Star Wars : A Galactic Pop-Up Adventure

The Star Wars franchise has conquered the movies, TV, toys, games, comic books, books, clothing and just about every other conceivable type of mass market item imaginable.

Stars Wars can now add Pop-Up books to its pop culture conquest.  Scholastic/Orchard/Lucas Books has just released the pop-up book of all pop-up books: Star Wars: A Galactic Pop-up Adventure by Matthew Reinhart.

Measuring in at nearly 2-inches thick the hardbound book with Yoda gracing the cover and large Star Wars type printed in gold foil immediately grabs your attention when seen on book shelves.

Inside readers are treated to fold out Podracers, Stormtroopers, Droids, aliens, planets, cities, monsters, villains, heroes, spacecraft and a spectacular fold-out of Anakin Skywalker transforming into Darth Vader.  As Anakin his Lightsaber glows a Jedi green and as Darth Vader its changes to deadly red glow.

The book is a printed 3D adventure that brings the Star Wars universe and its characters to life in clever folded and cut images.
