Full-color, exploded technical illustrations get you under the hood of every noteworthy ship in the Star Wars trilogy, from a grand tour of a Jawa Sandcrawler to a sprawling, four-page foldout of (what else but?) the Death Star. Detailed labels and realistic, miniature depictions of crew and characters roaming around each ship are so engaging that you may find yourself imagining you're on the Millennium Falcon giving Chewie a hand with the power couplings. --Paul Hughes

While this book isn't 100% comprehensive (not all the Star Wars trilogy vehicles are covered) it covers all the important ones like the X-Wing, TIE Fighter (three versions), the Millenium Falcon and much more. You not only get cut away views of these vehicles, but also some interesting information on the history of the ship as well as how they work. The detail that goes into these ships is amazing. And it's not just an artist putting "busy stuff" in the hulls to look technical. A lot of care was put into this one. I would even say this book gives you better information on the ships covered than the very comprehensive Star Wars Guide to Essential Vehicles.
Only about a dozen ships are featured in this book. While that might sound small the details you get make it definitely worth it. So don't fret over the lack of quantity because it makes up for it in quality.
The book itself is definitely a coffee table type book. These Incredible Cross Sections books are the largest in my collection. It's a huge hardbound book with a dust jacket. The dust jacket and cover look identical so you don't lose too much taking out the jacket. While the book is large the number of pages is small so the book ends up really thin, but with only a small amount of vehicles covered I can understand the small number of pages.Read more ›
Oh, yes. But not like this.
X-RAY VISION The review copy I received revealed truly "incredible," intricate drawings like in no other Star Wars book to date. Illustrators Jennsen and Chasemore (who do this type of work for jet aircraft, military vehicles and other real world machinary) put more detail into these drawings than a scanner can adequately show you.
What they've done is rip away parts of the exterior and interior of various vehicles and spacecraft to show you, from a 3/4 view, the hallways, hangers, machinary and other inner systems and components both familiar and newly-created. For example, you'll get to see the hallway from the Millennium Falcon cockpit lead to the interior where Chewbacca threatened arm-rippage and Ben patiently opened a new world for farmboy Luke Skywalker - and you can see those characters in position!
Author David West Reynolds (who also wrote Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary) has obviously spent long hours researching his topic. In these drawings, you'll find the hallway on the Tantive IV where Vader choked Captain Antilles, as well as the passageway where Princess Leia sent Artoo Detoo on his mission to find Obi-Wan Kenobi.Read more ›
