You have three options (according to The Hollywood Reporter). Amazon is offering $50 off the preorder of the whole set and $25 off the smaller sets. The suggested MSRP is $139.99 and $69.99 for the other two respectively:

For The Completists: Star Wars: The Complete Saga will feature all six live-action features, along with three additional discs and more than 30 hours of extensive special features including never-before-seen deleted and alternate scenes and an exploration of the exclusive Star Wars archives.

- For Those In Denial: Original Blu-ray Trilogy set will include Episodes IV-VI (1977′s A New HopeThe Empire Strikes Backand Return of the Jedi).
