Review: (This was written by Derek) 

Star Wars Complete Vehicles is an in depth look at over 50 different spaceships and craft from all over the Star Wars universe. With a close partnership from the Lucasfilm art department, this book contains hundreds of accurately detailed colour illustrations.

The book breaks groups into movie titles and includes all 6 current episodes. The artwork is highly detailed in its appearance and offers a detailed labeling of parts. Each vehicle is tied into the corresponding movie with a few paragraphs and some action captures as well. It is not all X-wings, Star destroyers and tie fighters however. There is plenty on some of the more obscure as well. The Hyperdrive booster, being one of these, contains a listing of the proper docking procedure and the buss droid explains the attacking method. The book also contains a quick reference guide and glossary.

If you are interested in the Star Wars galaxy this is a book for you. I give it 4 out of 5 stars
