Love those sourcebooks. Some great writing in them. Always try to pick them up when I find them in the wild!
I have the first 5 Galaxy Guides, the 1st edition sourcebook (hardcover) and the RPG book from the early 90s when I was 16 and playing the game. Always regretted not getting more.
In the wild I didn't encounter these for almost 20 years... until last summer when a box popped up at a convention, but they were pricey.
Last saturday I found these.... for € 5 each (that's $ 6). When I heard they were this cheap I bought the lot minus the ones I already had.
Bargain of the year? The Rebel book has a nick on the spine but all others were in pristine condition. It would surprise me if they have ever been read.

TWD,

If there were pictures in your last 2 posts before this one, they aren't showing up. Curious to see what they were.
That's weird!

Star Wars: Last Shot.

It's got a double sided dust jacket, which is pretty cool. One side is Han Solo, the other is Lando Calrissian.

Hardcover Haul.
Good deal of what? I picked this up on friday: 10 first edition hardcovers; 8 in Mint state, 2 Near Mint. I paid € 75 (€ 7,50 per book). I already had the Thrawn trilogy as first ed. paperback (bought when they were released) but not as a fancy HC!
I also bought a mint Lando Calrissian Adventures book (from 1994) for € 4 a couple of days ago.
Excellent pickups and good reading right there!

oh yeah. I also bought 3 hardcover collections of two old Star Wars book series and Darth Maul Shadow Hunter from a rummage sale earlier today too. They were a dollar each and the hardcovers are in great shape too

the Bounty Hunter Wars Trilogy hardcover
Black Fleet Crisis Trilogy hardcover
Darth Maul Shadow Hunter hardcover.

ive read the Bounty Hunter Wars books in paperback years ago and they were pretty good I thought.

I never had the chance to read the old Black Fleet Crisis Trilogy.

Darth Maul Shadow Hunter Ill read after Im done reading my paperback copy of Darth Plageous

Finally completed my collection of new canon all in hardback. I managed to avoid the crazy ebay prices for hardback books and picked this up on Facebook for £2 :D

Lords of the Sith is really good for a post Revenge of the Sith novel to read through but I still prefer the previous Dark Lord Rise of Darth Vader novel and the Force Unleashed novels and the Coruscant Nights books including book 4 which is Last Jedi. Yes a previous Last Jedi novel which is part of the Coruscant NIghts books.

I went to the Walmart store yesterday and bought the still brand new hardcover Volume 1 of Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive. 27 bucks not too bad for a nice looking hardcover.

Im also surprised a Volume 3 is coming soon in November I think? Volume 3 is supposed to have old artwork etc for Final Fantasy X, XI, XII and XIII

The Force Awakens and Last Jedi Visual hardcover books are they any good to just casually look through or are they a waste of money?
