...had BETTER be released in the States and in English!
I LOVE the old Action Figure Archive book- it truly has almost every variant (they missed a few R5-D4's ), but these new updates should remedy that.
With any luck, the 6 volume set will be brought to America as a compendium.
On top of that, they should separate the figure releases in the books, IMHO- more like POTF 1995-2000 (through the COMMTech POTF figures), then the Prequel Carded figures (i.e. TPM Cards, AOTC Cards, Clone Wars Cards, then the ROTS Cards), then the POTJ/SAGA/OTC/VOTC, etc. in another volume. It'd be easy to find the figures you were after if they were separated by movie for the prequels, and easier to find classic figs by release.
All they would then need is a master timeline so you could find out which figures were released and when.
...of course, no master compendium is possible until Hasbro stops releasing Star Wars figures all together (again), but this may never, ever happen...
