The Brothers Brick Senior Editor Chris Malloy and Editor-in-Chief Andrew Becraft recently completed a new hard-cover coffee table book titled Ultimate LEGO Star Wars from DK. An up-to-date reference that covers the full range of LEGO Star Wars sets and minifigs from the first sets in 1999 to The Force Awakens and Rogue One, the book is due out on October 3, and is available for preorder now.
The book includes spreads on characters, locations, and vehicles, such as the various LEGO B-wing sets that have been released over the years.

does it contain the newest Millenium Falcon by any chance?
Ha! Wouldn’t that be awesome! :-D
Oh, wait. I thought you were joking about the special minifig or small set that these books often contain. The UCS Falcon hadn’t officially been announced yet when we finished the book, but the editorial team may have filled in a couple of obvious gaps on the MF pages after we handed off the draft text from our end. I haven’t seen a final copy yet myself, but yes, I suspect it does include the UCS Falcon — but it certainly won’t go into as much depth about it as our recent review here on TBB. ;-)
Haha that calls for a new edition soon then, or a special printed page for us to add? :)
I’m hoping they added the Last Jedi sets after we finished as well, even if that reduces how much of the text is “ours” by a little bit. Either way, it’s the kind of reference work that’s immediately out of date as soon as it’s published. Sounds like a guaranteed 2nd Edition in a couple of years, then!
