Lili Ledy for Beginners Book
As some of you may be aware a new Lili Ledy guide book has been released, the book is titled... Lili Ledy for Beginners - Research conducted by Dack. Currently the book is only available in spanish however the authors facebook page does mention that an English version is been worked on and should be ready within 6 months.
The book is currently available from the authors facebook page for $25 each plus shipping. Note that the book weighs approx. 500 grams so shipping to your part of the world may be expensive.
Not as professionally produced as previously published guide books like Stephane Faucourt's "Meccano to Tri-logo" or John Kellerman's "Star Wars Vintage Action Figures: A Guide for Collectors ", however I believe this book has been self published by the author.
The title of the book gives away what to expect from the content "Lili Ledy for Beginners". Whilst it is ideal for fledgling Lili Ledy collectors the more seasoned collector will feel a little let down by the content.
Sample - Luke Skywalker Jedi Knight Pages 66-67
Sample - Luke Skywalker Jedi Knight Pages 66-67 (English Translation by Walkie)
I've taken the liberty to translate one entry to allow english speaking collectors to assess the information contained within the pages of this latest guide book. The translation was done using google translate therefore my attempt does contain several grammar errors. Note this in no way reflexes the final english edition of the book which is due to be published.
Whilst the book is a good starting block and covers several major variants like the Burgundy Cape Bib, the lack of basic variant information on others figures is disappointing. For example simple things like material and colour variants might be mentioned but are not backed up with photographic evidence.
I hope that future editions will build on the foundations of the first book and additional information will be added.
Noticeable missing entries are Max Rebo and Jabba the Hutt, which I feel should be considered as action figures.
Anyway please judge the book for yourself using the translated pages above and make up your own mind.
I will continue to use and help to contribute towards what I consider the No.1 Lili Ledy resource on the internet, link below...
