Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Droids does a great job of informing the user everything they want to know about the Star Wars droids. The schematics are great and descriptions are very informative.

I'm finding myself giving this book and the essential guide to vehicles and vessels 5 stars simply because of the huge amount of hours I spent looking through them and escaping boredom by escaping into a fantasy realm. of course the schematics are great, and the page long description of everything is great too. part history book, part sears catalog they're a great buy for the star wars nerd out there. young or old.

Gorgeous technical drawings. I found this book to be quite enjoyable to read, given the amount of imagination and creativity exhibited on the part of the author / illustrator. Recommended for Star Wars fans.

This one has schematics, which IMO makes it better then the New Essential Guide, with its CGI illustrations.

As with the weapons book, be a complex technical Manual full of detailed blueprints or be a kid friendly bright book of integrating facts. A good book but mixed up in its appeal.
