Editorial Reviews

Review

"After what seems like dozens of 'visual dictionary' books about the Star Wars universe, DK Books (and author Simon Beecroft) gets down to the stuff we really care about -- Star Wars Legos. Not only are they excellent gateway drugs to slowly suck your children into the Sarlacc Pit of Star Wars collectibles, but you can bust them up into a million pieces and then put them into something completely different -- try that Transformers! This profusely illustrated volume follows the DK Visual Dictionary format, supplying basic lingo about all the SW characters and vehicles, plus details on the Lego versions..." --Geek Monthly, September 1, 2009

"LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary is a book full of awesome...In short: If you like the LEGO Star Wars sets and minifigs, you will love this book. If you put it down long enough to let your kids read it, I can pretty much guarantee they'll like it, too." --Wired.com - Geek Dad Blog, October 9, 2009

Very nice hardback book with lots of stunning pictures of what else? Star Wars Legos!

We are big fans of Legos in general and this book did not disappoint. It came with a bonus Luke Skywalker mini-figure. As with all DK books, you get great pictures, thorough descriptions, and just a generally enjoyable book to collect or read.

I bought 2 copies of this book, one to read, and one to collect.

The only thing that bothered me a (very tiny) little bit was how the Luke Skywalker mini-fig was packaged. At first glance it looks like a much thicker book, but about half of the thickness is a spacer placed inside the book to make room for the mini-fig, so it lays flush with the front cover. I posted some pictures on the main item page if you want to see what I mean. Nothing that I would knock a star off for though.

Overall, we are VERY happy with this book. Great price for a quality book that will not disappoint young and old!

We ordered this for my Son's school, at the same time as we ordered the hardback version (LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary) for ourselves. They look to be identical except that this one does not include the mini-fig. As a result it also doesn't have the 1/4 inch spacer mat inside the front cover.

As for content, there are a few pages at the front that are a listing of all the lego star wars sets. After that the pages are much like the normal The Visual Dictionary of Star Wars, Episodes IV, V, & VI: The Ultimate Guide to Star Wars Characters and Creatures, except with close up pictures of legos, rather than movie stills.

Format: Hardcover
My 6 year old son and I like the book very much, but it is defineately not as detail oriented as we would have liked. Many of the sets only get 1 or 2 pictures and you do not get to see many of the neat pieces or accessories that come in each of the sets. I was hoping for at least a better description with what minifigures were with each set and the additional accessories. Many sets like the Clone Turbo Tank and the different Clone Walkers and gunships do not have pictures of what is inside of them or the pieces you can take out (like where you can sit all of your figures). Also, there were some misses on the variations of some of the minifigures (the new super battle droid that have a laser rifle arm). We would have also liked an index in the back since many sets are shown 1-3 times throughout the book. The Luke minifig is neat and the book does show some great stuff we hadn't seen in a while but it just seems they didn't try hard on this book. Another neat thing was one image of a set idea that was never made but developed for the Yavin base. Would have been great with some more examples of that. Also, the distant picture of all the star wars minifigs was not good enough for me. The inside of the book covers could have been a great place to reprint the star wars poster with all the minifigs that Lego put out last year as part of the 10 year anniversary. And couldn't we have gotten a sneak peek at the next batch Lego? C'mon. Overall a nice book, but some what disappointing with the lack of detailed photos and info for each set.

This is a beautiful book!
Title: The Visual Dictionary....of all the Lego Star Wars items out on the market!

This book is organized very well.
The book has 4 chapters: 1.Movie Saga, 2. The Clone Wars, 3. Specialists Sets, 4.Beyond the Brick (96 pgs total)

It has pictures of all of the Star Wars Legos that have come out so far. There is a time-line that tells when each of the items came out, year by year and also episode by episode The pictures and descriptions are clear and colorful. Each of the Lego sets has a picture, the Lego #, number of pieces and the film episode. What more can you ask for?

The book is hardbound and the cover has about an inch thick insert where the mini-figure is stored. This makes the book appear thicker than it actually is. I wasn't expecting that but the book is still nice and thick and full of great information for any Star Wars lover.

A Great buy for under 15 bucks!
This is a keeper for sure for my 7 yr old son who will be thrilled on his Birthday!

As a Lego Star Wars fan, I had great expectations of this book - so much so that after word that an exclusive minifig was to be included, I immediately preordered it. Now that it is in my eager hands, I have to review what I had expected of the book. I agree with some reviewers here that it is a just a Lego Star Wars catalogue, albeit a very good one. As someone who have just picked up this rather expensive hobby long after my last Lego set, it is a great chronicle of all sets past, present and all in between. With all the magnificent photography in the tradition of DK books, it is one fantastic 'catalogue'. For that it has served it's purpose.

However, some of the content in my opinion, is repeat info for fans of the series. This is unnecessary for a book like this. I would rather have this book contain more information from a Lego point of view, like the great tibits of facts pertaining to some sets on some pages, rather than explaining how Darth Vader came to be. A cross between the recently published Lego DK book and the StarWars series would have been preferable for me, like the last 2 chapters on UCS sets and set development. I was done going through the book in less than an hour

But still I'm giving it 3 stars for the excellent images, the timeline of all the sets, and of course, the exclusive Luke minifig.
