DK Publishing released two LEGO Brickmaster Books this year — Pirates and Castle ($24.99 USD). However, rumors are already starting to fly about one that won’t be available till mid-July of 2010 — LEGO Brickmaster Star Wars.
There is no image (not surprising this early) but at Amazon.co.uk you can already pre-order the book for £14.09 (that’s English pounds for those who don’t know).
Also, according to Overstock.com there is also a LEGO Brickmaster LEGO City coming out at the same time.
I actually just found both the Pirates and Castle Brickmaster books at my local TJ Max (of all places) a little while ago. I didn’t pay $25 though, it was more like $15. In my opinion, that’s about how much they are worth. Yes, they are reminiscent of the Idea Books of yore and you do get a small amount of bricks to build with, but the cost is just a tad too pricey. Also, the book is a little awkward in shape, 3/4′s of it is the cardboard box that contains the bricks. So you have this really thick cover and then about 40 actual pages.
It will be interesting to see this Star Wars Brickmaster, but I will hold all opinions until it is actually available.
