I clearly remember in back in '99 when TPM was in theatres, a scene when Anakin is leaving Tatooine to go with Qui Gonn, we briefly see the famous shot of Vader's shadow in the background, which was used in the teaser poster. Now when I watch the video version, it's not there! Why was it cut? Was it there to begin with? Am I imagining things, or am I going Insane?

I don't think it was ever there to begin with. There is a shot in AOTC where Anakin's shadow (on Tatooine) looks a bit like Vader, but I don't think it ever happend in TPM.

That image was created only for the poster, and never appeared in the film. I saw it in theaters 7 times total including the December re-release and never saw any Vader shadows. And I was looking too.

It was there, just like that scene in ANH where Luke is observing the space-battle from Tatooine... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Dangit, I am going nuts! I guess this is another case of Luke slicing a steel rod into seven pieces on Dagobah, or Luke building his lightsaber in Ben's hut on Tatooine...

If I remember correctly he had the Vader shadow in Watto's shop (near the steps?), I haven't watched TPM is some time so I can't remember exactly now.

I never heard of the rod thing, but where would Luke get a steel rod on Dagobah? Also the Lightsaber building thing was in the early script for ROTJ asnd probably the novelization. I believe it found it's way into Shadows of the Empire and that's where you might remember it.

No, I'm refering to other people who claim to have seen these things in ESB and ROTJ. I know for a fact that these scenes never appeared in the films.
The steel rod scene on Dagobah comes from the ESB Marvel Comics adaptation.

There's no Vader shadow in Watto's shop. There's a deactivated droid (or something) in the background of a few shots that some people thought looked like Vader ... but that was really stretching it.
