Are you referring to the Essential Guide to Characters? There's not a second volume or updated version for that one. I hope there's one soon, though--it's cool, but way out of date.

I have it on good authority that there will be new versions of all of the essential guides sooner rather than later, including Episode II characters.

It is extremely out of date. They should re-do it after Episode II comes out. That would make me happy! They should also re-do the Vehicles one.

Yes, that is the one I was talking about. And, yes it is outdated. I hope that they do release another volume or something. It was a cool book.

I think all of the Essential books will need a re-do.

I thought I read somewhere (Insider, perhaps?) that the Essential Guide to Chars would be updated to include more EU characters plus the TPM ones. Could be wrong.

Yes, BCJ, see my post above. They'll all get a primo E2-adjacent rerelease. The Character Guide will be the first and will come out in April.

This information was obtained from the latest Insider and also from the backs of sugar packets.

I want an update to the Essential Guide to Weapons and Technology and the Essential Guide to Vehicles & Vessels.

How about an Essential Update to All the Essential Guides Previously Published once a year? Or done as 3-ring binders so you can buy new inserts to add. ;)

The Guide to the STAR WARS Universe was updated after TPM, but rather poorly at that. It was amazing how little they had to write about some of the main characters that had appeared in the film. I am going to wait to buy more of the "essential" books until after the saga has been completed.

A new guide is needed, maybe after the release of EP2?? I hope so, they need to fill lots of questions.

Rollo, where's the pic at?

Here's the SSG article, I hear it was written by a really smart, handsome guy who's got tons of humility. So what if he put it in "Publications" instead of "Comics & Books"? ;)

Obi-Don, there are NJO characters in the book.
