Each page includes a large full-color image of the character, and also included details about the minifigure: number of pieces, year introduced, interesting facts, accessories and variants, etc. At the top of the page you can see which media (Epsiodes I-VI, Clone Wars, Rebels, or Legacy) corresponds to that particular character.
If you're one of those who is interested in collecting all the Star Wars LEGO sets, this book might be helpful. Some of these are quite rare, and the book will tell you exactly what set you will need to find to get the minifigure you're looking for. Or if like most people, you are a more casual fan, you will enjoy browsing the book. Kids will enjoy looking through he book and identifying the character minifigs they own - just be prepared for them to find some new ones that they'll want!
I stopped collecting Star Wars LEGOs some time ago. But I thought this would be a nice book to pick up anyway because I enjoy looking at the designs of the mini-figures; it's fun to see your favorite characters in LEGO form. It will surely be appreciated by anyone fascinated with LEGO Star Wars.

Thanks for reading!
What is particularly interesting about this book is that an exclusive minifigure is also included - Han Solo Decorated Hero.
The characters are presented based on their appearance in the movies. The book is divided according of the movies - Episode I, Episode II, Episode III, Episode IV, Episode V, Episode VI, Clone Wars and Expanded Universe.
Just for fun, I decided to go to the page where Han Solo Decorated Hero was shown. As Star Wars fans would know, Han Solo receive the highest medal of honor for his role in the destruction of the first Death Star in Episode IV. On this page, you can see the figurine and various information linked to it. For example, one of the boxes is linked to the medal and you can read - Princess Leia Organa has awarded Han with this medal of honor for his heroics in the Battle of Yavin. You can also learn that this is the fifth version of Han Solo in LEGO form but the only LEGO Star Wars character available in more versions is Luke Skywalker. Also it is interesting to know that there are three characters that match Han Solo's number: Anakin Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
For the other figurines you can discover in which set of LEGO Star Wars they have been released. Each character has also a data file which gives you information about the set, year, pieces, equipment and the number of variants.
I know that my kids will dig into this book quite a bit and dream of battles they could have with these characters if they had the LEGO Star Wars sets for them. I wouldn't be surprised to see them going through the book with the ones they already have to learn more about them....
The mini-fig is a great addition as well!
