COMMENTS
Paperback book sized adaptation of Star Wars. Unlike later versions of this sort, this book is entirely black and white reprints, scaled down to fit the format of the paperback book medium.

This book features a two-page introduction by Stan Lee and a two-page preface by Roy Thomas.

Each chapter (ie. issue) features the original cover, plus an additional page of art introducing the chapter as well as listing the credits for that chapter. Chapter one's art is a variation of the cover, based on the original film poster and appears on the cover of Marvel Special Edition featuring Star Wars #1, Chapter two features Han and Chewbacca from the cover of issue #7, Chapter three has Tarkin and Vader from page 9 of issue #1, Chapter four is a version of the cover art for Marvel Special Edition featuring Star Wars #2, Chapter five features Luke from the cover of issue #1, and Chapter six is the back cover to Marvel Special Edition #2.

The final four pages of the book are pin-ups and include the back cover art from Marvel Special Edition #1, and the remaining three pages all come from Marvel Special Edition #2 by Howard Chaykin and Ernie Chan.

Poll
While it can be argued that both are important to many collectors, the Probe Droid wants to know, if given the choice, would you demand Hasbro brought back all the articulation or improve the paint applications.
Great Paint applications are more important to me.
I'm all about multiple poses, so I'd rather see all the articulation come back.
