This is the Ultimate Price Guide when it comes to Star Wars Collectibles. It has everything you could possibly think of Star Wars related. It has many pictures, black and white and color, and prices for mint on card to loose items. It has black and white photos of all of the figures and their weapons, movie posters, books, etc.
This is another must have for any Star Wars collector. Ever wonder how much it cost you to strap a firecracker to a Yak Face action figure? Here's the place to look. Not only is this an excellent price guide, it is a great pictorial catalogue of Star Wars merchandise. The photos of the movie posters and the pictures of the action figures are excellent! It's also a good place to find out if you got a good deal at the used book store for that rare SW book. I recommend getting this if you collect, as my wife calls it, "Star Wars Junk".
Almost by the time the book hits the shelves, its already out of date as far as the price guide goes. New Star Wars merchandise comes out almost every week. Unfortunately, they can't easily do a monthly price guide of this quality. Also, I'd like to see more color photos. Finally, when this book first came out, it was EXTREMELY hard to find. They greatly underestimated the demand for this book.
As I mentioned before, finding out how much it cost you to destroy your favorite SW toys! If you saw Toy Story, the little toys should have said, "Don't blow me up! Some day I'll be worth enough to bail you out of jail!" if they wanted to save themselves! OY!
