This update is a brilliant addition to the original tome. For any collector of Lego Minifigures you simply cannot be without this series of books. Great photos really help track down the figure you have (or may be looking for) and ensure you have all the right bits to make a complete minifig, perfect for ensuring your collection is accurate. The additions of back photo and head shot alongside the main photos really helps to.

It's a brilliant addition within these catalog updates to also show the new and used prices for minifigs. Helps ensure buyers and sellers are getting a fair price, i really wish this idea had been thought of in the original:-)

One slight drawback is that with the headshot being moved along side the actual figure within the catalog, the seperate quick reference collection of heads which was in the original catalog at the rear of the book has now been removed. I used to find this incredibly useful as searching for the parts of a minifig from a large collection of bits is easiest done starting with the head. Often heads are unique to a given minifigure, so if you haven't got that it's pretty pointless building up the parts using the other elements like the legs, arms and torso. Having that reference in one place made it really easy to look up the minifig within the catalog as all the minifigures it may have appeared on were clearly listed under each unique head.

This change doesn't affect the usability of the catalogs but it would be great to have that back in again in any future updates:-)

I picked this up and I love the book as a reference. I wish it has prices like this site does.

However, overall, the book has been a great find and I love it.

bought it as a complement to the iPhone app, for the kids to look in, and as "nice to have"
It is all it claims to be, no more no less.
