Ordered mine from Amazon last week, and I got it this afternoon. After opening the nesting doll's worth of boxes it's encapsulated in, I tried to lift it out unassisted with my nerdy girly arms, but my mom came down to the basement to help me put it on the D&D table (Had to move some stuff CAREFULLY) for review. The only white gloves I could find were my mom's elbow length evening gloves. She's got man hands so I can get them on. I must say, the book is "most impressive". I tried to show it to my mom, but she didn't want wear the portable sneeze guard I made for reviewing my books, I'll have to take pictures and show her those....

This is a joke right - :sick

Yes, after the point I opened the nesting dolls worth of boxes. I did notice the thing was almost 30lbs, and I did show it to my mom. I haven't had time to pour over it like I should, but I'm sure to find some great stuff inside once I have the time.

So here's the question--how useful is it for model making? I know it's probably a great read, but is it actually useful?

For me, yes. I'm building an Echo Base for a client sooner or later, and the book will provide SO MUCH useful information.... also plan to check my T-16 data against the full-scale set.

I wish there was Landspeeder stuff in there. Only disappointment.

Wow... that book looks incredible! Add me to the ones hoping for a cheaper version sometime. I doubt I'd ever be able to justify the cost to my wife :)

Barnes and Noble are doing a 50% off coupon on their Facebook page, lasts through the 6th which would bring this down to like $250

Thanks for that tip! I followed what you just said and paid just that for the book. It finally made sense for me to buy it at that price. :thumbsup

There's a full list of all the blueprints on this page (see the link at the bottom of the page):

The Blueprints - Star Wars: The Blueprints

Can someone with the book check pages 312-313 for me? It says it's Coruscant Speeder II

Can someone tell me if it's the yellow hotrod speeder Anakin drives in the speeder chase? I'm guessing it's either that, or Zam Wessel's speeder, or just a random Coruscant traffic thing
