I've always loved the Star Wars Japanese covers, but could never find any for sale. That always annoyed me! But my sister finally found one today on eBay. Here's a Japanese version of Tatooine Ghost. I may buy it, may not. What I'm really interested in are the NJO books, but hopefully will find those one day. Smile

Tatooine Ghost - Japanese

Also found some other languages, too:

Star Wars: A New Hope - Romanian

X-Wing: The Krytos Trap - Polish

Planet of Twilight - German

Attack of the Clones - Italian

Very nice find Mara! I especially love the Romanian one, for obvious reasons. Also, is it just me, or is anyone else getting the National Geographic vibe from that cover? Very Happy

Kind of funny, the title is literally translated "Wars Star." That happens with a lot of the words though.

War Stars would sound better than Wars Star. Would be kind of cool to have a poster of all the foreign covers.

That Han Solo and the Lost Legacy one looks kind of cool actually. What's that raccoon thing in the picture?

Hey, yeah...if you check out the seller's other stuff, they've got some more Star Wars Romanian books as well. 3 or 4, if I remember correctly. And I dunno...I guess Wars Star makes sense if you just flipped them around. Where War Stars is completely mixed up. *shrugs*
