The only truly Japanese Star Wars books have been the two mangas that were not sold by Dark Horse (Manga: Silver and Manga: Black).

You can find those on eBay, but check with the seller before you buy. Because they're not distributed by North American companies, they are not all in English. I found a French one not too long ago.

Thanks Taral-DLOS, but I meant the Japanese translations of the novels. I can't read them, but they have cool cover artwork.

Ya I'm trying to get ahold of the NJO books with the Japanese covers. They put more effort into displaying EU characters and such with them. Ours were cool, theirs were more cartoonish, but they got more character out of theirs. Plus their Dark Journey books have a Hapan Battle Dragon on the front, and who doesn't love that.

Those covers are also hilarious because they are just photoshopped. Isn't the battle dragon a shopped Klignon warbird (or whatever that is called, I don't know Trek)?

Uh, its giant and round? Lol a warbird looks like a bird. A Battle Dragon is a two level, giant structure with guns all around the perimeter that rotate and spin. I loved finally getting to see one.

And ya, some of the bad photoshopping is hilarious but its worth it to see better shorts of the characters like Saba or Cilghal. Even Anakin got better covers because he was at least visible. Oh and Harrar got a great moment to!

Yea those look absolutely nothing like Klingon ships.

And regarding terminology, it's called a Klingon Bird of Prey (the little ships). The big ones are just called Battle Cruisers or other such terms. Warbird is used to describe Romulan ships. The new Trek film erroneously used the term for big Klingon ships too, and they admitted their mistake in some of the blu-ray featurettes.

The one I remember was on the cover of Dark Journey, I forgot they were on this one to.

Speaking of the Klingon ships and the Hapans...

The Hapan Nova-class cruiser. If they were on a cover, it wouldn't have been wrong.

That guy third from our right, in between Han and Anakin (I think that's Anakin) looks like an Altmer. Wink

ah, I dunno. I thought I read that they used a trek ship somewhere. They did all kinds of crazy things with the spaceships in SW art. There was a poster for I think the first movie where they have like 4 Millenium Falcon's because the artist just saw it and didn't know that it wasn't one of the regular ships they'd have a bunch of.

Movie posters can be weird. There's a great article on Cracked.com about foreign movie posters (that is to say, posters from other countries about American movies) that totally get it wrong. One for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows made it look like Hermione was coming from a rave. One for District 9 showed a robot army. They're sometimes a bit insane.

@SidiousThrawn: do you have the Galaxy of Fear series? I'm working on collecting those now. That and the Junior Jedi Knights, some of which are ridiculously hard to get.

No. I stayed away from GOF since it was for kids and I've sold the YJK series since, they did not hold my interest.
