The book sets out to achieve what it promises, but ends up delivering more. The perfect collectors companion.
This has to be a " Must Have", if you're a collector of Sideshow Star Wars figures!!
From the cover photo concept, both front and back, to the construction by the writers and editors.
The photographers with their absolute brilliant photography , this is definitely a book that tells the beginning of how Sideshow. Cornered the market of creating figures from a beloved pop culture, that will stand the test of time.
This is an incredible example of graphic design and book craftsmanship. Whoever spent the hours upon hours to make this book a visual masterpiece needs some serious recognition. The progression and weight of information from page to page is just what you'd want, surprising my expectations and compelling me to flip through the pages. That's something that a lot of people don't appreciate takes hard consideration and foresight on the part of the designer. There's realistically not loads to be said about the replication process of existing franchise characters, but what can be said is shown thoroughly. The flow of information is smooth, the quality of the printing and quality of the page binding is evident. This is a real piece of art. It makes a great reference book for past Sideshow Star Wars products and serves as my new favourite coffee table book. It's not the kind of book you sit down with for hours, but accomplishes what it sets out to do, which is wow the reader visually.
This massive book is beautiful from cover to cover. The photography captures the essence of each character and look like they are straight out of the movie or show. The concept drawings and stories bring the reader along the thought process behind each character or scene. Shipping, however, could have been better, the book must have shifted in transit and crushed a corner slightly. Overall, you’ve got to see this book and enjoy it!
