Note: The Prop Den review is based on one person's opinion which can vary. The review is independent as a fan and avid collector.



Review:

Visually this book is appealing as is anything Sansweet normally does. This is another book that covers various collectibles and as this is a very competitive market it makes itself known and just manages to stand out amongst several similar types of publications.

Verdict:

Much the same as we’ve seen before, perhaps it just manages to stay out in front as a revised edition from all the previous formats of SW collectible books. Well illustrated and worth having in a book collection. You can read it in one long sitting but you may refer back to it time and time again.

Rating: 4 out of 5- Recommended


Brief Description:

Price Approx £15
Available, Amazon, eBay, play.com


The ultimate collection of "Star Wars" collectibles. Filled with facts, anecdotes and lore about the rarest and most desirable objects in the "Star Wars" universe and written by the man with the collection everyone wants to see. "Star Wars: 1,000 Collectibles" presents a different way of looking at the Star Wars experience, taking the reader on a journey through cool and kitsch, from toys to costumes to life-size statues made of LEGO bricks to otherwise - ordinary consumer goods such as sweets, clothing, toothpaste - and much, much more. A record and appreciation of 1,000 collectible "Star Wars" objects from the largest private collection in the known universe, this stunning collection of photos and colorful anecdotes mixes fun with nostalgia, delighting the casual fan and providing the serious collector with indispensable reference material. Here for the first time is a comprehensive field guide to the constantly expanding, all-encompassing, often surreal lifestyle of collecting "Star Wars".
