DVD "The Beginning" documentary, it's a great asset to delve into the production of the final film in the Star Wars Saga.

    In my opinion, it's more then worth it. Especially since you can pay more then $20.00 for a year of a sci-fi magazine subscription. And with the printing time and such, the news is usually old by the time the magazine hits the news stands. Here you're getting fresh info, straight from the source.

    I'm saying yes too, but only because of the McCallum chat and the exclusive video. I think it would have been possible for StarWars.com to provide all the info without charging the fans, but then again it's early days and as more and more exclusive content come up I will probably realise what the $19.95 was worth .
    I also like it because the UK lack a decent up-to-date magazine with exclusive info. So Hyperspace is the best place for me to get that info .

    They still need more video stuff. Everything else they put up is posted on the websites. I know the Clone Wars cartoons will be available the day they are aired but that isn't enough. The Webcam maybe $5 worth. No audio and updated every 20 seconds, bleh! I would like to see more deleted scenes and I would like them to fix up some deleted scenes, no scene mentioned. I would also like a full hour documentary every 3-6 months and I think for it being online that what I'm asking for is not unreasonable. Oh, and one more thing, an exlcuisve silver figure from Hasbro since every promotion these days needs a silver figure.

    Yah yah, I know but still they could throw in a silver fugure. I mean can't they? Okay, maybe for an extra 100 Jedi master points but come on where is my silver figure. And what the heck about my points. I know they said they have a program in works but how about having special offers to those who pay for hyperspace and as well special offers to members of the fan club and even better offers to those who have both such as me and I'm sure the rest of you.

    My input would be no, because my current hardware makes it impossible for me to enjoy any of the stuff there.

    I'd like to go on the record and state that any doubt in my mind that Lucas is a money-hungry Hutt has been dispelled by my brief glance at the Hyperspace website. I guess those of us without DVD-ROMs and top of the line computers aren't worth Uncle George's time anymore.

    I've looked at the site and the l-sabers are listed as $349 . Is that with or without the $75 off?
