We all know that there are 3 editions of this reference book. I have the 2nd and plan on getting the 3rd. But I want some info on the 1st.

When was it printed, how long is it, and does anyone have one or know where I can get one?

First of all, don't get the third edition! It's terrible, at least from what I'd read in the stores. For some reason, the year 1984 stands out for the first one.

BCJ's right about the third edition. It doesn't even list Sebulba or Watto, despite coming out a year or more after TPM!

Raymond J Velasco's 1st edition indeed did come out in 1984. My copy is completely thumb worn from years of use. The 2nd edition was okay, but if you want a comprehensive Star Wars guide, get the Star Wars Encyclopedia by Steve Sansweet. It's a little more pricey than the Guide, but well worth the extra cash.

What ever you do DON'T buy the 3rd edition....it is POODOO.

Speaking of Steve Sansweet, I always thought SirSteve and he were the same, so here are my BSLOS...
