Since the homepage has been launched, I think this deserves a topic of it's own:

So do you get the Luke minifig with the book?

Yes I think you do, for me the fig is not too special though. I might get the book purely to have a read and find out a bit more but not for the fig.

Yes, but I've read that there is a regular version of the book and a library version of the book. The library version will not include the minifig. So make sure you don't order one that says library edition (assuming you want the fig).

Thanks for the heads up Drock. I really want the figure to come with it. Where is it specified?

Looking at amazon.com,

Regular vs. Library

I have no idea why the Library would be more expensive though.

From what I've seen Library versions usually have a more reinforced binding. And, if this book, like the other DK books, are slipjacketed, then this will be usually have an additional clear book cover to prevent slippage and tearing.

Pre-order available on Amazon.co.uk. I've ordered mine!

Apologies if link has been posted already.

Wayyyy late, sorry. EDIT: Oh UK, never mind. Sorry. :tongue:

My main incentive for this book is definitely that minifig! Of course, I'll still read the book.

Well I got a copy of the book today, and all I can say is its awesome! Well worth getting for any Lego or Star Wars fan.

I haven't had much time with it yet but will do a review when it gets closer to the release date.

I used the Force and beamed myself to October! :yoda:

No the book has not been released yet in Germany, but will be available on the 24th of September!

I will post more info when I'm finished with the review.

By the way for people who still don't know what the included minifigure represents

All, I'm interviewing LEGO, DK and LFL for BrickJournal and wondered if anyone has anything they'd like to ask them.

Please PM/email or post in this thread if you do :)

Thanks

I would like to ask lego to re-post 06 sets at S@H! Please.

*huh*

What the heck does that have to do with what LEGOscum is asking?

I have a few questions you could ask them, Legoscum.

1. Do you intend to extend the Star Wars license beyond 2011?

2. Do you intend to introduce sets based on vehicles, locations, events and characters from the future Star Wars live-action TV serie?

3. How do you foresee the evolution of the Star Wars license after the end of the clone wars TV serie?

4. Do you intend to submit, in the future, more "fans choice" sets ideas to the Lego community, like the 7754 Home One Mon Calamari Star Cruiser?

5. Many fans are complaining about the use of stickers in the sets, which has considerably increased in the last years and many of them claim to be ready to

pay a little more for sets with only printed parts. Is the decision of introducing/removing stickers in the sets relevant of each team working on a specific theme or a higher autority?

Is that the finalized figure? The face is different. I honestly don't like it. The mouth is too close to the eyes. I hope he will not be like the magnet figs. Thanks for the links Drock.I also hope the book isn't too off like the poster.

Does the luke from the dictionary have a new face? His eyebrows seem very dark compared to my luke from the x wing. I dont like luke's hair piece to be that one. Sure it gives more diversity than the original male hair but its too long for him but the original male hair seems to be too short :sceptic:
