    Just when you thought it was safe to go to the book store. Now mind you, this is the delux limited edition, there is a cheaper one you can get at Amazon, but the delux is the same price. I can only imagine what's in there... I bet the Studio Scale guys would like one of these :eek

    Overstock has it for $250:

    Not quite the crazy low $160 I got the costume book for, but a better price than Amazon.
    I wonder what the extras really are. The publisher site isn't very specific.
    The DVD in the costume book was just web docs we've seen contained on the extras DVD's that came with the movies.

    Why do the Star Wars books have to have crazy prices?

    Still I will probably break down and get it :unsure

    Chris, not entirely.

    THe webdocs must have been a bit shorter. I know b/c I saw details of some of the Naboo costumes that I hadn´t seen anywhere else before. I haven´t compared the total running time between the webdocs and the DaG dvd, though.

    That's a lot of money for a book...but *, the content is so tempting.

    I'd be tempted to pay the bucks just to get the dvd.

    Only difference between the two are the extras with the special one. I'm looking forward to see the pics of the extras once they're released

    Overstock.com has it for $29.93. Not much difference but shipping is usually $1 or free.

    I've been waiting for Lorne Peterson to put a book out. I heard he has a huge photo archive. This should be a good book.

    This is what you get with the expensive one:

    Now unless the Falcon model is the Fine Molds model, that's too expensive.

    Doesn't look quite as good as Dressing a Galaxy. Pop-ups are the added feature of the $200 version? I gotta see this because it doesn't sound too impressive in print.

    If it's even half as good as Dressing a Galaxy for reference photos, I'll be going for the regular version. Sounds like a sweet idea to me, 'specially if they've re-photographed stuff from the archives.

    I gotta see one in person to make the final choice to buy it.

    GREAT idea though. Im sure it is a true asset to the skilled scratch builder or model builder. I wish I could buy one for my firned slave1pilot. he is a model MASTER.
