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.......
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.Read more ›
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.
