STARWARS.COM CATCHES UP WITH AUTHOR MICHAEL KOGGE TO DISCUSS THE BOOK SERIES AND ITS VERY COOL MODELS — PLUS, WE GET A FIRST LOOK AT THE UPCOMING AT-ACT AND DEATH STAR TITLES.
How do you improve on books about TIE fighters, X-wings, R2-D2, and the Millennium Falcon? Easy: you include DIY 3D wood models, of course. Enter the Star Wars IncrediBuilds series.
