Read, You Must: LEGO Star Wars Character Encyclopedia

It seems like it wasn't that long ago that we reviewed the "Updated and Expanded" 2015 edition of DK's LEGO Star Wars Character Encyclopedia! However the incredible amount of Star Wars movies and TV that has come out in the last 5 years, it makes sense that there's a need for a "New Edition" for 2020.

The LEGO Star Wars Character Encyclopedia provides a one-sheet "file" on each character. Some major characters like Luke Skywalker have many sheets for each film appearance. Others, like Ewoks, all share one spread.

There are details about the character's place in the story as well as the LEGO minifig itself. Represented here for the first time are characters from The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, Rogue One, Solo and most recently The Rise of Skywalker.

That's a lot of new characters, or new versions of familiar characters, so to make room there are many characters not represented in this 224 page edition. Most notably absent are any characters that fall into the "Legends" category (outside the official timeline) which was a whole section in the 2015 version. Also gone are the behind-the-scenes pages.

What is here is multiple colourful images and interesting info on over 200 Star Wars minifigs, including some rare and exclusive releases.

Like many other DK LEGO Star Wars books, this comes with an exclusive minifig! With this book you get an exclusive Darth Maul minifigure, based on his appearance in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

For LEGO Star Wars fans and collectors, this update is full of updates and info you'll want to have!
(Publisher's Recommendation: Ages 9 - 12)
