Great dictionary - comprehensive and well illustrated
on 29 September 2009
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.......
