Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Length: 1:24 Mins
There have been quite a few books released on Star Wars vehicles already, namely:

Incredible Cross-sections of Star Wars Episode I
Incredible Cross-sections of Star Wars Episode II
Incredible Cross-sections of Star Wars Episode III
Incredible Cross-sections of Star Wars Episode IV, V & VI
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.

What would any good Star Wars product be without a shiny new Special Edition every few years? I haven't considered myself a Star Wars fan in a long time, but I love the Incredible Cross-Sections books. I've spent hundreds of hours poring over them, laying out the floor plans and systems in my head, often just marveling at Richard Chasemore's and Hans Jenssen's attention to detail. I bought "Star Wars: Complete Cross-Sections" for convenience sake, and for the four new cutaways and the making-of material.

"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.

I can't say enough good things about the Star Wars: Incredible Cross Section books. Its a perfect gift for any big sci-fi fan or one of the scientific/engineering mindset. Some of the specific bad things about this edition is that not a whole of new stuff is added. There may be three new cross sections, but there is not a whole lot provided in the way of new information about those vehicles. They changed the format around and put the awesome technical information in the back of the book. Lastly, to its detriment they removed or changed information from previous editions, so its better to buy Star Wars Complete Cross-Sections: The Spacecraft and Vehicles of the Entire Star Wars Saga.

Overall this book tries to bring some sense of reason, common sense and science into the Star Wars universe, but without impeding on the great sci-fi/fantasy setting. Its a great shame other Star Wars works do not follow this example and instead go down the path of "its a space opera" numbers/common sense/science don't matter at all. I hope the grand scale and wonder of the original trilogy is again captured in Episode VII.

As most DK books the illustrations in this one are first rate.
The commentary/analysis that goes along with it about the "history"
(real movie and Star Wars universe) of each machine is a blast.
I have always loved cut away drawings and this book is a treasure trove
of them. And did I mention it's about Star Wars!!!

Excellent book if you are like me and weren't able to ever purchase ALl of the Star Wars crossection books.
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.
