Chapters Canada now has the book on for $147.
Star Wars Chronicles


Wow, $225 CDN for the OT version.  Can any book really be worth that?  If it is, I'd love for someone to convince me.   :)

If the Prequel version is anywhere near that...   :-\

Well, you've certainly got my interest up.

I checked Amazon.com: on sale for $94.50, but it takes 1-2 months to ship.

Definitely the best SW book out there, by far.  I say go for it Jess!  I'll definitely be picking up the next one as well.  Very nice reference/"coffee table" book.  Loads of actual prop pictures (close-up) from the archives, and stuff like that.  I'll have to pull mine back out and refresh my memory a little, and let you know some further details on it...

Thats a good price for $94.50 which roughly works out to at todays exhange rate $114.00 CDN.

Amazon.ca still has it listed at $157.50 by Deborah Fine or $233.79 by Take Shobo but there out of stock.

I noticed that too.  The one by Take Shobo, is that the original Japanese version?

From reading a few reviews, it sounds like it's a beautiful book, so much to look at.  We're setting up a little sitting area in our basement with a couple couches and a coffee table, I may just have found the ideal book for that table.   :)

Like others have said, the book is worth the money.

It's book is hefty, definitely not bathroom reading material.  I just got my SW books set up and have it out after months in storage. Going to browse through it again shortly.

It's finally available: Star Wars Chronicles: The Prequels!



It's listed at StarWarsShop.com for $149.99 and ships on October 25th.  Strangely, they claim it's a SWS.com exclusive, but it's also listed on Amazon.com as well, and much cheaper at $94.50.

The SWS.com listing mentions it is signed by both authors, Steve Sansweet and Pablo Hidalgo.

I too have the original book and I can not wait for this new one! The custom reference material alone is worth the price. I won't be buying it from the SWS.com that's for sure. I reported the other day on yakface.com that you can get it much cheaper from Amazon ($94.50 + free shipping) or Walmart.com ($87.00 w/o shipping). Bring on Oct 25th!!!!

I was keeping an eye on the OT Chronicles book in an eBay auction - it's definitely still in high demand.  It finished for $268.32US or $315CDN.  Wow.

I saw BOTH of the Star Wars Chronicles books at Costco yesterday - only $90 each!  They've got the new Prequels version, and an updated cover version of the old OT one.  They're both shrinkwrapped, so I can't tell if there's been any actual updates inside of the original OT one.  If there has, I'm gonna be pissed!

Anyway, a great deal for you Costco members!

Buy.com is only $85.05  and it qualifys for free shipping.  Cheapest price I've seen so far.  I'm thinking about using my Visa GC to buy it, but wanted to get some feedback on buy.com.  Anyone ever deal with them?  How are they?

I went ahead and placed an order with buy.com.  Received a shipping notification about a day later and it should arrive shortly.  Can't wait.

I already had it,  but I picked up the OT one for a buddy the other day in a used bookstore for the grand total of $25.00....needless to say I paid more for mine a couple of years ago :P
But it IS an awesome book. 
 The PT one is going for about $120 at Costco here in Toronto.   Probably won't get it though, unless someone here changes my mind with a review.  The thought of looking through pages and pages of pics and info on Jar Jar is painful.
