Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I had been waiting for a guide to the Lego Star Wars collections and thankfully one has arrived that delivers in almost all areas. The guide itself is well illustrated and is very up to date (includes sets that were brought out in August 2009)
The 96 pages may not seem much considering the volume of lego sets/figures that have been churned out since 1999. However the pages are filled with each set, when it was released and its product ID. The layout is also by chronology (what sets were released and when) and by each film. it also provides a good insight (aka 'Brick facts') into certain characters.
This book is not for those looking for 'what is the most rare, the most collectible', nor does it go into detail on ALL of the figures available. It does however illustrate the sets that have been released, shows what some of them do, and obviously what figures come with them.
The books also includes and exclusive Luke Skywalker mini figure !
Overall a good overview, well illustrated, great for all ages. One cannot wait to see something similar for Lego Batman and Indiana Jones.......

A book like this could have gone two ways. It could have been nothing more than a product catalogue for Lego, listing the sets they have made and telling you what they contained. Or it could have been yet another Lucasarts marketing tool - lots of glossy pictures of models of their iconic creation leaving you wanting nothing more than to go out and watch the films and buy more merchandise. Thankfully, the Lego Star Wars Visual Dictionary manages to avoid both extremes while incorporating elements of both.

The book does work as a complete catalogue of all the sets in the Lego Star Wars line. There's a timeline in the first few pages giving pictures of every box and the date of its release. As you go through you'll find further details of each set (and variants) on the relevant pages. Every version of the Vaders TIE fighter that has been release is shown, for example, along with date of release, number of pieces, and minifigures included. Where a character has been represented multiple times, its more likely that only one will be shown, but details are given of variant editions - how many times Luke Skywalker has been released, what colour his hands were and whether or not his lightsabre could actually light up, and so on. Not a bad place to start then if you're thinking of hitting the auctions and carboot sales to build a collections then.

There are times however, when it feels as if some unseen editorial force has slightly hamstrung the production. Some of the Lego Star Wars models are quite huge and packed with little details to make them feel authentic. Why then, are these sets not featured in matching detail? The Ultimate Collector's Millenium Falcon for example - the set has thousands of pieces and loads of moving parts including a detailed interior.

Format: Hardcover
I spent a while online looking at all the Star Wars dictionaries for my 5 year old. I was soooo pleased with this book when it arrived - and my partner was equally as excited... and we are not adult Star Wars enthusiasts!

My son lives and breathes Star Wars and has recently got the hang of building intricate space ships with his older brother's lego cast offs. To a five year old who wants to know everything there is to know about Star Wars lego - this is the book! It is a great book visually, the flip sequences in the bottom corners of the pages are a nice touch - Luke with his light sabre and a Storm Trooper marching... very cool.

My son has not put this down since he opened it and it's really giving him a very good incentive to learn to read long words!!!

The Luke figure that comes with the book was also an excellent bonus.

Can't recommend enough. May the force be with you.

This is a great book for all small boys. It describes each piece of lego made in the star wars theme. My children have poured over it again and again. Have now bought another two of these for nephews and children's friends.

Format: Hardcover
My son Peter loves Lego & Star Wars so the PS2 game is a firm favourite. When he saw this book in a shop he was immediately captivated. The book itself is big, bright & features extensive information on the versions of Lego released along with "brick data" about the variations & anomalies. The pictures are big & bold & he's not put the book down in the two weeks since it was delivered. So it may not be enough to satisfy the Lego/SW 'experts' and may feature a few errors or ommissions (I couldn't tell you myself as I'm not a fan!) but as a book for a child with a huge imagination, you can't go wrong.

I purchased this book for my very knowledgeable children (how do they know so much about all this). They rate it as 10 out of 10. I have no interest in Star Wars but rate Lego highly. I have to admit that the book is brilliantly presented, nicely detailed and a genuinely good read. The 'exclusive' Luke Skywalker minifigure is a real treat although I understand that the one being supplied now differs to the one originally supplied in 2009 books (eyes).LEGO Star Wars the Visual Dictionary (Dk)
