New LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary, April 2019

samtheqsamtheq USAMember Posts: 44
The listing which, until now, has been known as "LEGO Star Wars Encyclopedia" for next year has been updated, revealing it to be an updated SW Visual Dictionary, with cover art.

https://www.amazon.com/LEGO-Star-Wars-Visual-Dictionary/dp/1465478884?crid=3KWRYIU6HWHWJ&keywords=lego+star+wars+encyclopedia&qid=1540474900&sprefix=lego+star+wars+ency%2Caps%2C183&sr=8-6&ref=sr_1_6

The text says that it is updated "through 2014," so let's just assume that was a cut-and-paste job from the last version.

Of course, no clue as to what the minifigure is, yet.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm about at overload with these books.  I must have a whole shelf of them at this point.  If the minifigure is unique, or even good, I will buy it for that reason, but I'm contemplating clearing out some of the older versions.

    The problem with the books is that they are all very similar, but I guess you could say that about any updated reference guides, dictionaries, encyclopedia etc.
    As a rule, I don't buy them until they hit a price that I'd be willing to pay for the figure alone. Then I read the book once and it ends up in a charity shop. On one occasion, I found a Harry Potter one and a Star Wars one in a charity shop, complete with figures, bought them, took the figures out then dropped them off at a different charity shop on the way home!

    Now- as long as the charity shop realises that the minifig is the pricy bit & the book is just padding (they seem to think people want the book more than the minifig....)

    I wish these books would come with a mini-build to go with the figure. How hard would it be to include parts and instructions for a little hill for Obi-Wan to stand on?
