"The book that collectors have clamored for since the Star Wars phenomenon began over 30 years ago has finally arrived, courtesy of authors Gus Lopez and Duncan Jenkins: Gus and Duncan's Comprehensive Guide to Star Wars Collectibles.
Containing over 75,000 items listed over 984 pages with 36,000 full-color pictures, this is the ultimate guide that no Star Wars collector should be without. A decade's worth of research has gone into this 56-chapter tome, representing collectibles from 100 different countries, including lemon cola cans from South Africa and Darth Vader duvet covers from Sweden. It's all here, or at least pretty much every item known to the authors who have been collecting Star Wars for three decades.
