No one interested? I guess not since I never saw any discussion on it?

Re: The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia coming soo

Oh, I'm definately in 'wait mode' for this to come out

I have the original one and this looks to be a top-shelf step-up

What he said.
Depends on the quantity of new material and of course, the price.

Re: The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia coming soo

I have not heard a lot about it. Is it all in one book or is it multiple books? Is it everything, or is it just new information since the last encyclopedia?
If anyone knows where they have a write up about it I would love to learn more about it. I think the encyclopedia could be really good.

Looks like December 9th is the day. I'll try to pick it up with a Borders or Barnes/Noble 40% off coupon, or better yet, I hope Costco will carry it.

I've had a chance to browse, but not yet read, the first volume (of 3). It's laid out similar to the previous edition, has some great new art and is surprisingly up to date with at least the Clone Wars show.

Yes, I've read a few pages myself and I can't wait to sit down with these volumes and soak up the information.

Re: The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia coming soo

I'm really on the fence about this one. It sounds great. It is expensive. I guess my biggest hurdle is putting up the money for something I can basically get for free on Wookiepedia. I know Wookiepedia has it's critics, I have had several issues with them in the past myself, but they do provide up-to-date information and, like I said, it's free. I'm sure any new information that is presented in the encyclodepia will be reflected on Wookiepedia pretty quickly.

Can someone here tell me what I would be getting for my hard earned (and quickly dwindling) cash that would make it worth purchasing?

Re: The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia coming soo

It pretty much depends what you want to have ...

The physical books over what you can see on your monitor (or Printed Pg.) and whatever issues you may have w/ the info found on Wookipedia in comparison to ...

Re: The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia coming soo

Looks like being a mod on rebelscum.com has its perks. Get to preview a much-anticipated release before us commonfolk.

I have this pre-ordered at amazon.com. Very anxious to get it!

Re: The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia coming soo

It is an impressive book set!
I received my contributor copy several days ago. The overall layout is the same as the first one, but I think it's designed nicer - more images, several cool charts, in a nice three volume slip case.
There is an obvious comparison to Wookieepedia but I like having all the info on hand and nicely organized in book form. It's a very comprehensive book and it'll be the "go to" reference book for many Lucasfilm Star Wars projects to come. I think if you're a fan of SW reference books you'll like it a lot.

Re: The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia coming soo

This may seen trivial, but oddly it will pretty much decide for me whether I ask for this set or not.

What does the book refer to the Coruscant Security clones as, 61st Homeworld Security or Shocktrooper Legion?

You can't beat having a book in front of you.

Commander Fox's group are mentioned briefly under Coruscant Guard (a loose term which refers to a few groups). There's an entry for Homeworld Security Command. Nothing under Shocktrooper.
