Star Wars Blueprints Books

As my final post about Star Wars books available at DK Canada, I have decided to present two wonderful item that could be a great addition for any Star Wars fan.  

Star Wars Blueprints The Ultimate Collection

This incredible collection of blueprint posters shows Star Wars locations like you’ve never seen them before! Whether it’s a breakdown of the hyper drive system in the Millennium Falcon, or the complete floor plan of the Deathstar, these blueprints will impress and amaze any Star Wars fan.

Star Wars Blueprints Rebel Edition

Celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of The Empire Strikes Back with detailed plans of the Rebel Alliance in Star Wars Blueprints: Rebel Edition! See how the super high-tech vehicles, weapons, armor, and droids of the Rebel Alliance are designed and built with five fantastic, single-sided, full-color poster-sized blueprints! Placed inside a 32-page book, the posters contain technical drawings, history, movie tidbits, and more. This book- poster combo is an absolute must-have for every Star Wars fan.


My Thoughts

I will admit that I didn’t know what to expect when I choose these two titles.   I picked them based on the fact that they looked different than the other books offered and that it could be fun to study as part of our homeschool.  

So these two titles were the first ones I opened up when I received the box from DK Canada.    And I got really excited because I knew that these would be greatly appreciated in our family.   

Both contains marvelous posters that will show the blueprints of various well-known Star Wars ships, locations, droids, Dark Vader.    The Ultimate Collection posters also have two sides one side showing the blueprint while the other side shows an image from the movie.   On the other hand, the Rebel Edition also has a 32-page book attached to the box.    Both blueprints cases will provide detailed drawings and information on what the blueprint is about – whether a vehicle, weapon, droid, ship, location and so on.     The details are amazing and will keep a fan busy for a while.

When I showed them to my husband he was also excited and we came up with a plan for our boys.   We are planning to surprise our daughter with new colors in her bedroom later this month.  She won’t know about it until we come back from a little outing.    So we thought it would be fun to have these blueprints up on the walls of the boys’ room to surprise them as well.     They will be excited about it and will want to check them all out immediately.    I can’t hardly wait to surprise them!   *grin*

Now the reason I am presenting you these books today is that a big event held by DK Canada on May the 4th -  WAIT A MINUTE – IT’S TODAY!!!!! If you want to have the opportunity to provide fabulous book to a great reading foundation I strongly suggest that you continue reading.
