Preview: Fanhome’s The Star Wars Encyclopedia Subscription

By: Robert Prentice

Fanhome, unveiled The Star Wars Encyclopedia, The collection is a monthly subscription with the first shipment containing two books and every shipment afterward containing four books each. 90 books in all for this collection. I received the first 2 books to check out, and they cover 1 Starship (The Millennium Falcon) and 1 Character (Darth Vader). Each hardcover has over 70 pages dedicated to each topic. 

The subscription model has more than the 90 books in the collection with a few collector’s items if you stick with the subscription through certain milestones. Each book helps fans discover the secrets of the galaxy by exploring beloved characters, lore, and mythology, which includes extensively detailing the various starships, weapons, planets, and creatures that inhabit them.

As a fan of Star Wars, even I have learned things from both of these I didn’t know. Backgrounds, schematics, history, and more. The hardcovers are also a nice choice as they sit nice a clean on your bookshelf. And as you build your collection, the outside edge creates a design. In total there will be 23 shipments. This puts the total cost of the collection at just over $1,000 in total which makes this collection a bit on the pricey side. However you can cancel at any time.

You can start your subscription for as little as $1 for the first book and free shipping.
