Anyone heard much about this book? I've been following their page on FB and it looks like it's going to be pretty interesting. Some good and knowledgeable dudes involved as well. Seems they will be revealing the book in Chicago.

Has anyone bought a copy as yet? I have seen from their Facebook updates, they brought copies of this book for sale at the recent Celebration Chicago.

I got a copy while in Chicago. I haven't had much time to read it yet. But the few pages that I did read, are really good.

What I will really like to know, after you have time to go through your personal copy of Engineering An Empire: The Creators of Kenner’s Star Wars Toys, is the coverage of this book up to the early TESB toys or is from the beginning in 1977 from the STAR WARS line up until Kenner's 1985 POWER OF THE FORCE line?

I'll let you know when I have a chance to get back to reading it. I'm still trying to catch up with work & stuff around the house, after being at Chicago. What a Face
