I purchased this book following a rather comprehensive comparison and evaluation between this book and other "similar" products. For my needs, this was the perfect book for me and I'm very pleased with my purchase from . The obvious reason to choose this book over any of the alternatives is if your interests lie exclusively with the 3-3/4" G.I. Joe line. For the convenience of those reading this review, I will begin with what I liked about the book and what I wish would have been included.I'll be honest, the primary reason I purchased this book was for the color illustrations. With over 250 pages of incredibly detailed (and clear) photos, I was very impressed with the presentation and layout. I was pleasantly surprised with the 2-3 sentences on each character - as they nicely tied together the toy line, cartoon series, and comics. I will have a bit more to say about the pictures in my portion on suggestions for improvement (perhaps a 2nd edition?)While I agree with other readers that the price guide may not be entirely accurate - it is, nevertheless, useful for gauging the relative prices among the figures. For that reason, no matter how seemingly inaccurate the prices may be, I appreciated some measure of the toys' value.To be sure, there were a few instances when this book didn't meet my expectations. Nevertheless, I awarded this book a 5-star rating because, while there are some things I sorely missed from this edition, those things that it did present were done so well.While I previously lauded over the quality of the images in the book, like other reviewers I took exception to the "bird's-eye" angle used for the vast majority of the vehicle images.
