4.0 out of 5 stars A very decent but not complete archive 26 Nov 2009
Length: 0:26 Mins
Here's a book for all those Star Wars and Indiana Jones fans. This book showcases the models, creatures, props, costumes, matte paintings and art used for the movies, the Star Wars prequels and the three Indiana Jones.

There's not a lot of writeup but they are always interesting to read. It's a great look behind the scenes are all the props used during filming. Sometimes the models are miniatures, sometimes they are life size, like Jabba the Hutt. There are a lot of close up shots on the miniature spaceships which shows details (or in-jokes) like tiny Star Wars and Playboy posters hanging on the cockpit. The book really features too many items to mention.

The matte paintings for backgrounds are pretty spectacular. It will definitely make you see the movies differently on re-runs, wondering what's real and what's not.

This is a nice archive that will sure to delight the fans. However for the comprehensive definitive guides, check out Star Wars Chronicles, Star Wars Chronicles: The Prequels and The Complete Making of Indiana Jones.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

5.0 out of 5 stars You wont regrett buying this. 29 July 1999
By A Customer
This is infinitely worth the price to any fan of Star Wars, George Lucas, Indiana Jones, Lucasfilms or any of his other movies. There are so many pictures and so much info you wont notice half of it until youve searched through the book several times. There are many unique parts of this book, so don't worry if you expect this to be a compliation of everything you already have.

Great close ups of most of the models and props used in all the Star Wars and Indiana Jones movies. Every fan will love to get a look at the detail of many objects (Especially love the detail of Darth Vaders mask when Luke took it off Darth's face).

Includes models, props, costumes, masks and mattes. A fan's dream. I'm taking off a point because I want more! more! more!
