LEGO Star Wars Character Encyclopedia, Ceremonial Han Revealed

Postby Staff » Wed Jul 06, 2011 1:40 pm





To celebrate FBTB's return to the Amazon Affiliate program, I've updated the right sidebar link from the Star Wars Blu-Ray page to the LEGO Star Wars Character Encyclopedia book being published by DK Publishing because the movies are old, and everyone's already seen it and also because the book is new and pretty darn cool. And it has nothing to do with the fact that I consulted on the book. The current price as I write this is $11.16 direct from Amazon. With their pre-order price guarantee, if Amazon's price changes, you'll pay the lowest price no matter when you place your pre-order. The release date for the book is October 3, 2011, just in time for the holidays.

Just like the LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary book before it, it comes with an exclusive new figure. The figure was supposed to be a secret... but browsing Amazon.co.uk's page for the book, the figure has been revealed to be Ceremonial Han Solo from the final scene in A New Hope!

That price is really impressive! I know the first book was really high quality, and if this is anywhere close (I'm sure you made sure of that! ;) ), it is a steal! :D

This will make a nice addition to my collection...most impressive. But, why didn't they wait another two weeks and reveal it at Comic-Con??!??!? That was a nice surprise when they revealed Luke in the first book. Oh well, I can't complain about the price though. I sure hope they seal the book up a bit better to thwart pilfering.

They had the book on display at Comic Con at the DK Publishing booth. It was in a clear box case, but as I got closer one of the reps took it out and allowed me to thumb through it. It looks totally awesome!!! It covers a ton of figures, and it also provides detail if there are alternate versions of that minifigure. I don't think you guys will be disappointed. It's definitely smaller in length and width vs. the visual dictionary, but it seems to fit since the minifigures themselves are much smaller than sets.

StarWars.com just posted a preview of the book featuring several page layouts and a nice closeup of the exclusive Han Solo minifig. Overall, it looks like a great complement to the Visual Dictionary.

Not to shoot that idea down too fast but there's nothing special about Chewie at the final celebration. Only Luke and Han get medals. Of course maybe Chewie got a pedicure and fur wash & waxing beforehand??

Actually Chewie got the last line in the movie, a roar. Lucas gave him that tribute since he did not recieve a medal.

Ah, good call. Then perhaps the next book will have the first ever minifig with a sound chip inside?? I can just see it now, push down on Chewie's head and out comes his tell tale roar.....hmmm, just imagine. :)

Not going to lie, I'd buy it just for the minifigure alone haha. Welcome back to the Amazon affiliate program. I've never had the opportunity to browse through this book, but I've read the original!
