SYNOPSIS
The largest and most complete guide on Star Wars memorabilia ever assembled, covering more than 75,000 unique Star Wars collectibles illustrated with over 36,000 photos.

After half a decade of research, Gus Lopez and Duncan Jenkins have created the largest Star Wars price guide ever assembled. This guide will serve the beginner and seasoned collector alike with 56 extensive chapters that span every category of collectible. Every Star Wars item from 1977 to present is covered with information about the licensee, country, film, and current secondary market price. This is a truly international guide with approximately 100 different countries represented. Items are indexed by category and licensee, and this guide is the first Star Wars collectibles book to offer a complete licensee index with page references. Each chapter gives an in-depth background on every category of collectible and specifics such as grading, storage, preservation, holy grails, humorous items, and where to locate them. Gus and Duncan's Comprehensive Guide to Star Wars Collectibles is an essential volume on every Star Wars collector's bookshelf.

984-page hardcover with ribbon bookmark, featuring full-color photographs throughout

Duncan Jenkins started collecting Star Wars in the summer of 1977 and created his first database of Star Wars items at the same time. As one of the last remaining completists, he has amassed one of the largest private collections of Star Wars memorabilia in the world. Duncan has shared his extensive knowledge of collecting in presentations at all four US Celebrations, Celebration Europe, Celebration Japan, and at various conventions throughout the world. He is an editor for The Star Wars Collector’s Archive (theswca.com) and contributor to numerous magazine articles, books, and TV/Radio programs.

Gus Lopez is a longtime Star Wars collector whose primary collecting interests include Star Wars cast and crew items, movie props, unproduced toys, cereal boxes, and awards. Gus has written many articles on Star Wars collecting for various publications over the years including Star Wars Insider, Lee’s Toy Review, Toy Shop, Star Wars Galaxy Collector, and the Star Wars Celebration programs. Gus created The Star Wars Collector’s Archive (theswca.com) in 1994—the first Star Wars collecting website on the Internet. He has given talks on Star Wars collecting at many toy, sci fi, and Star Wars conventions in Europe, Asia, and North America. Gus ran the Star Wars collecting tracks for the four Star Wars Celebration events in the US, Celebration Europe in the UK, and Celebration Japan.
