"...perfect for the Popular Mechanics nerd in your household..." -- Atlanta Journal-Constitution, May 2007

Great book though with loads of nerd facts and minutia. Loved the double page love they gave to the B-Wing and the open gatefolds they gave some of the larger vessels. I highly recommend to any Star Wars fan. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star review was for its uneven detailing from vehicle to vehicle.
A must for any die-hard Star Wars or mainstream Sci-Fi fan to collect and marvel at!
The artists and art of these books is just amazing and a really high level of technical illustrative/industrial artistry.
For the technical and technique style artist, these books are "Blow Away!"
By the way, the Cross-Sections books were originally sold separately for Episodes I-III and IV-VI respectively. Buying the Complete Cross-Sections compendium here is a better buy.
This book adds cross-section entries for the TIE Bomber, TIE Advanced (something only touched on in the original trilogy cross-section), A-Wing Fighter, B-Wing Fighter, and the Imperial Shuttle. That's roughly half the vehicles you would find on a regular cross-section book added to this volume. On top of that you get a forward by both artists/writers talking about the fun they had making the books.
So what does that mean? Well if you have never gotten a Star Wars Incredible Cross-Sections book this is the one to get. You get ALL of the vehicles fromt he previous books plus another 1/2 book's worth of exclusive material. If you don't quite have all of the previous books then I say get this one at the price of a regular book (shouldn't be hard at all). If you don't have the original trilogy book that makes the purchase that much more sweet as that's where the new material is.
If you have the complete collection then you have to make a choice. Do you buy the book, thus get the extra ships and more shelf space? Do you complain to Lucas for the double dipping? Personally I am one of those people with the complete set and figured I didn't need the new book, however I really, really love the B-Wing and relished the idea of having a view of its innards so I got it. I'm pretty pleased with the purchase, and besides I was able to sell my old books to recoup some of what I spent.
