5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best 'Star Wars'-Sourcebooks in years 25 Nov 2011
Format:Hardcover
This book is without any doubt one of the best 'Star Wars'-Sourcebooks that have been published in the last years. It's filled with secrets and detailed information about the Falcon, but also about the YT-1300 Series. The first chapter about the history and the YT-1300 Series in general, is truly amazing and is reminiscent of the terrific West End Games Sourcebooks from the nineties.

The book features beautiful new artwork, new schematics and the ultimate floor plans of the Falcon. The book features a lot of technical information, but veteran SW-author Windham manages to include plenty of interesting material so it never becomes too technical.

It features a lot of new information, plenty of retcons and it's by far the best book we've ever seen (and probably even will see) about the Millennium Falcon. Its price is very low for just an excellent book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haynes YT-1300 Owners Guide 11 Nov 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
"She may not look like much ... but she's got it where it counts." (quote by Han Solo), and the same to true of this book. I refer of course to the Haynes volume Millennium Falcon: Modified YT-1300 Corellian Freighter - Owner's Workshop Manual. An official Star Wars product, drawing on the numerous skills of author Ryder Windham, and lavishly illustrated by Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas, this 125 page technical manual is for the most part pleasing and offers much on what is probably the galaxies most famous flying junkyard. Who among us does not know the Falcon, or the exploits of Captain Solo and his Wookiee first mate - but can we say the same of his transport, the Millennium Falcon? The book not only introduces us to some of the Falcon's background, but it attempts to explain her 'stock light' status and some of her design ancestry. Certain details have been taken from canon sources, including the novel entitled "Millennium Falcon", the West End Games series of galaxy guides, various commentaries and other stories as well as the movies in which she made appearances - but it is the technical diagrams which drew me to this volume and for the most part I was not disappointed.

Rather surprisingly the authors choose to include "toys" which were offered with certain large toy versions of the Falcon as supplemental vehicles in their book, most notably the F-LER (which I have never heard of and I am a collector) and the non-canon "Mini-Fighter" which made its debut with the "new millennium falcon" toy. The book includes some nicely rendered computer generated images of the Falcon in profile, showing considerable surface detail, a series of monochrome line-drawings of her interiors both in isometric and flat-plan formats.

4.0 out of 5 stars No use in a tight spot 18 Nov 2011
Format:Hardcover
Avoid. Using this book in a vain attempt to fix the notoriously fickle hyperdrive unit of my ship for the umpteenth time, I found I had a number of pieces left over after stripping down and reassembling the entire unit according to the instructions. None of them correspond to the diagrams in the book - I realise that these ships are often "bodged" with off-brand parts (it seems "Made on Alderaan" is no longer a guarantee of quality), but then this manual can hardly claim to be comprehensive if it does not account for the possibility of customisation. Needless to say, my ship is still grounded.

So now I'm stuck in this hollow asteroid, surrounded by Imperial fighters, with a gnarly co-pilot (doesn't help when he's always shedding hairs into the engine compartment) and an equally bilious passenger. The sexual tension is now unbearable, and I may shortly have to ask her to recce the rest of this barren rock while I "resolve matters" with my crew. It's either that or have my groin encased in carbonite, and we know that ain't gonna happen!

Also, the floor keeps rippling in a faintly alarming manner.

I shoulda stayed in that damn cantina and had another drink.

5.0 out of 5 stars Million Dollar Millennium Manual 4 Jan 2012
Format:Hardcover
I purchased the Millennium Falcon Haynes manual as a gift for a Star Wars mad friend of mine and I must say I couldn't have been happier when it arrived.
The book is a great spin on the traditional Haynes manual with amazing detailed colour drawings and technical details albeit about a fictional craft.
Together with some great back story and photographs its facinating even for a Star Wars novice like me.
Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking Book 2 Jan 2012
Format:Hardcover
Bought this for my 11 year old Stars Wars daft son and he is absolutely delighted with same.
As per any Haynes Manual, they are very well written and explained with photos, but the layout, features and photos in this, really are superb and very interesting - even though it is all make believe!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Falcon beauty 3 Mar 2012
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book for my daughter who is a Star Wars nut. We're used to using Haynes manuals for cars or bikes, but this took us to a different dimension. I've never seen Ryder Wyndham's work before but I am led to believe he is well respected in the Star Wars community. The photographs and detailed information lead you to believe that he crawled all over a fully functional Millenium Falcon to get the information. Regardless of how he arrived at it, the end result is brilliant with distinctive sections dealing with engines, armament, crew quarters, etc, segregated just as it would be in an auto manual, however the glossy colour photos in this book leave a normal auto manual in this manual's wake since there are only boring black and white photos in a car manual. Love it, love it, love it!
