I'll have to get a copy...I'm a noob to the hobby so this would be very helpful.

Thanks for posting.

An interesting aside, Rick is an animation supervisor/producer on the Simpsons.
He also wrote a book about board games entitled "Spin Again"...
And Classic Plastic is a great reference book with full color reproductions.

This is a great book.  I know my copy is fairly older, so I'm guessing that the prices are out of date, but for the photo reference alone it's great.

Has it ever actually been updated?  Actually, I just answered my own question. On Amazon they have it "new" for ....$237.00!!!!! and used for $38.00!!!!! and up! So I guess no recent editions!
