[LINK]DK's LEGO Star Wars The Visual Dictionary Released Today

The big Star Wars "May the Fourth" Weekend is upon us. It's been a big week for Star Wars already, with sequel film cast announcements and product reveals in time for this weekend. But the first must-have item of the weekend leads the pack, released today for all those eager to start the fun right now. DK Publishing's newly updated and expanded LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary covers all the new sets and minifigures that have been released since the first visual dictionary was released in 2009, and comes with an exclusive Luke Skywalker (Tatooine) minifigure.

This book is very exciting for LEGO Star Wars fans of all ages, whether they have every set ever made, or just a few bricks here and there. It profiles every set with descriptions of each set, set numbers, release dates, and brick counts. It notes which minifigures came with which sets, and keeps track of what sets and minifigures were updated with new versions over the last fifteen years. It makes an excellent resource for those want to keep track of their extensive collections, or just drool over the sets that got away.

But aside from being just a catalog, there are chapters devoted to behind-the-scenes topics like set design and subject selection. There is great entry about LEGO's giant promotional event in 2013 where the world's largest LEGO model, a life-sized X-Wing dominated Times Square in New York City. Super-rare promotional sets and convention exclusive sets are profiled. There's a section on fan-made models and dioramas, and video games and television specials.

The 144 page book in on sale as of today and lists for $21.99. But hunt around for a bargain this weekend. It's discounted at many of your favorite places where books are sold.
