Star Wars Complete Cross-Sections: The Spacecraft and Vehicles of the Entire Star Wars Saga
Now, we have another new book, with most of the content rehashed though.
Compared to the previous compilation the Star Wars Complete Cross-sections which is 152 pages, also from DK, this hardcover is 208 pages. The extra pages come in the form of related film stills and commentary. Some film stills and additional commentary are also added to the cross-section pages.
The expanded edition comes with 4 new cross sections: Luke Skywalker's Landspeeder, the Medical Frigate, Home One and the Scout Speeder Bike.
The book itself is smaller in size to the first few books. It's not much an issue because the details can still be seen but you lose the effect of viewing those amazing artworks at even larger sizes.Read more ›
The size of all of artwork in this book is a little smaller than the size in the original DK books, but is still large enough to still marvel at all of the details in these intricately drawn, technical illustrations.
It's a plus to have all of these crossection illustrations under one complied reference style book.
Highly recommend even if you have the larger version illustration books.
I have, recently, purchased the older 2007 version of this book to do a comparison.
I decided to update my previous review of this recent version of this book to both dispel the idea of this 2013 version of this book being a "money grab" by DK and just a, so called, smaller formatted, rehashed version of the previous 2007 larger formatted version.
First, and most important to note is that while the overall page size has changed only in height, the width of the 2013 version of this book is near identical to the 2007 version of the Star Wars Vehicle Cross-sections reference book.
I did a book over book comparison of almost every page and layout of each page.
The actual size/scale of the actual cross-section artworks have not been reduced so significantly from the 2007 version to be jarringly noticeable. They reworked some of the overall page formhat and item callouts to accomdate the shorter height of the book. The difference in scale is NOT enough to take away from seeing all of fine details of these drawings.
In some instances, some of the vehicle cross-sections have gotten a larger scale.Read more ›
"Complete Vehicles" incorporates all of the material from CCS and adds four new two-page cutaways - Luke's Landspeeder, the Medical Frigate, Home One, and the Imperial Speeder Bike. Along with the four new illustrations, each cut-away is accompanied by a number of screenshots from the movies. Some of the more iconic vehicles also receive an additional two-page spread with additional photographs and a couple paragraphs of information.
The new format is obviously more kid-friendly than the original ICS books (which were already written for 9-12 crowd) but the smaller format hurts the impact of many of the cut-aways. The pages are two inches shorter than they were in CCS, and many of the cut-aways have been shrunk to fit the busier format. Oddly enough, "side" cut-aways that were smaller in the original books, like the Tantive IV escape pod and the AT-RT, are bigger this time around and receive their own page.
If you already own "Complete Cross-Sections" you don't really need to buy "Complete Vehicles," unless you're a die-hard fan who HAS to have the four new cross-sections. The frequently awe-inspiring level of detail in the cut-aways, and the charmingly simple format which allowed the reader to focus on the illustrations, seem kind of lost in this shinier and more compact triple-dip.
Oh well. At least we still have the originals.
