Not to be overlooked, Steve Sansweet had a great book that came out recently, Star Wars: The Ultimate Action Figure Collection.



The books is a great for checking out all the Star Wars action figures. It has 2,500 of them, all with pictures! I finally got this from B&N the other week and I've been drooling over it ever since. There are so many Star Wars figures I've never seen before. Now I find myself with a whole new wishlist Cool

It's definitely worth checking out. My only gripe is that it's arranged by name, so I couldn't find all the Ewoks in one place. Instead they're spread throughout. However, the arrangement still works pretty good.

Does it only have the Kenner and Hasbro toys or does it include Harbert, Meccano, Palitoy, Toltoys, PBP, Takara, Clipper, Lili Ledy, etc.?

Just Kenner and Hasbro, though Steve comments about some of the others.

Thanks. It's probably better that way, don't need to feed the fakers on evilbay.

I was excited about this book when it was first announced, but had forgotten about it until seeing this thread.

Here's a couple pics of what the actual contents look like. Pretty much all of the figures are in this format.
