Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia - £39.03 + 8% Quidco + Waterstones Points - Preorder @ Waterstones

Found 20th Nov 2008Made hot 21st Nov 2008
I had this on preorder with Amazon for £34 (misprice), but they are playing funny games with the preorders on it at the moment. This price is actually comparable - after Quidco it should be about £36, plus you get Waterstones points with it too (and free delivery) - less than half of the £75 RRP

You have to use the 20% off voucher to get this price - ZY6492 - which is valid until Sunday

Release date seems to be open to debate - Waterstones have it at 24/04/2009, whereas Amazon are saying 19 Dec 2008 - it would be nice if it was here before Xmas!

Here is the link to the original Amazon thread on this - ]http//ww…e=2

I believe that publisher and release date changed hence we arent getting the original Amazon one.

No the original one on Amazon UK was a US import book by Del Ray with the ISBN of 978-0345477637

Looks like Amazon UK have pulled the imports.


And Quidco may only go through as 4%

Thanks for that info - a bit off that they haven't changed our orders to the UK version at Amazon - gets them off the hook though I guess.....

I hadn't seen that bit about 4% Quidco - still, the price works out at just over £36 after Quidco and Waterstones points anyhow. Good price I reckon.

BTW, anyone know the actual release date of this?

Yep - I saw that, but there are different dates given depending on where you look - Amazon say 19th Dec 2008, as do Bookbrain................

I chased this up with them - here's the reply:

I have looked into your enquiry regarding the item titled The Complete "Star Wars" Encyclopedia by Stephen J. Sansweet from your order number and I can confirm that the publication date is 24/04/2009. When we receive stock for this item we will ship the item to you immediately.

I have also double checked with our suppliers and they confirm that the release date is correct.



I have also emailed the publishers Titan and am awaiting their reply.

I used to work for Titan Books....I'll have to see if I can blag a copy off a mate!!!!

Titan have confirmed it wont be released until Spring 09. The Star Wars Store still has it pencilled for release on 19th Dec, can only presume our US friends are more important than us...

ggrrrr, that is really annoying, thought it might be out b4 Xmas. Thanks for the info though :thumbsup:

Amazon have now officially cancelled my £34 pre-order and kindly pointed me towards the £48 alternative :roll:, so I'm glad I got this Waterstones order in now.....

Mine has just been depatched, two months early

Arrived this morning - great set of books, ideally suited to any Star Wars geek and a bargain for the price. Ta again OP.

Great - mine came this morning as well. Looking forward to opening them later and having a proper look through.

Amazon are still showing this as a pre-order, with release date as late April! Go figure :?

Cheers for the rep hurdy - right back at ya! :thumbsup:
