It feels like a while since we covered a new LEGO book from DK Publishing. A new volume of picture-laden books from them is always welcome, quite naturally. Not only have DK LEGO books been cool visual references, their extra goodies are highly sought after too. They tend to be uncommon or rare minifigure variants inside every DK volume’s hardcover. And this latest book, themed for LEGO Star Wars, carries on that fine tradition. In fact, Amazon listed it already as early as July last year, for release this 2022. The thing is, that was April 2022, but this new date’s for a bit later.
As told by Brick Fanatics, the DK-published LEGO Star Wars “Awesome Vehicles” is now available for preorder ahead of release. On the official DK site, the availability’s now listed at June 7, 2022. That’s about two months after the original release date teased in 2021. One other change is with the free minifig in the hardbound cover. It’s still Poe Dameron from the “Star Wars” Sequel Trilogy, only this time he’s armed with a blaster. “Awesome Vehicles” comes from veteran DK LEGO book author Simon Hugo. We can rest assured it’ll be both Age-6+-focused but still all-ages-friendly in content relevance.
Poe being the free minifig for LEGO Star Wars “Awesome Vehicles” makes sense. He’s the “host” for the book, providing guides and trivia bits for the many LEGO Star Wars sets featured. The volume’s quite a deal with its $19.99 SRP. Preorders are available, as before, from Amazon and major platforms like Barnes & Noble
