Take a look.
The Sith have been getting a lot of love of late, what with the introduction of Darth Malgus in Star Wars: The Old Republic as well as the recent novel about Darth Plagueis, and this has continued with the release of The Phantom Menace on 10th February, and on the same day, Book of Sith, which as the title suggests, is a book, of Sith...
The book itself comes enclosed in a holocron that also contains a Sith Crystal and Talisman concealed within the tray that also holds the book. Pressing a button on the top of the holocron opens it, with a section of the front lifting-up to allow the tray inside to slide out and reveal the book, all of which is accompanied by a rather piercing wall of noise (sounding at times like force lightning, at others a lightsaber closing down) and flashing red lights. I may be easily entertained, but personally I think it's a pretty awesome feature.
The books is broken down into six texts, which, as Darth Sidious details in the preface, were recovered during his gathering of ancient Sith artifacts, and comprises Sorzus Syn's chronicle of the rise of the Sith Empire, a war journal by Darth Malgus, The Rule of Two by Darth Bane, Wild Power by Mother Talzin, a scientific journal by Darth Plagueis, and Absolute Power by Darth Sidious. A note from Luke Skywalker(!), explains that each of these sections has its own page design and trim, to distinguish the six individual texts.
In the preface of the book, Darth Sidious explains how he has seen the Grand Plan of the Sith come to fruition, as well as his purpose in compiling the texts included in the book, with one, somewhat ironically, being recovered from the Jedi Temple.Read more ›
Cons: I'm putting the Sith tapestry in a ziplock bag, museum-style, such an ancient thing must be preserved. :)
I've a Sith Relic sitting on my coffee table. It gets attention! I'm not going to rush the mechanism, I read people's reviews of it after it got forced. Not going to happen. However I did out of curiosity peek at the mechanism, the gadget-fixer in me can put it all back together in the unlikely event of ... I dunno, someone's kid knocking it off the table.
I ordered both this and the Jedi Path Vault edition at the same time.
The Sith arrived a week in advance of the Jedi. I find this humorous and ironic. :)
Read like half the book already, put the book back into the box and did not want to close. It made this like grinding sound and door did not want to shut. I pressed button again and had to kinda help force it down, hasn't done that since, but it shouldn't do that at all. I give the book a 5/5. I give the box a 3/5. just could have done a lot better job on door mechanism and such. The book of Jedi had a way better case, this is a fail. sorry to say that but its true, not worth 60 bucks at all. maybe 30 at that. The book of sith is way better then path of jedi though, hope this helps, thanks for your time, may the force be with you
