DK has done some great LEGO books before and this one would be the ultimate. Definitely on my 'to acquire' list.
I got a nephew that is too young now, but I am buying LEGO (minifigures especially) to build a good cache to give him when he is LEGO age. This book would be a good addition to that. A copy of my own would be great. It would make a good coffee table book for me. But I don't think I would drink coffee around it - wouldn't want to spill any on this great looking book.

This book will be a wonderful gift for my husband - the avid minifigure collector of the family! It sounds like a fun, comprehensive reference. We will certainly buy one if we don't win one. :-D

Good book, great if they have all the themes in it. Apparently, they are missing Lone Ranger, Pirates Of The Carribean, and Toy Stories.

At some point I will plan on purchasing for the pics of the minifigures that I have mixed up over the years....

I will purchase this book. It's a great way to stroll through a memory lane of Lego minifigs.

The book looks amazing! I have been playing with LEGOs ever since I was a kid. Now that I am older, I love to collect certain sets. It would be cool to look through the book and see sets that I had when I was kid and sets that I collect now.

Since I am in medical school, I don't have much money to spend on recreational things. I will have to go to the store and really check out the book to see if I am going to buy it.

This is the kind of book my kids will obsessively read, so I'll probably pick one up sometime.

I like the format, I wonder if they'll update it with future books or do the whole thing over again in 5 years.

I don't think we'd end up purchasing it. Even at the Amazon discounted price, I'm not sure the value is there. I wish it came with a minifigure, like the Star Wars Character Encyclopedia.

yes.... a book takes up much less space than the real thing- as much as I would like the real thing - I don't have room for that many minifigs.

Love the DK books. Always got the Star Wars ones so when they started doing LEGO there was no way I was going to miss these! Looking forward to this one!

I think this is a great addition to the LEGO book collection. If it truly contains all minifigures ever to be produced, it would be amazing to own. However, I generally only buys LEGO sets and books if they are at least 40%-50% off (I know, kinda harsh), so I will not be picking one up unless I see it on sale.

This book looks very interesting to me and I am looking forward to getting a chance to read it. Probably will not purchase one because I am on a limited budget and would much rather have a set instead. Hope my local library gets a copy.

Definitely getting this book, it'll be a great way to learn about all those minifigures I got when I was a wee child!

The book looks fantastic and I will definitely be getting a copy. I think the only slight detractor from it's awesomeness is the non-exclusivity of the minifigures included, though the robber and new style stormie are very welcome.

I will get this reference book only if it comes with exclusive minifigure. It will be a better idea to cover all minifigs in this book.
