FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 7

I really wanted this set. This set would go so well with my Star wars visual dictionary. I really wanted this set so I could have both celebration Han Solo and Luke Skywalker. I think that this book is really fun to look through. There are 206 pages to look through many different types of Lego Star Wars Characters.

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 10

There is one minifigure for this book: the celebration Han Solo. This minifigure only comes in this book. That is rare and unqiue.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 8

There is a great play experience. You can look through the book for days readind about the different characters with many details about them.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 7

The book costs $18.99 USD. i would say that is a good price, considering the book has a rare minifigure. Also, the book has a lot of pages for the price you are paying.

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 6

The book comes from the Star Wars theme. Anything from Star Wars sells well most of the time in the primary market. This means that most of the stuff should sell in the secondary market.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 10

There is one thing exclusive about this set. In the bottom right hand corner it says exclusive minifigure Han Solo. That is the only exclusive thing about this book.

PACKAGING | Score: 5

There is no special marking or unique packaging on this set.

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 5

I do not see much for potential growth for this book. Most books do not have much of a value to me, so my opinion is that these books are more geared to kids and for them to enjoy them.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 5

Not display attributes. The book is meant to be read.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 6

Overall, I think that this book is a great book to get for fun and to look through.
