From Sideshow, very interesting.

Star Wars Frames



Quote
This is Star Wars: Frames, published by Insight Editions:

The ultimate limited edition, Star Wars: Frames brings together master filmmaker George Lucas's personal shot-by-shot selections from all six legendary Star Wars films. Limited to 1,138 copies and showcased in a sumptuous deco-inspired wooden box, Star Wars: Frames contains six books, each corresponding to one of the movies in the Star Wars saga....all six books reside in the beautiful wood-inlaid box, which is adorned with two exclusive high-relief sculptures of Darth Vader and Yoda...

Holy cow. This thing's big: 25.75 inches long, 12.25 inches wide, 13.5 inches tall. Each book is 44 inches across when opened. The weight of the whole shebang? A whoppin' 210 pounds. It'd take a Jedi to levitate that thing!

Damn, that looks like a fantastic set of books!  However, something that is that limited, large and with that much dressing (wooden box, reliefs of Vader and Yoda) has got to cost a bunch...  Can't wait to get more details on this one.

Since it's limited to 1,138 pieces, I'll take a guess and say it costs $1,138.00.

a sample copy of Star Wars: Frames will be on display at this year's San Diego Comic-Con from July 24 through 27.

Would be something to see in person.

Star Wars Frames - Are you sitting down for this?    
Reported by Adam on 03 Jul 2008 17:28

Forum member dr_bob was interested to know about pricing on the Star Wars Frames set that we reported last week and here's the response he got from the publishers...

Hello,

We are taking pre-orders now and are shipping in February 2009.

Frames pricing is as follows: 

BATCH A (#1 - #250)                $4,000
BATCH B (#251 - #500)            $4,250
BATCH C (#501 - #750)            $4,500
BATCH D (#751 – #1,000)        $4,750
BATCH E (#1,001 – #1,138)      $5,000

So just to clarify, those prices are in thousands, and as dr_bob points out, rather bizarrely, the lower numbers in the run are actually the cheaper ones!

Dammit.  I love this set, but there's no way I could afford it right now.

Wow, I can't imagine even your die-hard fan being able to afford this set of books.  I really think that Sideshow is going to take a bath on this one...  If I really want to see clips from the movies that bad I'll watch them and know I paid about $15-$20 each for the movies ;D

This is obviously aimed at the high-end collector like a Steve Sansweet than 99% of collectors.

I'd really like to have something that nice, but there's just no way right now.
