I promise, this will be the last LEGO Star Wars post in a while, but consider it the most important. Now that the contest is over (scroll down for winners), it’s time to round up my thoughts for an official review of LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary from DK Publishing.
I grew up with the classic DK Star Wars books like the Incredible Cross-sections and the Visual Dictionaries, and this one definitely is just as cool. Actually, it may be the coolest, since it combines Star Wars and LEGO into one awesome book.
The book is hardback with an extra-thick front cover. That’s because the bottom right corner holds an exclusive A New Hope ceremonial Luke minifig! At first glance the book seems short at 96 pages, but once you read through it all (and realize it’s for ages 7+), the book seems the perfect length.
One of the coolest features of the book is right up front; the timeline. It lists every LEGO Star Wars set from the last ten years, which is a very cool resource for collectors. From there it takes you through each film’s sets and details every minifigure, all in the classic DK style.
