This book was released to coincide with the 15th Anniversary of the Lego Star Wars theme. The first edition was published in 2009 (or on the 10th anniversary of the theme), and includes Lego Star Wars sets through 2010. A lot of new sets have been released since then, so this edition provides a much need update. The book includes lots of great things from the original (like the timeline), plus some wonderful new things (like the minifigure gallery) and updates. Here is a list of the key things I liked best about this new edition of the book.
(1) It includes just about everything from the first edition (so no need to go back and buy that book if you don't already own it unless you want that minifigure). Plus, it includes info on all of the sets released since then, INCLUDING everything slated for release in 2014 even if it was not out when the book was released (like the Sandcrawler 75059, Mos Eisley Cantina 75052, AT-AT 75054, and more).
(2) My favorite part is that it still includes the very helpful and chronological 8 page list of all Lego Star Wars sets ever released (with a picture of each box and broken down by episode/series/expanded universe).
(3) Another great part (and an awesome NEW addition to the book) is the 14 page minifigure gallery. It's a great way to see variations of each figure side by side, and also very fun to look through in general.Read more ›
Plus there is the retro Luke Skywalker minifig that is exclusive to this release, which if past, out of print book release minifig prices continue to climb as they have, this book is a fantastic bargain, and for the serious collector you may want to purchase multiple copies for "safe keeping".
The original book was released on the 10th anniversary of the Lego Star Wars theme, this one on the 15th anniversary and given how great add-on this book will be in each fan collection we can only guess what awaits us after 5 years.
But back to this book - it is a very good full-colored work that can certainly be recommended to all the fans of Lego Star Wars who still have not bought older edition, but also to those who have the older edition because this is not an example of a book that just wants to draw extra money from fans, being even better than the original.
Book includes all the updates that happened in period of past 5 years such as new sets or some cool updates such as gallery of mini figures which presents on 14 pages all the figures released – a great way to compare figures, realize variations and providing nice help for future purchases. And not to forget, you’ll get Luke Skywalker figure that looks kid of retro, which is great news for collectors.
Of course, you still can find inside all included in 2009 edition such as timeline, list of all released sets together with extensive breakdown of each set and accompanying picture and wealth of useful facts and trivia about the Lego Star Wars Universe.
Also speaking about nice new things, one that was strangely missing from the original was index, which is now included offering an easy way to find quickly what you need.
Overall, with ‘LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary’ updated edition you just cannot miss – a great new release that manages to raise the bar of quality even further by making us to impatiently await the next 5 years to pass.
