Hi, Javi,

Though I don't need to show you my support, clear since the project's very birth, I'll publicly say that, from the few pages I have been privileged to see, I have never seen such an exhaustive, patient and riguroes exam of any vintage Star Wars action figure franchise.

Do keep us up to date, all our support in this leviathan and, PLEASE, let us know about the pre-order lol!

Amazing news my friend and a 'must have' for variant collectors.
This is the type of book I'll buy with my eyes closed. I want one, is there a pre-sale option available?

Abrazo Javi!

PostSubject: SMALL UPDATE ABOUT THE BOOK   Sun Sep 07, 2014 12:10 pm

Hi all,

I have been writing the  book for a year or so now , but my very little spare time -which my regular job on art restorations left me- and energy makes me realice that with this timing of work ,the whole project would take me literally years Sad ....

So, i took a tough decision-for several reasons-in my life  ... I have to take a break on my real job and end up the book!

This break will take place from  January to May 2015, so i hope the book would be on the market by June or july 2015!

I think maybe in March i would launch the Crowdfunding project with , costs ,previews, contends and so; looking for sponsors, benefactors and main patrons ...

I really hope the crowd funding project could be completed,if not, i would only print some copies- for friends,forums fellows  and Facebook SW groups who could be interested- under preorder, of course .

Any thoughts will be more than appreciated.

Thanks all,



Javi

Hi Javi, I'm glad you're continuing with the book and have a plan of action to take some time from work to write it.
Good luck and keep us updated Smile

One way or the other, you can count on my support.

Bring it on! Very Happy

The book is in it final stage , it is being designed, in a few weeks we will have some sample pages and the full and final content will be disclosed .

The pre-order page will be available as soon as the full book is finished.I will be taking pre-orders for two months, until i rise the funds for printing it.

Only 500 copies will be printed and only The first 250 orders will obtain the special edition(Hard cover plus hard slip-case) at the same price.

The pre-order sheet will be full of options , from the regular edition to the De-luxe edition, with loads of extra stuff to add and to personalize your copy.

more info coming soon ... Smile
