Not yet, but it's a must have! Mr. Green
I need it so it can stand next to my DAG. Wink

Didn't win one, but ordered mine the other day. Just waiting for the release date now! Mr. Green

I can't wait to have this and put it on my shelf next to DAG.

Got mine yesterday!

It's very different from DAG. For one thing this one has a lot of text to accompany the pictures, which DAG doesn't.
I feel it may lean a little towards the Bad Guys costumes with a fold out on both Vader and Boba, but it also have some excellent photos of some of the details on some of Leia's costumes and the rebel pilots.

I was disappointed that it didn't feature the ceremonial dress considering that Leia only wore two costumes in that entire movie. (And they go by movie in this one rather than character category like in DAG).
I was thrilled by the close up and excellent full body shoots of Leia's Cloud City clothes, in particular the embroidery.
I was about to hit my head into a wall the moment I saw the pages for Ewok Village Leia, but only because I've realized my pattern is not as correct as I had hoped and I can't change it now without having to redo the entire thing. (I've got a longer rant about that in my WIP thread).

Many new pictures have been taken of the old costumes for this book and so it's important to remember that the colors are often a bit off and that the costumes have the wear and tear of 30+ years. But even so they offer a lot of information on the various costumes and I'm quite happy to have this as part of my collection. Smile

The thing I miss in SWC compared to DAG? That little character and costume index in the back where all the different costumes and character are listed even if they aren't featured in the book. I really love that in DAG.

Pre-ordered mine! Can't wait to get it. I hope there are some pics of the Hoth costumes. I should get it by the 2nd.

This "trailer" video makes me even more excited: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFMUUCCb9h8

This is first on the list of things I am getting once I get a job again.

I got mine a week before expected and I'm not complaining. Wink It's been open on the EVL pages constantly for the last few days.

And yes, the Hoth costume is in it.

So excited to receive my book.

I do wish that it would have an accompanying DVD of sorts. Like what was shown in the book trailer. Having the costume out and talking about it. Ahh, I can dream, can't I? Smile
