Book Reviews:

Review by Ewan, Star Wars Books & Comics, 2009:
"Star Wars: Punch Out and Play does exactly what is says on its cover with 12 high-quality images that punch out forming two-dimensional standees of some of the most iconic figures from all six movies. While Star Wars: Punch Out and Play maybe targeted at children and younger Star Wars fans, who will certainly enjoy playing with their favourite Star Wars characters, older readers should not dismiss out-of-hand this book as it puts the fun back into Star Wars. Especially for the many fans that found the Prequel films lacking, or for those that over the last 30 or so years seem to have lost that sense of wonderment they had when seeing Star Wars for the first time. For what better way is there to restore it than having a 10 inch paper standee of Darth Vader or an Imperial Stormtrooper (or both, or even all twelve figures) standing on your desk at work? And you know it's always going to be an office conversation starter, especially the standee of Princess Leia in her slave-girl outfit from Return of the Jedi. You could even rotate the standees to suit your mood: perhaps Yoda or Obi-Wan to offer a little guidance and support; Palpatine or Darth Maul when you feel slightly mischievous; or even Chewbacca, for those moments when you just need a loyal friend.
"The only criticism of this book is that there is not standee of Anakin Skywalker, strangely though there is an image of him from Revenge of the Sith on the inside back cover, as the popularity of The Clone Wars TV series and its related merchandise with children would have made a standee of Anakin more appropriate than that of Nute Gunray.
"Nevertheless, this book is fun so go on, have some fun with Star Wars: Punch Out and Play, it'll brighten your day. And your office."
