Star Wars: The Blueprints Impression

The design of an entire galaxy and it fits perfect on your coffee table

Debate Star Wars vs. Star Trek all you want but there has always been one area dominated by Star Trek and that’s the availability of their universes schematics, their blueprints. From the Enterprise to Deep Space 9, the Trek franchise has made the real world details and measurements available to uber fans and now Star Wars is getting into the game in a big way. Star Wars: The Blueprints is the first ever collection of the original blueprints created for the Star Wars saga. This is not just a series of copied pages, it’s a hard bound and numbered gem that brings to life the work of those behind the scenes, the artist, engineers and designers who crafted the droids we love to the fighters we wanted to pilot. Locations and concepts are shared showing off how the galaxy was crafted. So what’s to love, let’s take a quick look …

More than just tech specs – Calling this just a collection of blueprints is a complete joke. Yes, there are a large number of highly detailed blueprints but the layout is so much more. Blueprints can fold out for large ships such as Jabba’s sail barge while the reader is treated to intro paragraphs on each blueprint with concept art and set layout. This folks is the entire package

That's no moon … it’s a book! Over 330 pages with a 15 inch by 18 inch size, this book is no joke. The quality of paper, biding and case is gorgeous and well done and unlike all those one-off Star Trek ship blueprint packets this collection is the Death Star of creative books. Simple amazing and awesome in size there is nothing not to love about the scope and scale of this collector’s item.

Overall this book shows off what a true fan you are, that is if it’s sitting in your house. The amount of detail, complete picture of concept to creation and implementation gives insight into one of the most beloved film franchises ever. With a rich history and no end in sight to new ideas (Clone Wars) the Star Wars universe is as alive as ever so why not get a piece of its legacy to share with friends and enjoy for all its intricate detail.


  1. This is one of those things that if my budget allowed it, I'd get it. I've always found looking at blueprints for my favorite SF franchises of interest, as well as the "how did we come up with this design" aspect.
