Coffee Table Status (Star Wars: Blueprints)

Been dreaming of hiring a celestial crew to build your very own fully armed and operational battle station? You're going to need this. Star Wars: The Blueprints ($500) brings together for the first time more than 500 photographs and illustrations that show how the Star Wars galaxy was designed, from R2-D2 and the Cantina to the Millennium Falcon and the Death Star, accompanied by commentary by J. W. Rinzler and many of the original draftsmen who worked on the designs themselves. More than a simple book, this deluxe 15" x 18" tome weighs in at 35 pounds, and is limited to just 5,000 English-language copies, each of which will be hand-numbered. Technically, it's sorta like owning the MacGuffin from Episode IV.

Great, just one more thing on the list of things that I want (need) to buy.
