Anyway, onto the product.
It comes in a thick cardboard box, without any excess packing (bubblewrap e.t.c), which is about 30 cm long:
It comes with an invoice, and the catalogue is wrapped in cellophane. Although the pages have yellow edges, the page backgrounds are actually white. Its dimensions are 21cm x 15cm x 3cm (in case you wanted to know ). Overall it has exactly 800 pages.
N.B. It is a catalogue - think Yellow Pages.
The back - all the writing throughout the book is in both English and German. There are a few errors in the English (not sure about the German) - for example, "Toys'R'Us exklusive Set", which is meant to be English
It has a few pages of introduction about Lego (I've only photographed English). Sorry for poor photo badly corrected - it's too fat to fit in my scanner
And a brief history of the Lego logo (only half shown here)
Every entry follows a set layout. I think the "rarity bar" is calculated by how rare it was at the time - the Skull's Eye Schooner 6286 (very rare now) is only ranked at 3 yellow bricks...
The entries are arranged in years, and then by set number. The first entry - and the last...(no Agents though)
Annoyingly, there are a fair amount of "missing images", although these are generally 3-piece Bionicle give-aways, so it shouldn't really concern anyone.
A "random" page -
At the back, there is an extensive index of keyrings/keychains...
...To please Gylman...(rubbed beak on parrot though?)
And an extensive index of service packs ...and an index of every set number, year, and page reference
It's quite expensive for what you get, but it's worth it, even if there are boring pictures of brick buckets and Bionicles and Spongebob But to have an easy reference of every set is well worth the cost.
They only ship to Europe...
